Mastodon To Release "Jonah Hex" Songs As EP

Following the June 18th opening of the film "Jonah Hex," Reprise Records will release a 6 track EP from Mastodon from the film’s original motion picture score on June 29th, 2010.

"Jonah Hex" features an original score by Reprise recording artists Mastodon and Oscar-nominated composer Mario Beltrami (The Hurt Locker, 3:10 to Yuma). Mastodon were asked to create the score personally by the film’s director, Jimmy Hayward who was inspired by repeated listenings of Mastodon’s 2006 album "Blood Mountain." "Jimmy called us out of the blue as a fan,” bassist Troy Sanders told Paste magazine in an interview. "It was the most beautiful, authentic way to collaborate."

Fans will get a chance to hear these new tracks:

Death March (film version)
Clayton Boys (film version)
Indian Theme (film version)
Train Assault (film version)
Death March (alternate version)
Clayton Boys (alternate version)
