We went backstage with Mastodon drummer Brann Dailor at Download Festival Melbourne 2018! Find out what he had to say about his most memorable music festival experiences, what his relationship with Gojira is like, what the first record was that he ever bought with his own money and more!
In the video, Brann recalls getting peed on by a stranger while watching Iron Maiden:
"They just started going into The Trooper, and I feel this warm liquid start to hit the back of my calf. I turn around, and everyone’s bunched up together, and I could just see this little decrepit penis coming out of this guy’s pants and peeing all over my calf. I wanted to start elbowing this guy, but I couldn’t move my arms, so I just said fuck it and I started enjoying Iron Maiden’s The Trooper."
Brann also went on to share his throughts on Gojira, who Mastodon always seems to be touring with whenever they come to Australia!
"We just are good friends and we enjoy riffage. We like whales, so there's that. We both are really into whale metal, and we play each play a particular form of whale metal. The guys are cool, they like to drink wine and eat baguettes, and they all wear black and white striped shirts with red hankerchiefs backstage, and they're very French."
