GIRAFFE TONGUE ORCHESTRA Is Back At Writing Tunes
One of the bright sides of stalking your idols on Facebook and Twitter is getting updates directly from the source. For example, if you follow Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman, you have seen this photo of him and Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds getting the ball rolling on their highly anticipated project, Giraffe Tongue Orchestra.
The project also features legendary Jane's Addiction bassist Eric Avery and drummer Jon Theodore, formerly of The Mars Volta. Guess what? According to Brent Hinds Instagram, Mr. Theodore is also in the house.
With at least 3/4ths of the group all in the same space, shit is about to get real! Both Dillinger and Mastodon are pretty much done with their touring cycles so the jamming on this sucker can really begin now. I'm beyond excited to hear the output.
By the way, if you're curious as to how the name was conceived, this video should answer your question!
