MASTODON Is Thrilled To Be Touring With TOOL

Drummer Brann Dailor of Atlanta progressive hard rockers MASTODON has told AOL Music that the band is thrilled to play support for TOOL during the latter group's European headlining tour.

"I love TOOL," Dailor told AOL Music. "They're one of the only bands that's been able to be a gigantic rock band selling millions of records [while keeping] their integrity 100 percent."

Dailor says as a musician, he's found himself inspired by the faceless motif TOOL have created over the years. "Right from the get-go they were able to call the shots," he noted. "Label people will tell you, you have to be in the video, you have to do interviews, you have to be in the press. They kind of dropped out of that whole thing and created this whole mystique. Nobody knew what they looked like for 10 years."
