The Newest Supergroup is Called WHAT?

When William DuVall (Alice in Chains), Brent Hinds (Mastodon), Ben Weinman (Dillinger Escape Plan), Pete Griffin (Dethlok), Thomas Pridgen (ex-Mars Volta) and briefly Juliette Lewis decided to form a band together, the first order of business was to come up with a name.

Giraffe Tongue Orchestra. This proves we’re out of cool band names. Still, with this kind of star power, the music should be rather interesting. There are a few more details at Consequence of Sound.
