Mastodon Share THE MAKING OF HUSHED AND GRIM Documentary

Unveiling yet another dimension to their latest chapter, iconic heavy rock band Mastodon, GRAMMY® Award winners, share a full 90-minute documentary titled “THE MAKING OF HUSHED AND GRIM” to be streamed via Loudwire.

It chronicles the creation of their critically acclaimed ninth studio album, HUSHED AND GRIM, which was largely influenced by the untimely death of the band’s longtime friend and manager, Nick John.

Directed by Bryan Bankovich and produced by Newmerica, the film draws the curtain on one of the most enigmatic groups of this era. The Atlanta quartet talk about making their epic HUSHED AND GRIM. The members refer to the “unspoken” pact between them to honor the memory of “group dad” Nick John with the offer of 15 tracks.

The filmmakers followed Mastodon as they put together their first body of work without a Nick to fall back on. For the first time, they not only recorded in their own West End Sound studio and headquarters in Atlanta, but they also endured collective tragedy and a pandemic together.

With producer David Bottrill [Peter Gabriel, Tool] at the helm, the musicians shed every drop of blood, sweat and tears in a definitive anthem to their most devoted champion and biggest fan, with no shortage of twists and turns, as the footage shows. Between the two, “THE MAKING OF HUSHED AND GRIM” intersperses moments of lightness with sketches marked by a very discreet humor and a lot of clowns. It’s humorous, sincere, honest and wholeheartedly HUSHED AND GRIM.

This week, Mastodon hits the road again, accompanying GRAMMY® Award-winning rock band Ghost on their North American tour kicking off at Pechanga Arena in San Diego, Calif., on Friday, August 26. Check out the full confirmed itinerary below. Click here for tour ticket and VIP upgrade details.
