Giraffe Tongue Orchestra Writing In California

Ben and Brent

That’s right, ladies and gentlejerks.

The Dillinger Escape Plan’s guitarist Ben Weinman is in Los Angeles.

Why? Not to see the La Brea Tar Pits — although, he might want to while he’s in town.

Nope — The Dillinger Escape Plan wizard is doing “production” and writing sessions for the upcoming Giraffe Tongue Orchestra project.

What’s Giraffe Tongue Orchestra?

Well, that’s the band Weinman’s in with Mastodon’s Brent Hinds, former Mars Volta member Jon Theodore, and Eric Avery, a bassist whose work I have always revered.

That there is a picture of Weinman and Hinds, in the studio.

I can’t wait to hear what this band actually sounds like.
