Bay Area Backstage conducted an interview with drummer Brann Dailor of Atlanta progressive metallers MASTODON at this year's NAMM (National Association Of Music Merchants) show, a massive music-products convention that took place January 24-27 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. You can now watch the chat below.MASTODON recently revealed that it was writing and recording a song for the upcoming animated film "Monsters University". Due out June 21, "Monsters University" is the prequel to 2001's "Monsters, Inc." Billy Crystal and John Goodman reprise their roles in the prequel as the wise-cracking Mike Wazowski and lovable Sulley. MASTODON contributed several original songs to the score to the 2010 motion picture "Jonah Hex" as a collaboration with Oscar-nominated composer Mario Beltrami ("The Hurt Locker", "3:10 to Yuma"). MASTODON was asked to create the score personally by the film's director, Jimmy Hayward, who was inspired by repeated listenings of MASTODON's 2006 album, "Blood Mountain". MASTODON's latest album, "The Hunter", came out in September 2011 through Reprise Records.
