During Mastodon’s Friday night (4/28) show, the band’s Brent Hinds decided to give the audience an unexpected encore, proposing to his girlfriend, Raísa, in front an audience of Birmingham, AL fans.

Hinds, a Birmingham area native, had his grandmother along for the ride. In fact, she was on-stage during the proposal, and Hinds even brought her out to dance during Mastodon’s performance of “Ancient Kingdom.”

Before releasing Emperor of Sand, the band detailed the album, explaining that this one would be an emotional one, for sure. Especially after Friday night’s show, it looks like the rockers are into showing a softer side these days!
