According to a posting on MASTODON’s official Twitter profile, the band’s October 17, 2009 concert at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago, Illinois will be recorded for future release. More information will be made available soon.
MASTODON recently confirmed that they are working with composer John Powell and director Jimmy Hayward on the score to “Jonah Hex”, the comic-book Western/horror film starring Josh Brolin in the lead role, with support from John Malkovich, Megan Fox, Will Arnett, Michael Fassbender and Michael Shannon. The movie is based on the DC comic series about a horribly scarred antihero who is “a rough-and-tumble gunslinger and part-time bounty hunter whose adventures always ended in blood.”
MASTODON guitarist/vocalist Brent Hinds makes a cameo appearance in the film, which is being directed by former Pixar animator Jimmy Hayward for a June 18, 2010 release.
