Mastodon, The Dillinger Escape Plan and The Mars Volta members form supergroup

The as yet un-named collective are looking to record material together in the future

Mastodon, The Dillinger Escape Plan and The Mars Volta members form supergroup
Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds has revealed that he has formed a new super-group with current and previous members of The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Mars Volta and Jane's Addiction.

In an interview with Noisecreep, Hinds explained that he has joined forces with The Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman, former The Mars Volta drummer Thomas Pridgen and ex-Jane's Addiction bassist Eric Avery.

"We tried to get together and do an album, but there's been no time," Hinds said. "We want to record crazy stuff and Ben is working on that, but its been hard to get together." The collective is currently un-named, but Hinds is hoping the group go with his suggestion - Giraffe Tongue - "because they look sick."

Mastodon recently revealed that their forthcoming album will be entitled 'The Hunter'. The new effort was recorded at Doppler Studios in Atlanta with producer Mike Elizondo and is the follow-up to 2009's 'Crack The Skye'.
