Fresh off “Game of Thrones” appearance, Mastodon details new EP, “Cold Dark Place”

ABC/Randy HolmesDid that frozen zombie look familiar?  Members of Mastodon marched in the army of the dead on Sunday’s Game of Thrones. Drummer Brann Dailor and guitarists Bill Kelliher and Brent Hinds portrayed White Walkers during last night’s season seven finale of the HBO fantasy epic.

Dailor, Kelliher and Hinds previously appeared on Game of Thrones in the season five episode “Hardhome,” during which they played wildlings who were killed and then reanimated as White Walkers. How’s that for continuity!

In other Mastodon news, the band has announced the details of Cold Dark Place, which, in addition to describing the current state of Westeros, is the name of a new EP from the Atlanta metallers. The four-track collection will be released on September 22 on CD and digitally, and will be available as a vinyl picture disc on October 27. You’ll get your first preview of Cold Dark Place when the single “Toe to Toes” arrives this Friday, September 1.

Mastodon will kick off a headlining tour in support of Cold Dark Place and their latest full-length effort, Emperor of Sand, September 26 in Orlando, Florida.

Here’s the Cold Dark Place track list:

“North Side Star”
“Blue Walsh”
“Toe to Toes”
