Mastodon will release their first-ever live experience package entitled “Live At The Aragon” on March 15th, 2011 on Reprise Records. The set will contain a CD and DVD recorded and filmed live October 19th, 2009, at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago. The combo set is comprised of “Crack The Skye” performed live in its glorious entirety along with fan favorites from “Blood Mountain” (2006) and “Leviathan” (2004) plus a brutal cover of “The Bit” by Melvins. The DVD will also feature a 58 minute “tour film” that contains the films which were projected on screen, behind the band in performance.
Currently, Mastodon is preparing to record their fifth studio album. “Crack The Skye” was their latest release from 2009, a concept album about astral travel and the last Russian dynasty.
