Mastodon stream Emperor Of Sand tour recap video

Mastodon are streaming the first part of a video recap of the band's ongoing tour in support of 2017’s “Emperor Of Sand.”

"As we gear up to jump back on the road, we wanted to share a little behind the scenes from our last tour,” says the group. “Our good buddy, Danger Ehren, joined us on the road for a few days to capture the magic! Here's the first clip of Troy talking tour life as he works on his knuckle ball! Stay tuned for more!

“UK and Europe, we’ll see you starting next week!”

The Atlanta rockers return to live action when they open a 5-week tour of the UK and Europe in Belfast, Northern Ireland on January 14.

Promoters for the upcoming European shows will make a donation to three charities in memory of late Mastodon manager Nick John, who passed away from pancreatic cancer last September.

Recorded with producer Brendan O’Brien, “Emperor Of Sand” debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard 200 upon its release, while also earning Mastodon their first Grammy Award when the track, “Sultan’s Curse”, was named the Best Metal Performance Of The Year at the 60th annual ceremony in New York last year.
