Posted on by Oran

With the frenzy of excitement following the announcement the MCD will be hosting MASTODON  in the Academy, the big question on everybody’s lips was, who’s supporting them? Well, now you can find out!


Mastodon, announced a headline show at Dublin’s Academy later this year to support the bands sixth album called “Once More ‘Round the sun” which is already gaining critical acclaim around the globe. The Dublin show will mark the bands return to our shores after a much talked about two night stand back in June of 2013 in The Academy.

The support for the November 19th show has been announced as BIG BUSINESS and KROKODIL.

Big Business describe themselves as ” a loud 3-piece rock band from sunny Los Angeles. They tour, make records, and pretty much do whatever they want. But they do it CLASSY.”

Overdrive came across Big Business last year via their latest release “Battlefields Forever” which is a glorious sonic assault on the ears. Packed with heavy sludge Metal riff’s to please the most condescending critic, this is one band that you need in your life.

KROKODIL are somewhat of a super group of musicians who consist of members of Sikth, Cry For Silence, Gallows and Hexes. If that’s not enough for you to get excited about, then check out the link below and let your ears take the front seat on this!

Mastodon’s new album “Once More Around The Sun” is the follow-up to the bands critically acclaimed album The Hunter, which entered the Billboard Top 200 Album chart in the Top 10 and found its way onto several Year End/Best Of critics’ lists, including Rolling Stone, Spin, Revolver, Decibel and many others in the U.S. In the U.K. The Hunter, dominated all “Album Of The Year” charts including Metal Hammer, Kerrang, Terrorizer, Classic Rock, Total Guitar, Trash Hits and Rock Sound Magazines simultaneously.

Tickets for MASTODON, BIG BUSINESS AND KROKODIL are on sale now and have limited availability. This will no doubt sell out faster than you care to believe, so get on it ASAP!
