Members of Mastodon, Dillinger Escape Plan, Mars Volta, Jane’s Addiction forming new band
A massive new group is in the making…that is, if they can actually find the time to get together.
Brent Hinds of Mastodon spoke to and said that he, ex-Jane’s Addiction bassist Eric Avery, former Mars Volta drummer Thomas Pridgen and Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman are trying to put together an album. But since they all live in different parts of the U.S., getting that album off the ground has been a wee bit slow.
“We tried to get together and do an album, but there’s been no time,” Hinds said. “We want to record crazy stuff and Ben is working on that, but it’s been hard to get together.” The band has no name as of yet but Hinds said he wants to call it Giraffe Tongue simply because “they look sick.”
Meanwhile, Hinds day job, Mastodon, is gearing up to release its newest album which is being called The Hunter later this year. The guitarist also has released two albums simultaneously from two different projects, Fiend Without a Face and West End Motel.
