Meet Giraffe Tongue Orchestra, probably 2016's best supergroup

Meet Giraffe Tongue Orchestra, the supergroup featuring members of Alice In Chains, Mastodon and Dillinger Escape Plan that gives you a zoology lesson as well as being a musical chameleon

Seven years is a long gestation period for any album, let alone a band’s first. Giraffe Tongue Orchestra (Brent Hinds: “I was at a zoo and a giraffe grabbed a bunch of bananas from my hand with its tongue and peeled them with it as well – by the time they got to its mouth, they were ready to be eaten. I’d found the name for our band”), is that band. A ‘supergroup’ that came together in fits and starts, they finally bore fruit with this year’s Broken Lines album.
