"Supergroup" is a word that gets tossed around a lot, but it's hard to deny the musical prowess of the members of Giraffe Tongue Orchestra, a new band featuring Brent Hinds (Mastodon,) Ben Weinman (The Dillinger Escape Plan,) Eric Avery (ex-Jane's Addiction) and Jon Theodore (ex-The Mars Volta.)
Bearded Georgians and purveyors of fine metal, Mastodon made an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman last night to perform a new song, "Curl of the Burl." You can check out video of the performance below.
"Curl of the Burl" was one of the first songs fans heard off the upcoming new album from Mastodon, The Hunter, which is out next Tuesday, September 27. You can now check out the trip-inducing music video for the track, which was directed by Robert Schober, below.
