MASTODON Complete Work On First Video

October 7, 2003

Relapse Records recording artists MASTODON have completed work on their first music video — for the track "March of the Fire Ants" off their acclaimed release "Remission". The clip was shot in the band's hometown of Atlanta with director Chad Rullman (NEUROSIS) and is said to be a "surreal narrative" incorporating principal photography, and featuring MASTODON performing as a part of the story line. It is expected to make its world debut imminently.

Having returned to Atlanta after more than a year of non-stop touring, MASTODON will now resume work on the as-yet-untitled follow-up to "Remission", slated for a summer 2004 release. The deluxe version of MASTODON's "Remission" CD with a free, bonus DVD featuring a pro-filmed nine song live set complete with previously unreleased material is due in stores October 21.

MASTODON's "March of the Fire Ants" appears on the MTV2 "Headbanger's Ball" 2xCD compilation alongside tracks from hard music giants DEFTONES, HATEBREED and SLAYER, as well as fellow fast-rising artists KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, SHADOWS FALL, POISON THE WELL and ARCH ENEMY.
