There were some eyebrows raised last year when Mastodon's Troy Sanders and Soulfly's Max Cavalera revealed they were working on a project together, and the anticipation level grew once it was revealed that Dillinger Escape Plan frontman Greg Puciato and The Mars Volta's former drummer Dave Elitch were involved as well. With some time for the band to work through the specifics, Puciato has offered an update on their new album progress.
Mastodon singer-bassist Troy Sanders is sitting backstage riffing on a guitar when he learns that all six of his amps have bitten the dust just shortly before he's going onstage. Though the scenario is not that likely, it's played to the full humorous hilt for the new short film / promo starring Sanders for Orange Amplifiers.
Soulfly frontman Max Cavalera has spoken in the past about an upcoming musical project with Dillinger Escape Plan vocalist Greg Puciato and former Mars Volta drummer Dave Elitch, but a new member has been added to the yet-unnamed supergroup. That man just happens to be Troy Sanders, the bassist and co-vocalist of modern metal outfit Mastodon.
Mastodon singer-bassist Troy Sanders recently sat down with Hysteria Magazine during the band's residency on Australia's touring Soundwave Festival. During the interview, Sanders took the opportunity to dispel the rumors once and for all about a reported altercation between Mastodon and System of a Down, which put Mastodon singer-guitarist Brent Hinds in the hospital.
