MASTODON are on the verge of securing the support slot on IRON MAIDEN's summer tour in Europe, according to Blabbermouth.net. MASTODON also in talks to play the Roskilde festival, set to take place June 30-July 3 in Roskilde, Denmark. Also scheduled to perform at the festival are BLACK SABBATH, AUDIOSLAVE and GREEN DAY, among others.

MASTODON recently completed work on the second music video from their award-winning album, "Leviathan".

The video, for the song "Blood and Thunder", was shot on location at the Star Bar in the band's hometown of Atlanta, GA. Produced and directed by Jonathan Rej (MAN OR ASTROMAN, FURTHER SEEMS FOREVER, STRETCH ARMSTRONG) for Authority Films, the new MASTODON video is expected to be conceptual in nature, with a "top-secret" treatment and storyline that, "is far-and-away different than most any modern day music video". MASTODON's "Blood and Thunder" is expected to make its world network premiere(s) imminently.

Currently in the midst of a headlining tour of Europe, MASTODON will launch their first U.S. headlining tour of 2005 on March 23 at the House of Blues in New Orleans, LA.
