Watch Mastodon’s Epic Music Video For “High Road”


Say what you will about it, but metal is a pretty geeky – yet still relatively awesome – genre of music. Mastodon fully embrace this idea with their new music video to “High Road,” which comes off of their upcoming album Once More ‘Round The Sun, slated for release on June 24. Featuring the age-old tale of geeks versus bullies, with the themes of LARPing and family values set in the background (along with a kick ass new song from Mastodon, mind you), this video demands your attention this Wednesday afternoon. Besides, do you really think you’ll find anything better to do right now?

On an equally geeky note, the band has also decided to make their new album available through the geekiest currency of today’s day and age: Bitcoin. Yep, you read that right. This metal act will now go down in history as the first ever major label group to go the route of cryptocurrency. Fans are now able to join them in this by purchasing through Mastodon’s BitPay webstore.

If you prefer to buy your music through boring old traditional means, the band is offering pre-orders through their website. Follow the jump to check out this new music video.
