Video footage of MASTODON's first-ever performance of "Crack The Skye", shot on February 28, 2009 at the Scion Rock Fest at The Masquerade in Atlanta, Georgia, can be viewed below. The band was joined for the performance by Scott Kelly, one of three founding members of long-running Oakland, California-based industrial/alternative/metal pioneers NEUROSIS.

NEUROSIS will stage the European version of its "Beyond The Pale" event on Saturday, April 25 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, Holland as part of the Roadburn festival.

NEUROSIS' latest album, entitled "Given to the Rising", was released in June 2007.

MASTODON will embark on a spring U.S. headlining tour in support of its second album for Reprise Records, "Crack The Skye". The band will perform the LP in its entirety along with career-spanning surprises and plenty of visual stimulus in store. This first tour behind the groundbreaking new album will sweep across the U.S. and Canada, playing to smaller theaters and clubs to insure a maximum and up-close intimate environment in which to be exposed to brand new songs and old favorites for MASTODON fans. Support on the trek will come from KYLESA and INTRONAUT.
