Atlanta metal heroes Mastodon stopped by Late Show with David Letterman for a performance of “The Motherload” last night. While the video for the Once More ‘Round the Sun track featured a bevy of big booty babes bouncing their bodacious backsides, the highlight of last night’s performance was guitarist Brent Hinds’ giant faux afro. Catch the replay below.
That aforementioned video spurred some controversy online, with some publications deeming it “sexist,” though both the band and at least one of the dancers have defended the clip. On Record Store Day Black Friday (November 28th), they band will release the single on a gorgeous 12-inch picture disc backsided with an instrumental version of “Halloween”.
