Mastodon vocalist/guitarist Brent Hinds recently told Noisecreep that he is working on an as-yet unnamed new project with The Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Benjamin Weinman; former Jane’s Addiction bassist Eric Avery; and ex-The Mars Volta drummer Thomas Pridgen.
Speaking on it, Hinds, who apparently wants to call the group Giraffe Tongue, offered:
“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.”
Mastodon are tentatively set to release their new album “The Hunter” later this year.
