Giraffe Tongue Orchestra Supergroup Comprised of Alice In Chains, Mars Volta, And Mastodon Members

williamduvallJust when you couldn’t think that Mastodon members couldn’t pop up in anymore supergroups, it happens again. First with Legends of the Seagullmen, Brent Hinds now finds himself beside Alice in Chains singer William DuVall, Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman, Dethklok bassist Pete Griffin, and former Mars Volta drummer Thomas Pridgen.

Giraffe Tongue Orchestra were working on a full length LP last year. During the earlier sessions, vocals were provided by Juliette Lewis, but ultimately DuVall was chosen for lead vocals. The final LP will still feature some contributions from Lewis.

Weinman in an interview on Riffing With Christina said (via Loudwire), “[Juliette] is actually not our main singer. She guested … Yeah like everybody kinda takes an Instagram picture and makes their own press around it. But me and her have been working on songs, some of which are for Giraffe Tongue, some of which were just jams that we were working on or whatever. And she did some cool vocals on some of the GTO stuff. Actually, William [DuVall] from Alice In Chains is who has been singing with us.

“Most of the music was written before [William] got involved … But everybody is definitely in this band, it’s a real democracy … You know, it’s a little different for me, it’s been great. Because Dillinger has obviously been my baby since the beginning. You know while everyone contributes, it has always been … it was my vision and baby. So with GTO it’s really a combination of all the elements, all the pieces. So it’s really interesting, it’s been great for me to collaborate like that … And I think when you hear it, it really does sound like all of us in one band somehow.”

Weinman didn’t provide a timetable for the albums release, but you better believe that I’ll be eagerly awaiting it. You better believe when new music is dropped, you can find it here.
