Mastodon: New Video


To create the video for their new single "Dry Bone Valley," Atlanta rock icons Mastodon have teamed up with noted fine artist Tim Biskup, a long-time friend who has amassed a cadre of loyal fans and collectors of his painting and sculpture, which boast complex color and design theories and a decidedly populist aesthetic. This collaboration with Mastodon marks Biskup's first foray into film/video work in nearly six years.

The "Dry Bone Valley" video is "basically about waking up to find yourself being chased by death and having to reckon with dying and what that actually means to you," Biskup explains. "It's a life/death metaphor where the girl in the video goes from hunted to hunter. There's a whole lot more going on metaphorically, and the symbolism goes very deep and is very specific, but I'll leave the rest up to interpretation." Watch the new video below.

Mastodon and Talenthouse are giving fans a chance to design a "Dry Bone Valley" banner that will be featured on and for a month. The winner will also receive a $1,000 prize, while two runners-up will get $500 and be featured in the band's photo gallery as well. The designs will be chosen by fan votes, Mastodon, and Tim Biskup.

"Dry Bone Valley" is the second single from Mastodon's critically acclaimed album The Hunter. At present Mastodon are immersed in an extensive tour of Europe and Australia, which culminates in an appearance at the Soundwave Festival in March. The band is expected to tour the U.S. again this spring. Tour dates will be announced shortly.
