mastodon the hunter coverIt’s been a busy summer for Mastodon, who have unveiled their new video for the first single off of The Hunter in the form of “Curl of the Burl.” Sticking to a more concise songwriting form and simple video style, the track breathes atmosphere into a 3:40 explosion while still delivering the iconic Mastodon crunch.

The band has also announced a contest, allowing fans to download the track, record their own guitar and/or drum parts and share them with the band. Mastodon will then pick the best, and, well, I’ll let the website explain the winning (and losing) prizes:

The band will pick the best entry based on originality and skill in a few weeks, and one grand prize winner will get a new MacBook Air notebook, $50 in the Mastodon online merch store, a personal message from the band, and a 1-year pro Soundcloud account. 2 runners up will get $25 in the Mastodon store and a 1-year pro Soundcloud account. One loser will be chosen and will receive an empty bag of chips via US mail.
