Brent Hinds is a very busy guy as of late. In addition to readying a new album with Mastodon, Hinds also just released a double album of his two side projects. But now it looks like he is attempting to create the motherload of supergroups.
In an exclusive to Noisecreep, Hinds reveals that he’s been working on a new group with The Dillinger Escape Plan’s Ben Weinman, ex-Mars Volta drummer Thomas Pridgen, and ex-Jane’s Addiction bassist Eric Avery. Now THIS is indeed a supergroup. Unfortunately, though, Hinds admit that work on the unnamed project has been moving slowly since they live on opposite ends of the world from each other. In regards to the group (that he wants to name Giraffe Tongue) and its progress, Hinds said the following:
“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.”
Guess we’ll just have to be patient to see this supergroup come to life. We’ll keep you posted if more is revealed about them.
