Dear sweet lord, this news is exciting. Mastodon‘s Brent Hinds has told Noisecreep that he’s in an as of yet unnamed side project with The Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman, former The Mars Volta drummer Thomas Pridgen and ex-Jane’s Addiction bassist Eric Avery. This can be nothing short of awesome.
Given that the members have scheduling conflicts and other important projects going on (Brent’s busy promoting two other side projects, Mastodon have their new album The Hunter coming out this year, and Dillinger are touring quite extensively), it might be a while before we get to hear anything at all. At any rate, I’ll be looking out for this particular supergroup.
Nothing else is new at the moment, but I figured I might as well tuck in a live video for “Horse Hunter,” a song from Dillinger’s 2007 album Ire Works featuring Brent Hinds doing guest vocals. The new project might sound absolutely nothing like this song, but you’re not stopping me from hoping.
