Congrats to Epiphone Signature artist Brent Hinds and his band Mastodon on their GRAMMY nomination for Best Rock Album for their 2017 release, Emperor of Sand. Mastodon are currently on tour throughout Europe and the UK and will wind up their road work for the year with a sold out show on December 10 at the 02 Academy Brixton in London.

Check out Mr. Hinds hysterical interview with Epiphone.com and his charmingly frantic homemade video celebrating the arrival--by post-- of his Ltd. Ed. Brent Hinds Flying V Custom Outfit featuring the historic Flying V profile in a Silverburst finish with Lace® USA Brent Hinds signature Hammer Claws™ Humbuckers and Grover® Rotomatics™ 18:1 ratio machine heads. "Thanks for everything, Epiphone," said Hinds. "I mean it. Thanks for my Flying V. Thanks for thinking of me. I love it. It rocks, man."

Meanwhile in other Mastodon news, Hinds recently posted on Twitter what appears to be tease for a new Mastodon album called Cold Dark Place. But no addition info has been posted. Stay tuned!
