I just got home from NAMM and after talking with the Mastodon guys, they confirmed that they WILL be at Coachella this year, and that they will be playing on Saturday.

They weren't allowed to say anymore about the lineup though.

I'm totally fucking excited.
Mastodon kicks ass.

It is completely true, they promised.

I told them that I have missed them on every other tour, and they promised that they would be playing Coachella this year.

For some reason, I don't think Monklish is so full of bullshit.

Hell yeah....I was hoping they would play in 2008.... Ive seen them 3 times I believe... 1st time was really excellent, 2nd time was boring, 3rd time was better.... Ill def watch a 50min set by them, hopefully they play Blood and Thunder this time.

Not messing with you. I have a signed Blood Mountain and Remission to prove it. I also have pictures. You're getting Mastodon.

I love all of their records but I will be very happy if I get to hear Blood and Thunder and Hearts Alive.

and also Colony of Birchmen :)

No gamble invovled, and it's not a threat. I just hate, hate, HATE mosh pits, and I always seem to find myself on the edge of one.

Do your thing homie, have fun. Just know that if anyone in any most pit so much as touches me, they will get layed the fuck out.

I like the idea of a good metal band like Opeth/Mastodon/Meshuggah playing Coachella, but honestly, we should know already from when Tool played in 06, metal kids are such an eyesore at indie music fests, especially when they hang around Sahara tent trying to break into a dance for the first time in their lives. :)

And come to think of it, I'd rather it'd be Opeth.

I talked to Mikael Akerfeldt today as well. He was with PRS Guitars. I was so surprised he was there, I ended up talking to him about a bunch of other shit. I completely forgot to ask him if Opeth would be playing Coachella. I do know though that their new tour starts in April. So maybe.

How come whenever a mosh pit is talked about, everyone thinks there a bad ass. I have been in many pits in my concert tenure and no matter how tough you think you are you will get laid out just as easy. Don't say stupid comments like this, it makes you look like an idiot.

In 07 I had tickets to their Wiltern show the day after Coachella.
I came home from Coachella, so fucking sick, and decided not to go.

Then, I had my Vegoose tickets and my plane ticket all ready to go.
I then get a fucking ticket and had to sell my Vegoose tickets to pay for the damn ticket. Fuck the police.

So now that they are playing Coachella this year, I am extremely fucking excited. Hopefully we get Trainwreck :)

Yeah I see that. For me Mastodon are just absurdly brutal but don't fall into like, Pig Destroyer territory. What interests me is the fact that even with the polyrhythm wall of noise playing they still keep a melody prominent.
