Mastodon Release 'Asleep In The Deep' Video (A Top Story)

On Monday Mastodon Release 'Asleep In The Deep' Video was a top story. Here is the recap: (hennemusic) Mastodon are premiering the video for "Asleep In The Deep", the latest single from their 2014 album, "Once More 'Round The Sun." Directed by Video Rahim and co-directed by special effects guru Shane Morton and Oakland, CA-based artist Skinner, the clip tells the psychedelic journey of a house cat who unknowingly travels into a bizarre gypsy catacomb where it encounters a giant bullfrog, a three-headed evil rat king, cat gnomes, cheese slaves and a warrior squirrel.

"This concept was birthed out of my curiosity about what a cat really does at night while we are asleep," explains Skinner. "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 recently wrapped up a North American tour with Clutch and are currently playing dates in Europe, where they'll perform throughout the summer. Watch the new video - here.
