mastodon1MASTODON LIVE AT BRIXTON, CAPPED OFF BAND’S WORLD TOUR FOR CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED ALBUM, THE HUNTER

On February 11th, 2012, MASTODON took the stage at London’s O2 Academy in Brixton, capping off the Atlanta-based band’s world tour in support of their critically acclaimed album The Hunter. This sold-out performance was Mastodon’s first show at the legendary Brixton venue. It won’t be their last, as the London audience positively erupted from the opening chords until the final, frenzied encore. Mastodon Live At Brixton will be released on December 9th

In addition to performing “Curl of the Burl,” “Black Tongue,” and “Dry Bone Valley” from The Hunter, the band dug into their catalog, unearthing such scorching tracks as “Colony of Birchmen,” “Capillarian Crest,” and “Iron Tusk.” Rolling Stone Magazine referred to the band’s sonic attack as one that: “Demonstrates how contemporary hard rock can still be made with imagination, precision and a majestic sense of force.”
