Atlanta-based heavy metal group, Mastadon have released the video for their latest single ‘Asleep In The Deep’.
This latest single comes from the band’s last album, Once More ‘Round The Sun, which was released in June of last year. The video follows a house cat on a big journey after leaving its owner sleeping on a couch, where the feline travels through a bizarre neon-lit, puppet infested land.
Special effects guru and co-director, Skinner, said of the video: “This concept was birthed out of my curiosity about what a cat really does at night while we are asleep. Where do they go? Cats have a very mysterious myth to them and I thought it would be cool to explore that, as little nocturnal heroes. I decided to put a sort of Joseph Campbell hero myth spin on it and add some Jodorowsky psychedelia as well. I’m more than excited about the way it came out! I love it!”
Mastodon are set to join the likes of Metallica, Bring Me The Horizon and All Time Low at this year’s Reading and Leeds Festivals. Tickets, the full line-up and other information for them can be here.
