Mastodon’s “High Road” Video Tells The Epic Tale of a LARP Nerd Battling for Supremacy
Mastodon have shared their Karate Kid-meets-Napoleon Dynamite-meets “Game of Thrones” video for “High Road”, a single from their forthcoming album Once More ‘Round the Sun. The video was directed by Roboshobo, and stars a host of experienced LARPers (acolytes of Live Action Role Playing, for those not in the know) engaging in mortal combat with toy swords and pool noodles. Meanwhile, a young nerd seeks glory and honor for his family – but does he have enough experience points to vanquish the bullies and earn the respect of the wizards and orcs? Find out below.
Once More ‘Round the Sun is Mastodon’s follow up to 2011’s The Hunter, and arrives June 24 via Reprise. The band is currently accepting pre-orders for people who want to use Bitcoin (as well as people using regular currency).
