It appears that Eric Avery, the bassist for Jane’s Addiction, could be out of Giraffe Tongue Orchestra.
The band, boasting Ben Weinman of Dillinger Escape Plan and Brent Hinds from Mastodon, appeared to be at NAMM this week.
An image posted by Ben on Instagram boasts Pete Griffin, who plays bass for Dethklok — not Avery, who was previously announced as the bassist for the group.
Ex-Mars Volta drummer Thomas Pridgen, a former member of the band, is also in the pic. So really, I don’t know what is happening in that pic.
But if I were to draw any conclusions, is that Avery is out.
He also left Jane’s Addiction after returning for a spate of reunion shows some years back.
Producer Ross Robinson helmed the band’s recording sessions this past September.
There is no word yet on when that material will surface.
