Mastodon cancel summer tour dates

Atlanta rockers Mastodon have cancelled their upcoming summer tour dates due to “a personal family matter.”

The band have issued the following statement:

“Mastodon regretfully announce they must cancel their upcoming shows that were to take place from August 7th through September 3rd due to a personal family matter. Mastodon will return to the road in Latin America in Late September. The September 5th show in Iceland has been rescheduled for December 5th.”

The cancelled dates include a variety of festival appearances, headline shows and dates with Metallica in Europe as well as Canada’s Heavy Montreal event.

Mastodon have been on the road in support of their 2014 album, “Once More 'Round The Sun.”

Last month, the group premiered a video for the track "Asleep In The Deep" from the project.

Directed by Video Rahim and co-directed by special effects guru Shane Morton and Oakland, CA-based artist Skinner, the clip tells the psychedelic journey of a house cat who unknowingly travels into a bizarre gypsy catacomb where it encounters a giant bullfrog, a three-headed evil rat king, cat gnomes, cheese slaves and a warrior squirrel.
