Mastodon Writing Music For New 'Monsters Inc' Movie
Mastodon are reportedly writing music to be included in the sequel to "Monsters Inc." The US heavy metal band revealed that they will be writing one song for "Monsters University", due for release in Summer 2013, on their official Facebook page before quickly removing the update. "Monsters University" is due to come out in June next year and will be a prequel, set 10 years before the original title. The film promises to investigate the relationship between Sulley (John Goodman) and Mike (Billy Crystal), and show viewers inside their life as they attend university. Mastodon released their fifth studio album "The Hunter" in 2011. Speaking to NME about the album, the band said that they had consciously tried to make a simpler record, saying: "Ordinarily, we would spend a lot of time making life difficult for ourselves in the studio. But this time round, because there was so much stuff going on outside the band, it became difficult for us to pile on the pressure in the studio." As we recently reported, band's singer-guitarist Brent Hinds revealed that Mastodon are working on "Radioheadish" sounds on next album. Thanks for the report to NME.com.
