Mastodon Unveil 'High Road' Video, Accepting Bitcoin for New Album
With the release of their latest album "Once More 'Round the Sun" less than two weeks away, Mastodon have unveiled the video for "High Road" via Loudwire.

Directed by Roboshobo (Green Day, Alice in Chains), the video doesn't feature the band. Instead, their music is the soundtrack as a young nerd faces adversity and humiliation in the world of live action role playing. He trains so he can seek redemption during the climatic epic battle scene featuring foam swords and grown men dressed like wizards.

Meanwhile, Mastodon have also announced they will accept bitcoin as payment for "Once More 'Round the Sun." They have partnered with BitPay to process the payments, with pre-orders for the June 24 release available here.

In a statement, the band says, "We're excited to work with fellow Atlanta-natives BitPay for our new album. We want to give our fans as many options to buy our new album as possible and are happy that bitcoin can be one of those choices."

Mastodon will play the annual Bonnaroo festival on Friday (June 13) and have a string of European festival dates this summer.
