THE NEW MASTODON/DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN PROJECT HAS SOME INTERESTING GUEST FEATURES

THE NEW MASTODON/DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN PROJECT HAS SOME INTERESTING GUEST FEATURES

  Three years ago, which is practically centuries internet years, Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds, Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman, The Mars Volta drummer Thomas Pridgen, and former Jane’s Addiction bassist Eric Avery all joined forces to form a new supergroup: Giraffe Tongue Orchestra. It was announced way back in November of 2011, and the group hasn’t announced anything since their original announcement. Most people had forgotten about the group, until now.


Today (December 16th 2014), Ben Weinman posted some interesting pictures to instagram, showing a potential collab going on for the Giraffe Tongue Orchestra project. The pictures feature Juliette Lewis, who you may know from Natural Born Killers, Christmas Vacation, or Cape Fear.


Here are the instagram pics:

Why would the new supergroup bring in an actor, you may be asking? Well, she also sings apparently, and pretty damn well.


Here’s a video of her singing:


The other thing to bring attention to is the GTO hashtag on both pictures, so it’s pretty safe to say that this is just a teaser for Giraffe Tongue Orchestra. Get hyped, because it’ll be awesome!
