Mastodon is the latest rock band to tie in with a coffee manufacturer for its own special blend.
Chicago’s Dark Matter Coffee has teamed up with the Atlanta-based heavy metallurgists for a java concoction called Black Blood, aged in bourbon barrels and limited to 2,000 12 oz. pouches, available now at select retail locations and by mail order through darkmattercoffee.com. The package design for Black Blood utilizes Oakland-based artist Skinner’s dazzling psychedelic artwork for the cover of Mastodon’s latest album Once More ‘Round the Sun, which was released on June 24th. Meanwhile, be sure to catch the band’s performance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday, Sept. 15th.
