Mastodon share Emperor Of Sand colour-in cover commercial

Mastodon release video showing kids colouring in the cover of Emperor Of Sand - from special pre-order version of band’s 7th album

Mastodon have released a short video showcasing their limited edition Emperor Of Sand colour-in vinyl jacket edition.

The band’s seventh album will launch later this week on March 31, with the special version of the record coming with a colour-in jacket and set of Mastodon coloured pencils.

The commercial shows four children scribbling away under the watchful eye of the Emperor Of Sand, who lends a helping hand by sharpening the kids’ pencils. Watch it below.

Last week, the band released a behind-the-scenes video focusing on guitarist Brent Hinds and his work on the follow-up to 2014’s Once More ‘Round The Sun.

Drummer and vocalist Brann Dailor said: “Brent’s guitar playing is insane – it’s beautiful. He’s got that beauty and he’s got that originality. There’s nobody else like him. You can’t replicate it, you can’t duplicate it – no one can’t touch it.

"His solos are really just amazing on this album. There’s a whole bunch of them and they all sound unique. I think he’s gone above and beyond.”

Mastodon are the cover stars of the new issue of Metal Hammer and also appear in this month’s Classic Rock and Prog magazines – all three titles are out now.

The band will head out on the road from next month across North America. They’ll then return to Europe in June for several dates, including an appearance at the UK’s Download festival.
