This Friday (31) Mastodon’s new album Emperor of Sand comes out, and we have been looking forward to it. We listened to new songs including “Sultan’s Curse,” “Andromeda,” and the band’s close brush with death in their “Show Yourself” music video. And while Brent Hinds’ might still think Judas Priest aren’t metal, we believe Mastodon are, and Emperor of Sand should be massive.
Speaking of sizes, in a new interview, Mastodon reflected on an old bathroom story involving a size comparison while on the road with Philip Anselmo. Killswitch Engage’s Jesse Leach spoke with Bill Kelliher and Troy Sanders on the Talkhouse podcast initially to discuss the new album. However, around 13:45 seconds in, Kelliher and Sanders reflected on an old urinal story with Anselmo. Kelliher stated:
“Phil Anselmo, guy is a fucking genius, so funny. He Should be a comedian, not kidding. He was in the bathroom with Troy one time, they were both taking a leak next to each other. He’s like, ‘Hey buddy, check out my new tattoo.’ Troy looks over and he’s just holding his fucking dick. [laughs] So stupid! And then what does he do?”
Sanders chimed in:
“I was peeing later in that afternoon and he comes creeping up behind me and his head just comes around my waist, just his head, right by my penis, and he says, ‘Your shit’s a lil’ bigger than medium,’ and backs away and leaves. Why was he trying to flatter me? Why would you do that? Good times.”
Kelliher added “I think he likes you.”
