Mastodon’s “High Road” Video is the Geekiest Thing Ever, and I Love It


You thought Protest the Hero’s video for “Clarity” was geeky? HA! Mastodon’s new clip for the song “High Road” is so geeky that high school jocks are already giving it atomic wedgies and swirlies — in fact, the reason we didn’t post about it yesterday, when it was initially released, is because it was trapped inside its locker, and we didn’t hear it pleading for help. LARPing and even non-LA RPing are two of the rare dork activities in which even I never particpated, but it’s hard not to love this video… everything detail is so dead-on. It also has an honest-to-Christ narrative, so make sure you watch it all the way through.

“High Road” will appear on Mastodon’s new album, Once More ‘Round the Sun, which comes out June 24. You can buy it with BitCointhe “Tamagotchi of currency,” the “currency of choice for heroin dealers and assassins,” THE CURRENCY OF THE FUTURE!!!
