Mastodon track ‘Island’ from 2004’s ‘Leviathan’ will feature in the new Pixar film, Monsters University.
Initial reports last year suggested Mastodon were recording a new song for the film, however this never eventuated.
A press release notes:
Faced with the question of what a sweet monster might listen to during a free moment, filmmakers decided to push the envelope. “There is a great moment in ‘Monsters University’ when we thought it would be funny if the tunes were some of the most intense heavy metal imaginable. Mastodon was the obvious choice. They show off an unexpected monstrous side for one of our great new characters.” They chose an existing song from the group called “Island.”
Monsters University is due to hit Australian screens tomorrow (June 20th).
