MASTODON‘s Brent Hinds, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN guitarist Ben Weinman, former MARS VOLTA drummer Thomas Pridgen and ex-JANE’S ADDICTION bassist Eric Avery have joined forces in a new project called G.T.O. (GIRAFFE TONGUE ORCHESTRA). Weinman states, “Brent and I have already got new material. The guy just spits out riffs like a riff machine. [We have a] day off tomorrow [during the ongoing MASTODON/THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN tour] in Colorado and we shall be working all day on sweet, sweet melodies sure to make the young girls cry and the old ones scream (not necessarily in that order).”
