MASTODON To Contribute New Song To 'Monsters University' Animated Film
Atlanta progressive metallers MASTODON are writing and recording a song for the upcoming animated film "Monsters University".
Due out June 21, 2013, "Monsters University" is the prequel to 2001's "Monsters, Inc." Billy Crystal and John Goodman reprise their roles in the prequel as the wise-cracking Mike Wazowski and lovable Sulley.
MASTODON contributed several original songs to the score to the 2010 motion picture "Jonah Hex" as a collaboration with Oscar-nominated composer Mario Beltrami ("The Hurt Locker", "3:10 to Yuma"). MASTODON was asked to create the score personally by the film's director, Jimmy Hayward, who was inspired by repeated listenings of MASTODON's 2006 album, "Blood Mountain".
MASTODON's latest album, "The Hunter", came out in September 2011 through Reprise Records.
