Mastodon, a progressive, hard rock band hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, combines innovative styling with old school, hard rock influences. In 2001, Mastodon released their first EP titled, Lifesblood. Since then, they have gone on to produce four, full-length albums containing such hits as "March of the Fire Ants" and "Blood and Thunder." Their music has been featured on both Tony Hawk's Underground and AdultSwim. The band's ingenuity rose to new heights with the release of their album titled Crack the Skye.
Mastodon's fifth, full-length album, The Hunter, will be released in the fall of 2011. After its release, the band will tour the US to promote the album.
