Mastodon will join Orange Goblin, Clutch and Avatar at the 15th Metal Hammer Golden Gods with Orange Amplification - limited number of tickets on sale now

Mastodon will headline this year’s Metal Hammer Golden Gods with Orange Amplification.

Brann Dailor, Brent Hinds, Bill Kelliher and Troy Sanders have just released one of the year’s most critically acclaimed albums in Emperor Of Sand – and now they’ll join Orange Goblin, Clutch and Avatar at the 15th annual event at London’s IndigO2 at The O2 on Monday, June 12, which will be hosted by Fozzy frontman and WWE megastar Chris Jericho.

Metal Hammer editor Merlin Alderslade says: “We told you we had something special planned – and trust us when we say this is going to be very special indeed.

“We wanted to bring something truly one-off to the IndigO2 as a way to say thank you to our amazing readers for the support they’ve shown us this year.

“Mastodon are not just one of the biggest bands we’ve ever had play our awards, but one of the greatest metal bands of this or any era.

“Expect minds to be blown, heads to be banged and beers to be raised. See you down the front.”

A limited number of tickets are now available for just £10 and are being sold on a first come, first served basis. Once they’re gone, they’re gone! Buy them here - but be quick!

Voting is now underway with fans able to register their favourites by visiting the Metal Hammer Golden Gods website. See the full list of nominations below.
