A six-minute video clip containing an interview with MASTODON drummer Brann Dailor, along with performance footage from the band's concert at the Super Bock Super Rock festival in Lisbon, Portugal in June 2007 can be viewed below (courtesy of Portuguese portal LxJovem's "Liga-te a Lisboa").Brann Dailor and fellow MASTODON bandmember Bill Kelliher were scheduled to appear yesterday (Saturday, November 3) at the Percussive Arts Society International Convention (PASIC) at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio. They were expected to perform as part of Dailor's drum clinic. While at the MTV Video Music Awards in early September, MASTODON told MTV News that they wrote their best song ever — even though it's not quite finished yet — while on the way to the big show. "It's pretty much the best record we've yet to write," guitarist Bill Kelliher said before singing a couple of the riffs with fellow guitarist Brent Hinds. "That's how it goes — du-duh-du-duh na-nah-nah. We wrote it in the car on the way over here, at least the intro of it. Part one. We're at the really beginning stages. It's going to be awesome, though. Everything we do is amazing." MASTODON singer/guitarist Brent Hinds was jumped following the band's performance at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards. Police claim Hinds was attacked outside the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on September 10 during an encounter with SYSTEM OF A DOWN bassist Shavo Odadjian and his friend William Hudson. According to police, Hudson assaulted Hinds, and Odadjian witnessed the incident.
