MASTODON are currently blazing a path across the North American continent in support of their wildly acclaimed new album THE HUNTER, which features the hit single, "Curl of the Burl." Check out the official video here, and watch the band performing the song live on BBC's Later with Jools Holland here.
At last, the definitive Masto-merch item that brings THE HUNTER to life is available and ready for Holiday purchase now! The Hunter Mask is 100% hand made, painted and assembled, these custom masks are made from a thick plastic and were made locally in the Los Angeles area by a special effects company. They are limited and hand numbered on the inside. Very comfortable to wear and by no means subtle. Fly your Mastodon pride boldly in the face of THE HUNTER for $39.99 while they last. Just a reminder, THE HUNTER Limited Edition vinyl pressings in both Standard and Deluxe Editions are out and available now!
At present, "Curl Of The Burl" continues it's ascent at radio into the Top 20 and has made it's presence felt:
"The ambitious prog-metal warriors pack their attack into a three-minute plus brute rocker ("Curl of The Burl)." - Rolling Stone / Singles column
"Heavy as ever and flytrap-catchy. In the end, however The Hunter's main weapon is the tune." -- Sound & Vision Magazine
"On 'The Hunter,' Mastodon have gone back to basics at the height of their powers....raging metal with a sterling production....ethereal and crushing. It's official: Mastodon are one of the all-time great hard-rock groups." - Alternative Press
