Brent Hinds of Mastodon is a participant in numerous other musical projects, including Fiend Without a Face and West End Motel. Add Legend of the Seagullmen to the tireless guitarist/vocalist’s inventory of outlets.
The genre-destroying supergroup also features Tool’s Danny Carey on drums, Zappa Meets Zappa’s Peter Griffin on bass, director Jimmy Hayward (Jonah Hex) on guitar, Chris DiGiovanni on synth and David Dreyer on vocals. While their music could be described as cinematic psychedelic rock, on their self-titled full-length debut album they sing of shipwrecks, giant squids, killer whales and other oceanic threats, tall tales and calamities.
The album will be available beginning Feb. 9th via Dine Alone Records.
