"High Road," the lead single from Mastodon's upcoming Once More 'Round The Sun, has just gotten the medieval video treatment.
It's a story of the underdog rising to the top, but this time with a twist: The video's protagonist is a loser among larpers, an underdog among underdogs. With plastic armor, rubber swords, and a training montage that would do Rocky proud, this 90-pound weakling comes back from a brutal defeat and manages to come out victorious. Combine Red Fang's "Prehistoric Dog" video with the battle scene from Role Models, and you'll get pretty much the same result. Check it out above.
Once More 'Round The Sun will be out June 24th on Warner Bros. Records. Pre-order it via Amazon.
