Video footage of MASTODON in the studio working on the material for the follow-up to 2006's "Blood Mountain" can be viewed below. A late 2008 release via Warner Bros. Records is expected.
As previously reported, MASTODON was one of the scheduled performers at the finals of the U.S. Open Snowboarding Championships at Stratton Mountain in Vermont.
The 26th annual competition bills itself as "the Most Righteous Snowboarding Battle of the Ages," according to The Associated Press. It includes under-the-tent jousting demonstrations and features halfpipe, slopestyle and big air events.
This year, NBC televised the finals, on tape delay, on March 23.
Check out pictures of MASTODON's performance on the band's MySpace page (free MySpace registration required to view photos).
MASTODON's cover version of the THREE DOG NIGHT track "One" is currently being used in the ad campaign for the multiplatform videogame "Army of Two".
