The clip was shot on August 12 with director Jonathan Rej (FURTHER SEEMS FOREVER, STRETCH ARMSTRONG), who worked with the band on the video for "Blood and Thunder" from 2004's "Leviathan".

MASTODON has dates scheduled through October 7 in Atlanta; THE BRONX and CONVERGE will open the gigs. Then, the band will take off for a month (guitarist Bill Kelliher's got a baby on the way) before heading to Europe for a headlining run there, according to MTV.com. The group's drummer, Bränn Dailor, said MASTODON will be touring the States again in early 2007, with plans to stay on the road for much of the year.
