Mastodon guitarist and face tattoo enthusiast Brent Hinds has unveiled plans to record with a new metal supergroup entitled Giraffe Tongue.
The band includes Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman, former Mars Volta drummer Thomas Pridgen, and former Jane’s Addiction bassist Eric Avery. Hinds hopes that the group can record an album’s worth of material as soon each prospective member’s busy schedule allows.
Hinds spoke about the project:
“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.”
Recently, Hinds lent his acting talent to a local burrito restaurant and filmed a funny commercial for the spot. Check it out here!
