MASTODON: Illness Forces Milwaukee Concert Cancellation

MASTODON was forced to cancel its appearance at The Rave in Milwalkee, WI Thursday night (May 10) after guitarist/vocalist Brent Hinds was taken ill. A very observant BLABBERMOUTH.NET visitor by the name of Bob — who first brought this cancellation to our attention — commented, "Their merchandise salesperson, however, did not suffer illness and had no problem with selling schwag from a missing band."

A 23-minute video interview with MASTODON, conducted recently by David Farrier of New Zealand's of TV3, has been posted online at this location.

MASTODON and AGAINST ME! kicked off their tour on May 1 at Los Angeles' Wiltern LG. Each night on the trek, there will be a raffle to give away an Epiphone guitar signed by both bands at the end of the show. Just fill out the raffle form that will be in the merch area of the venue — make sure to fill it out completely — and the winner will be announced immediately after MASTODON's set. Must be present to win.

MASTODON is touring behind its critically acclaimed current album "Blood Mountain", which includes the No. 1 metal and Grammy-nominated single "Colony of Birchmen". The band was recently tapped as a "Discover & Download" artist on MTV.
