Mastodon have a LARP with High Road video

Mastodon have launched their video for High Road, inspired by Live Action Role Play and designed to celebrate their "nerd" fans.

It’s taken from upcoming album Once More ‘Round The Sun, set for launch on June 24 via Reprise.

Last month drummer Brann Dailor told TeamRock: “There are all different factions of nerdom in the Mastodon world. LARPing is just one of them, and they’re all good video fodder.”

He added the band have “literally millions of ideas” for videos inspired by their followers’ activities, adding: “A good proportion of the Mastodon fanbase are nerds – probably.”

The band return to the UK for Sonisphere at Knebworth on July 4-6.

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, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories 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.
