Mastodon’s Brann Dailor To Release New Book Of Clown Illustrations “101 Clowns Of The Coronavirus”

Mastodon’s Brann Dailor has teamed up with Revolver to release a new book called “101 Clowns Of The Coronavirus.” The effort will feature various clown illustrations that Dailor drew during the pandemic, as well as commentary from Metallica‘s Lars Ulrich, Queens Of The Stone Age‘s Josh Homme, Deftones‘ Chino Moreno, Lamb Of God‘s Randy Blythe, and more. Pre-orders are available HERE and they are expected to ship by October 4.

Dailor commented:

“The clowns kept me from spiraling out during all the uncertainty. They kept me from sinking into a deep depression or experiencing crippling anxiety. The clowns were perfect for that — even the dark ones.”

He also added:

“I’d get up every day and have my glass of water, two tangerines and a cup of coffee. Then I’d crack the sketchbook open. In my notes on my phone, I probably had 10 or 15 clown ideas I could pull from if I hadn’t thought of something the night before. The thing that I came to find out is that anything is clown-able. The clown is such an icon that you can turn anything into a clown.”

“For years, Batman has been tracking a mystery. He’s quietly been pulling a thread, conducting research in secret laboratories across the globe and stowing evidence deep in the Batcave, hidden even from his closest allies. Now, in an epic story spanning generations, the heroes and villains of the DC Universe, including Green Lantern, The Joker, Wonder Woman and more, are about to find out what he’s discovered–and it could threaten the very existence of the Multiverse!”
