MASTODON is rumored to be one of the scheduled performers at the finals of the U.S. Open Snowboarding Championships at Stratton Mountain in Vermont.
The 26th annual competition bills itself as "the Most Righteous Snowboarding Battle of the Ages," according to The Associated Press. It includes under-the-tent jousting demonstrations and features halfpipe, slopestyle and big air events.
This year, NBC will televise the finals, on tape delay, on Sunday, March 23.
When asked to confirm the reports that MASTODON will participate in the event, a band representative would only tell BLABBERMOUTH.NET, "We are not at liberty to discuss."
As previously reported, MASTODON's cover version of the THREE DOG NIGHT track "One" is currently being used in the ad campaign for the multiplatform videogame "Army of Two".
MASTODON is tentatively scheduled to enter the studio in the spring to begin recording its follow-up to 2006's "Blood Mountain". A late 2008 release via Warner Bros. Records is expected.
