MESHUGGAH's Tomas Haake & Orange is the New Black's Jessica Pimentel Have a New Band
Meshuggah drummer Tomas Haake and Orange is the New Black actress (and Alekhine's Gun vocalist) Jessica Pimentel are working on a new project together. Pimentel recently told the Behind The Vinyl that her and her fiancé Haake will release the project on Bandcamp and won't tell anyone what it's called.
"We have been wanting to jam for a long time. It's, like, you know the 'meeting your heroes' situation?" said Pimentel. "We are both, like, 'God, I love the way you play. It sounds really great.' 'Oh, I love the way… You wanna jam?' 'Yeah. Yeah.' 'Eh, tomorrow.'
"It's kind of just been the two of us for the last two months here, so we both really need to play, and so we're gonna do some of that. We also have the honor and luxury of having some nice, new Korg keyboards here, so maybe what we jam out might not be metal at all. He's actually picking up the wires for that right now — all the cables that we need — and we'll see what comes out. We already have our anonymous band name to release stuff on Bandcamp. We're not gonna tell you what it is, you're not gonna know what it is, but it will be out there."
I'd say we'll keep you updated on the project, but I'm not sure we'll be able to.
