The mastodon – the extinct, distant relative of the elephant – never adapted to life underwater. But the Mastodon of our time – the hard-riffing metal outfit from Atlanta, Georgia – looks well at home beneath the waves.

Teaming up with live-streaming specialists Dreamstage, the Grammy-winning band has announced Captured Live at Georgia Aquarium, a “unique live experience” which will see Brent Hinds and co deliver their first-ever fully acoustic set from the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta on July 15 at 9PM ET.
