Prior to Mastodon's successful European tour opening for Tool earlier this month, the band stopped over in New York City to give a strong performance on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, whose guest star was Kazakh movie star Borat (Photo: http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/page/news/Mastodon_Meet_Borat#39695).

Also check out a stream of the performance at http://streamos.wmg.com/wmedia/wea/a/b/c/vid/wbr/273714_11022006_01_300.wvx. The band returns from Europe in December and begins their headlining tour in January. Mastodon's single "Colony of Birchmen" is currently in regular rotation on Fuse Television's Uranium. And be sure to tune into MTV2's Headbangers' Ball this Saturday, November 18th, for the video premiere of "Colony of Birchmen."

Radio's response to "Colony of Birchmen" has been rapturous. Mastodon has been #1 at Metal Radio as they enter into Active Rock programming. The band is also firmly at #1 on CMJ's Loud Rock college chart.
