MASTODON's video for the song "The Wolf is Loose" has been posted online at this location. The track comes off the Atlanta band's forthcoming album, "Blood Mountain", due on September 12 via Warner Bros. Records.
The "The Wolf is Loose" video 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".
"For 'Wolf', it's going to be a Savannah ghost story," MASTODON drummer Bränn Dailor explained to MTV.com. "Savannah is the most haunted city in America, and we were thinking ghosts in the forest, and ghosts being chased, and we gave Jonathan that and he kind of ran with it. He came up with this whole story, and it's going to be shot in black and white. We're ghosts in it, and different body parts of ours will be disappearing and falling off."
MASTODON will launch a tour in support of the album on September 6 in Baltimore, with 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. Dailor said MASTODON will be touring the States again in early 2007, with plans to stay on the road for much of the year.
