Brann Dailor Speaks On Mastodon’s New Album Plans & Dave Lombardo Drawing A Penis On His Face


With the decade nearly having come to a close, Rolling Stone recently caught up with Mastodon drummer/vocalist Brann Dailor to discuss the highs and lows of his past ten years. Among some of the more embarrassing moments, he revealed that former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo (now of Suicidal Tendencies, etc.) drew a penis on his face after he had passed out following a show from the ‘Big Four’ (Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth & Anthrax) back in 2011. He said of that:

“[Don’t] pass out at a party that Dave Lombardo from Slayer is at, ’cause he drew a penis on my face with a marker. It was right after the Big Four did a Coachella thing [in 2011], a couple days before we started tracking our album ‘The Hunter‘. And at a party with Lars Ulrich and all those guys, I passed out like a good boy. And I woke up, walked over to my hotel room and I had a penis drawn on my face.”

He also spoke of his future plans, including word on Mastodon‘s initial plans for their next album:

“I’m gonna try to keep my life together and I’m gonna try to keep from mentally collapsing. And I’m gonna try to keep writing music and recording music and pretty much just do what I’ve been doing. Try to write a kickass Mastodon record within the next few months, and it will probably come out in 2020. So I’m hoping for continuation of what’s been going on the last 10 years. More of the same, please. Thank you.”
