Taste a Little GIRAFFE TONGUE ORCHESTRA

Earlier this week we posted about how Giraffe Tongue Orchestra were back in the studio. The supergroup that features Ben Weinman of The Dillinger Escape Plan, Mastodon guitarist/vocalist Brent Hinds, and Queens of the Stone Age drummer Jon Theodore (One Day As A Lion, ex-The Mars Volta) have been recording with Steve Evetts, and it appears that some new folks are involved.

By the looks of Ben’s Instagram, GTO have brought in bassist Pete Griffin (Dethklok) and actress/musician Juliette Lewis to lend their talents.

Here’s a clip of Griffin recording bass in the studio.

It’s a hot spring day outside Chain Reaction in Anaheim and The Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman is talking crazy things he’s seen on tour. From fans drinking bottles of spit for vinyl records to hippies having sex onstage at festivals, Weinman’s tales are wild and extreme.
