Watch Mastodon Side Project Arcadea's Trippy New Video
Arcadea — the psychedelic, synth-heavy project from Mastodon drummer Brann Dailor, Zruda guitarist Core Atoms and Withered guitarist Raheem Amlani — have teamed up with Revolver to premiere their trippy new music video, "Through the Eye of Pisces." Check it out below.

Atoms says of the clip, “The ice melts on a small planet drifting towards a new sun. An android wakes to find she is the only lifeform on this once bustling planet. Traveling through graveyards of crystal, dust and lifeless automation, her memories replay. Created to service the living, her programming resets and becomes the drive to revive her world.”

The lyrical concept of the album is set five billion years in the future, after a collision of galaxies creates a new order of planets. In a recent interview with Revolver, Dailor said, "That's kind of Core's foray into the prog-osphere of the concept album, and he wanted to be in charge of that. I was more than willing because writing lyrics is hard! It's one of the hardest parts of my job: trying to come up with cool lyrics. It takes forever. I was like, 'I can't write lyrics for this stuff. Come on, man!' He had the whole thing worked out in his head, where he wanted it to go."

The band's self-titled debut is out now via Relapse Records. To pick up a copy, visit Relapse's webstore. For more on Arcadea, follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
