Mastodon's Brann Dailor Struggles With Double Duty

(Prog) Mastodon's Brann Dailor admits to sometimes wishing he only played drums, instead of singing as well. He occasionally finds double-duties a struggle - especially if he's not at full health.

The band are currently touring in support of sixth album Once More 'Round The Sun, launched last year. Dailor tells The Aquarian: "I need everything to be perfect with my health because I have to belt out my notes. They're really high notes and you can't belt strong if you're playing too hard.

"When your body is playing so hard it's basically like sitting on an exercise machine. So if you try to go soft with it, you'll hear like you're beating on your chest when you're singing. You really have to go for it."

He continues: "I want it to sound like it sounds on the record, so I'll push myself as hard as I possibly can. I've blown my voice out and then I have to go apologise to each and every person after the show - let them know how sorry I am about that one part." Read more here.
