Mastodon + Dillinger Escape Plan + Mars Volta = a supergroup called Giraffe Tongue?

Brent Hinds is everwhere at the moment. If he’s not appearing in adverts for his local eateries then he’s forming supergroups with the kind of names that will blow your bloody doors off.

He’s working with The Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist, Ben Weinman, former Mars Volta drummer, Thomas Pridgen and old Jane’s Addiction bassist, Eric Avery on what will surely be a glammy, proggy, metally supergroup of awesome. YEP.

Talking to Noisecreep, Hinds has 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.”

He wants to call the supergroup Giraffe Tongue. Odd, but why the fuck not? Mastodon are currently recording the follow up to 2009’s Crack The Skye as well. That’s fucking exciting isn’t it!
