If you thought LARPing (that’s “Live Action Roleplaying”) was merely for dweebs, then you haven’t LARPED Mastodon-style. In the video for new single “High Road”, we follow one scrawny young boy as he trains, via Rocky-esque montages, in order to join his fellow knights and goblins on the glorious battlefield (read: the local park). They may be fighting with plastic weapons, but the soaring metal soundtrack makes this throw-down even more gnarly than last week’s episode of Game of Thrones. Slap on your +5 armor, un-sheath your broadsword, and watch it below:

“High Road” is off the band’s sixth studio album, Once More Round the Sun, due out June 24th via Reprise Records. For more sounds, check out “Chimes at Midnight”.

Pre-orders for the album are now ongoing; in addition to accepting standard currency, the band’s allowing people to pay with Bitcoin. What’s the policy on Coinye?
