If you’re a Game of Thrones viewer, plus a Mastodon fan, perhaps you noticed Mastodon’s Brent Hinds, Bill Kelliher and Brann Dailor appear on Sunday’s (Aug. 27) episode. On the HBO show’s season finale, the three guys played White Walkers. 

This isn’t the first time Dailor, Kelliher and Hinds have appeared on Game of Thrones. During the season five episode "Hardhome," the guys portrayed wildlings who were murdered and reanimated as White Walkers.  

In non-Game of Thrones Mastodon news, the group has dropped details on Cold Dark Place, a new EP from the crew. The four-track set will arrive Sept. 22 on CD and digitally and will also come out as a vinyl picture disc Oct. 27. The Atlanta band will preview Cold Dark Place this Friday (Sept. 1) with a new single, "Toe to Toes." 

Want to see the guys on the road? Mastodon will hit the road on a headlining tour to promote Cold Dark Place and their newest full-length studio album, Emperor of Sand, starting Sept. 26 in Orlando, Florida.
