The Dillinger Escape Plan Guitarist Comments on Mastodon/Jane’s Addiction/Mars Volta Project & Collaboration with Thursday’s Geoff Rickly

The Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman has issued an update on two of his side projects: an unnamed collaboration with Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds, former Jane’s Addiction bassist Eric Avery, and ex-The Mars Volta drummer Thomas Pridgen, and an additional project with Thursday vocalist Geoff Rickly.

“[Avery] and I plan on locking ourselves in my studio for days without food or sunlight,” says Weinman on the Mastodon/ex-Jane’s Addiction/ex-Mars Volta project. “I can’t believe the guy who wrote the ‘Mountain Song’ bass line is gonna be sleeping on my floor. I’m sure [Hinds] and I will have some pretty serious sessions on tour in Nov as well.”
