Mastodon have released the music video for "Asleep in the Deep," a cut from the band's 2014 album, Once More Around the Sun. The vid centers on the journey of a cat, which wanders from home and is lured into a strange and hellish world.

"This concept was birthed out of my curiosity about what a cat really does at night while we are asleep," Skinner, co-director of the visual, says in a statement.

"Where do they go? Cats have a very mysterious myth to them and I thought it would be cool to explore that, as little nocturnal heroes. I decided to put a sort of Joseph Campbell hero myth spin on it and add some Jodorowsky psychedelia as well. I'm more than excited about the way it came out! I love it!"

To mark the release, Mastodon has unveiled a "Asleep in the Deep" web package, featuring a t-shirt and poster with art by Skinner.
