Mastodon debut ‘The Motherload’ live; band to play full album?

Posted by on June 27, 2014


Now that Once More ‘Round the Sun is out in stores, Mastodon can finally play some more new songs from it. They’ve been playing “High Road” and “Chimes at Midnight,” since both songs have been out there. Earlier tonight in Amsterdam, the band played album highlight “The Motherload” for the first time, and someone was on hand to capture it on crappy-sounding video. Despite that, it still sounds great, and Brann Dailor hits all the notes in a song that requires a lot of him.

Also noted by the YouTube user is that Dailor apparently said after the gig that they would be touring Europe again later this year and playing the album in its entirety. If that’s the case, there’s no reason to think they wouldn’t do that stateside as well.
