Mastodon’s Brann Dailor Says He Tested Positive For COVID-19 After The Band’s Recent Tour With Opeth: “I Got Pretty Sick”

During a recent interview with Art Of Rock, Mastodon’s Brann Dailor revealed that he tested positive for COVID-19 shortly after the band’s U.S. tour with Opeth. The musician says that he was “sick for a couple of weeks.”

Dailor said the following:

“Right when I got home from tour, I had COVID — like the day I got home. I tested positive. I got pretty sick, actually. I was sick for a couple of weeks. I was down and out. But I guess the good news of it was it didn’t happen while we were on tour and it happened when I got home. So I was, like, ‘Oh, I’m sick.’ And I had the opportunity to be sick and I didn’t have to get on stage and play and stuff, which I’ve done with the flu many times; it’s one of the worst feelings ever, but you’ve gotta bring the music to the people. It doesn’t matter how you feel — do it.”

“Many times I’d be laying backstage, on one of the couches backstage, just feeling like death, thinking to myself, ‘I don’t know how I’m gonna pull this off,’ and then getting up there. I’ve had some of my best shows when I’ve been sick as a dog. So I don’t know what happens there. But something else takes over. Maybe a couple of NyQuils [cough, cold and flu medicine] and you’re feeling like you’re out of your mind and you get up there and just play the drums and your body takes over. I don’t recommend it.”

On another note, Dailor also revealed that Mastodon have another U.S. tour planned for this year:

“We will announce something soon. We’re just waiting for it to completely solidify and come all together. But, yeah, there’ll be some dates coming up soon.

It’s a strange world, isn’t it? It’s been a strange time. Nothing’s really stable right now, unfortunately. We kind of thought that, ‘Okay, we’re back. Everything’s back, right?’ But it’s, like, hold your horses, I guess. But I think that things are moving in the right direction. We should have a nice, big announcement soon for another tour in the States.”
