Mastodon launch promo for Asleep In The Deep


Mastodon have released a video for their track Asleep In The Deep.

The song is taken from latest album Once More ‘Round The Sun and the video – which stars a curious cat – was masterminded by artist Skinner, who was responsible for the album’s eye-catching cover art.

Skinner says: “This concept was birthed out of my curiosity about what a cat really does at night while we are asleep. Where do they go? Cats have a very mysterious myth to them and I thought it would be cool to explore that, as little nocturnal heroes.

“I decided to put a sort of Joseph Campbell hero myth spin on it and add some Jodorowsky psychedelia as well. I’m more than excited about the way it came out. I love it.”

Mastodon have released an online exclusive bundle to celebrate the video premiere. It includes an Asleep In The Deep t-shirt and movie-style poster.
