Mastodon Appear To Be Working On New Music

It looks like Mastodon are working on some new music. Brann Dailor posted the following:

Mastodon Release “Ancient Kingdom” Beer

Mastodon have teamed up with Mikkeller once again to create their third collaborative beer. This one is named after their track “Ancient Kingdom” and it is available in select European stores now.

Mastodon’s Brann Dailor commented:

“Couldn’t be more excited to be collaborating once again with one of our favorite and internationally revered breweries Mikkeller. Ancient Kingdom is the perfect name for this beautifully brewed Czech Pilsner. We hope to swill a few with you on our European tour this winter, or on the beach this summer! Breach the walls of the ancient Kingdom and discover the bountiful riches hidden inside.”

Mikkeleler’s Mikkel Borg Bjergsø added:

“Our third collaboration with Mastodon is possibly going to be the best one so far. Not only did we agree on my favorite beer style at the moment, but the label and packaging came out amazing, and Brann and the guys named the beer after what I think is one of the top songs off of Emperor Of Sand. We always have a great time working with Mastodon, and we look forward to catching up with them early next year when they return to Europe.”

Mastodon’s Brent Hinds Reveals He Missed The 2018 Grammy Awards After Getting Injured In A Hit & Run

Mastodon won a Grammy for “Sultan’s Curse” back in January, but Brent Hinds was unable to attend the ceremony and he has a good excuse why. As it turns out, he was actually hospitalized after being involved in a hit and run while riding his motorcycle. Hinds confirmed the news on Instagram while talking about the new Ben Winston film “Hell Bound,” which he contributed music to. That movie is premiering at the Plaza Theatre in Atlanta, GA tonight (November 8). Hinds commented:

“Go see this movie..!!! I was lucky enough to live through playing a Lil bit a guitar on the sound track on January 23, 2018 and that’s why I couldn’t attend the Grammy’s (because I was involved in a hit and run on my motorcycle that ended me up in 🐎 pistola)..that i got absolutely NO shout out from my best friends/band mates💔 ..I know they love me and just be havin stupid nervousness,but still ! Here is a few photos of the results 😂 it’s opnening at @plazaatlanta tonight ! Made by Ben Weinstein ..don’t no his IG handle @hellbound_the_movie”

For #Halloween 🎃 I’m going as a scumbag named Scam Likely 🕺🏼 He was once fired by a laundry company that serviced women’s prisons bcz he got caught sniffing the dirty bedding 😐 At his local bar, he offers #freemustacherides to anyone who’ll listen. Only a few have said yes so far but the list includes his grandma’s bingo partner, an albino yoga instructor from Belarus 🧘🏻‍♂️ and a #CheetoShitler supporter (with blonde hair & spray tan) who demanded he call her Mr. Big Hands 🤔 Scam douses himself with a bottle of Sex Panther cologne hoping to hide his chronic halitosis that reeks of dirty ashtrays boiled with used diapers in a public restroom 🤢 He’s had four teeth removed, his jaw broken by a young law student for “inappropriate touching” 😑 His next project is to upload some “really slick shit” & maybe someone will say “that dude’s a fucking stud” & he’ll be awarded the Ambassadorship to Acapulco (we’ve tried telling him so just forget it) 🙄 And when he gets bored he begins his ritual of cringe that’s just too gross to print 😖 So remember the name #ScamLikely 🕺🏼 It’s gonna be dreadfully delightful 🎃 If you get offended that’s on you. Maybe look in the mirror to see if you’re a creep too 🤨 Otherwise just deal with it. It’s a comedic bit. From now till Halloween ☠️💋 #besafe & #bleesedbe 🙏🏽 🎃 #Boss 🧟‍♂️#Alpha 🙋🏼‍♂️ #King 👑 #OTEP 💀

Just paying homage to the show that fundamentally shaped me for better or worse. Met one of our old friends, MC Pee Pants aka @_mcchris having a trick or treater as a snack (I’m surprised Satan let you back up here). Didn’t see Willie Nelson though. Becoming Carl and shaving my beard was like the episode where he meets the successful family man version of himself and converts him back to his original slob self and gets him to shave his hair off. It felt good to release my inner slob though. #aquateenhungerforce #aquateenforever #mcpeepants #frylock #mastershake #dewey #vanessa #612warfavenue #nexttothegentlemensclub #halloween #newjersey @careymeans @eyeofthesnyder @_mcchris @adultswim @aquateenforever
