Mastodon bring Motherload to TV

Mastodon can be seen in a clip from Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night US TV show, performing their track The Motherload.

It’s taken from sixth album Once More ‘Round The Sun, which was launched in June.

Drummer Brann Dailor recently described it as a “gorgeous” work, adding: “It’s a reflection of our past with a few songs that are a bit out-there and show a new direction. We’re as happy with it as we were our previous albums.”

The band return to the UK in November.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
