In addition to collaborating on a new guitar pedal, Matt Pike (High On Fire) and Brent Hinds (Mastodon) have also been working on new music together. According to Pike, the duo already have two hours worth of material.
Pike and his wife Alyssa Maucere-Pike (Lord Dying), who also contributed to the project, recently discussed the collaboration on “Hot-Blooded With Cat Jones” with Matt having said:
“Well, it was supposed to ramp up here and it’s going a little slow now [due to] quarantine. ‘Cause I planned on going back there [to Brent‘s] after this next Sleep tour or something and hanging out and sitting down.
‘Cause we got some stuff done, but it wasn’t a major lot. But there’s definitely all these… there’s like two hours worth of ideas, it’s just putting them all together you know? And feeling each other out and having different… We kind want to make it like so we can have different people, like different bass players, different drummers, different singers, different people playing tambourine, whatever [laughs]. Like some sax guys… ‘oh, what’s that dude doing over there, he’s choking a goose!’ [imitates sax] [laughs].”
