Mastodon’s Brann Dailor on The MetalSucks Podcast #482
This week on The MetalSucks Podcast, we’ve got the one and only Brann Dailor, of Mastodon! Since the band’s upcoming tour with Gojira and Lorna Shore is coming up soon, we get down to business and discuss topics like why they have two legs booked of their upcoming tour. We also chat about the time they had two weeks’ notice for their first post-pandemic show, what went into the decision of performing a majority of songs of their latest album while on tour, and how that setlist conversation occurs with the Mastodon camp.
Dailor also chats about the art of playing the right deep cut for the fans, what he feels is the sweet spot for the length of a concert, what food he wishes he did not see backstage after a show, and how his diet has changed through the years as a touring musician.
Aside from the interview, Petar and Sylvia discuss the tragic events that occurred at the Morbid Angel show in Illinois over the weekend, as well as our thoughts about yet another mass shooting at an American elementary school. They also find the time to talk about the six arena headliners performing at the inaugural Power Trip Festival.
