It seems Mr. Brent Hinds has been busy lately. He’s putting out albums by Fiend Without a Face and West End Motel as well as working on new Mastodon material and now it has been announced that he is forming a supergroup with Ben Weinman of The Dillinger Escape Plan, Thomas Pridgen of The Mars Volta and Eric Avery who is ex-Jane’s Addiction. Wow. That’s one hell of a collective. This should be a beast of a project. Unfortunately, the band has yet to even come up with a name let alone premier demoed material, but still, it’s exciting. Hinds has stated “We want to record crazy stuff and Ben is working on that, but it’s been hard to get together.” and he also seems to be leaning towards the name Giraffe Tongue “because they look sick.” Interesting.
Thanks to Metal Injection for the tip.
