Hi, what are you looking for?

Fuck Yes!


We're really excited that things have kicked off for this new side-project featuring Mastodon's Brent Hinds, Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman, former Mars Volta drummer Thomas Pridgen and ex-Jane's Addiction bassist Eric Avery. A few weeks ago Weinman and Avery were jamming in Weinman's basement, and now that Mastodon and Dillinger are touring together, you know some epic collabs are happening. Weinman checked in from the road on the status of the group and (finally!) the name of the new project:

So about G.T.O (Giraffe Tongue Orchestra), Brent and I have already got new material. The guy just spits out riffs like a riff machine. Day off tomorrow in Colorado and we shall be working all day on sweet sweet melodies sure to make the young girls cry and the old one scream (not necessarily in that order).

Giraffe Tongue Orchestra works for me. Rolls off the tongue, doesn't it? I can't even imagine how insane this is going to sound. Who else shares my enthusiasm?
