Remember Mastodon’s contribution to Aqua Teen Hunger Force’s movie? Well, those wishing to see the band interact more with with Master Shake, Frylock, and Meatwad may be in luck, as bassist/vocalist Troy Sanders revealed that Mastodon will be featured in an upcoming episode of the Adult Swim cartoon show (now called Aqua Unit Patrol Squad 1).
When asked in an interview with myYearbook whether Mastodon would be doing working on similar projects like the Aqua Teen movie intro, Sanders said the following:
“Yes, we’re actually going to be involved in an upcoming Aqua Teen Hunger Force episode. That’s always fun to do, it’s always a unique opportunity to go in and do music and voice-overs. It’s such a fun way to do something that is Mastodon-ish but also unexpected. We’re very fortunate that the Adult Swim family has embraced Mastodon and has tried to include us on many things. We hope to have more opportunities like that because it’s such a great experience.”
Indeed this isn’t the first time Mastodon have worked with Adult Swim. In addition to the movie introduction, Mastodon have teamed up with the raunchy cartoon network to not only give away a free download of a b-side, but also to film a hysterical video for said song. This also wouldn’t be the first time metal elite have appeared on Aqua Teen, as Glenn Danzig and Zakk Wylde each have made appearances. No word yet, though, on whether the members of Mastodon will appear on the show as themselves or voice new characters.
