Mastodon Go Interactive
Recorded in their hometown of Atlanta, GA with producer Brendan O'Brien ( AC/DC, Pearl Jam), "Crack The Skye" takes you on an epic journey from start to finish. One that involves astral travel, wormholes, and even Rasputinů
Mastodon will also unveil a new online destination designed to bring fans into direct focus on the upcoming new album, Crack The Skye. http://www.cracktheskye.org will launch the week of Feb 16, and will compliment its existing sibling location of http://www.mastodonrocks.com
The new site will be a flash-based, interactive experience threading fans through an extremely visual, user-controlled cyber journey into the inner sanctum of Crack The Skye. Content will be thematically based on the album's concepts, artwork, images, lyrics, videos, and its unique packaging through engaging visuals and music from Crack The Skye intended to accompany and enhance the experience of listening to the album in its entirety.
As previously announced, Mastodon will tour Europe with Metallica this summer. In addition, they have been invited to perform as part of the Sonisphere Touring Rock Festival this summer in Europe and the UK with Metallica, Linkin Park, Lamb of God and more.
