Did DEP frontman Greg Puciato just let a cat out of the bag? Perhaps. We’ll have to stay tuned :)
Doro here - I got this video of “Creature Lives” last night at Missing Link fest! All the members of the bands on the bill, Troy and Brent’s family members, William DuVall of Alice in Chains, and Laura Pleasants from Kylesa came out to sing the chorus. Also, BALLOONS!
Hey MastoDudes and MastoDudettes, Doro here. If you are going to be attending the Missing Link show at the Tabernacle in Atlanta tomorrow, “like” or reblog this post! I would like to meet up with some of our site followers, just to hang out, have a good time, and get some solid feedback about the site (if you want to do such a thing).
I will be the chubby red-head in the Remission T-shirt and maybe with a leather jacket. After the show, there is an afterparty at Elmyr. Mastodon and potentially members of DEP, Red Fang, and other bands on the bill will be there and I’ll be there, too. Come on out and join the fun!
Why yes, Brent and Ben Weinman are comparing beer guts in the mirror.
In Brent’s own words: “If it’s a boy, we’re calling it Ham. If it’s a girl, we’re calling it Cheese Fries!”
The official trailer for the Missing Link fest in Atlanta on December 2nd!
The official poster for the HUGE Missing Link show in Atlanta! There are six confirmed bands for the bill (Atlanta-based bands are starred):
Dillinger Escape Plan
Really excited that local alt/punk act Black Lips have been added to the bill. All six of these bands are deliciously good, although I can say straight-up that DEP are going to stick out like a sore thumb at this gig.
Garage rockers Tiger! Tiger! feature Brann’s wife Susanne on bass, and the retro stoner metal act MonstrO is the new band that Troy’s brother Kyle is slinging bass for. Clicking the names of both bands will lead you to their respective Facebook pages, so go check out their music :)
If you live anywhere within 200 miles of Atlanta, you have no excuse to NOT attend this show. Tickets are $42, and considering that you’re getting six bands on a bill, that’s more than your money’s worth. Don’t miss out on this; you’ll regret it! You’ve got five weeks to figure out transportation and to notify your boss that you’ll be gone. Just go! Buy tickets HERE!
I’m going to be there covering the whole damn thing for those of you who don’t make it, and there might be some exclusive content and other goodies that I’ll bring back for everyone. Stay tuned!
Fuck Yeah Mastodon wants your pictures and your footage from any of Mastodon’s upcoming tour dates!!!
Whether it’s live photos, pictures of you with the band, video, or even interviews, we want them! Submit any and all content here:
Or you can just upload it to your blog, tag it as “mastodon”, and we will re-blog you :)
