Mastodon recently released an animated video for “Clandestiny,” a track from their 2017 album Emperor Of Sand. The dark, dystopian video was directed, produced, animated and edited by Ariel Costa, who’s also made videos for Led Zeppelin and Green Day. The band’s latest release came in the form of last year’s four-song EP, Cold Dark Place, which compiled previously unreleased tracks and songs from the Emperor of Sand sessions.
As for Dinosaur Jr., they just put out a new single, “Hold Unknown,” in February for Adult Swim’s Singles Program. The single was the band’s first new music since 2016’s Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not.
