The post was used to promote Hell Bound a new film which features soundtrack contributions from Hinds. Check out the grizzly pics below.

The group recently cancelled a tour with Dinosaur Jr. citing a “critical situation of a member of the Mastodon family.” Members of the group also recently covered Peter Gabriel with Primus and members of TOOL. Watch their video for “Steambreather” below.
