Mastodon Frontman Unveils Supergroup

Mastodon vocalist/lead guitarist Brent Hinds recently revealed to Noisecreep that he is working on a new project with The Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman, former Jane’s Addiction bassist Eric Avery, and ex-The Mars Volta drummer Thomas Pridgen.

Hinds said that he wants to name the project Giraffe Tongue “because they look sick.” However, the group’s progress has been slow. Hinds explained, “We tried to get together and do an album, but there’s been no time… We want to record crazy stuff and Ben is working on that, but it’s been hard to get together.”

In other Mastodon news, the progressive metallers are currently working on their upcoming album, ‘The Hunter.’ The band is also touring Europe this summer.
