[News] Members of Mastodon, Dillinger Escape Plan, Mars Volta and Janes Addiction Forming New Band
Yes. That title is correct. Stop rubbing your eyes in disbelief, 'cos if what Brent Hinds has been talking about is true our ears are soon to be bleeding to the sound of a new band. Via Noisecreep and our buddy Sami at RiOB, apparently ex-Jane’s Addiction bassist Eric Avery, former Mars Volta drummer Thomas Pridgen and all around guitar shredder from Dillinger Escape Plan Ben Weinman, along with the aforementioned Brent are trying to coordinate putting out an album as a band. Thing is, here in the UK a quick train ride and you can be anywhere the same day but in the states it's a little more spread out and they're finding all being together in the same place to write stuff is pretty tough.
While talking to Noisecreep Brent said that they "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.” Quite frankly I think this sounds awesome, with all of the influences coming together into one colossal wall of noise and awesomeness this is surely to be a sweet release if it ever materialises (please someone make it happen!!). In case you were wondering on what name to keep a look otu for if they do put some material out it's Giraffe Tongue, the reason why? “they look sick” according to Brent. Fair point well made. I think the music will be ridiculously sick though. Keep your eyes peeled!
