    Looked, and didn't find this to be a repost.

    Happened across this today. Sounds interesting. Anybody heard anything else?

    This sounds pretty awesome. I think Suicidal Tendencies is one of the worst bands ever, but he's certainly not a bad drummer, and Tosin and Javier are monster players.

    Animals as Leaders + Mars Volta + Suicidal Tendencies?

    Did someone just divide by zero?

    Wasn't familiar with Eric Moore, so I looked him up.

    Sweet Jews for Jesus :eek:

    I love one Suicidal Tendencies album, haven't followed them for several years at this point, but judging from that one video, the guy is an utter fiend. Sick chops and I bet he's got killer pocket as well, they wouldn't have picked someone that couldn't hang on jazz.

    Suffice to say I am utterly stoked for this.

    I remember Tosin telling me about this, and I remember Anthony Green screaming at him us, "it will be the damnedest!" :lol:

    And if Anthony Green says that. Well, I just can't put words out that explain my excitement.

    If ya'll haven't seen the Eric Moore vs Derek Roddy drum battle, I would invest my time into that right now. Really showcases what dude can do behind the kit. Adding Tosin to this is just a mindfuck!

    If anyone doesnt know, Lingua Franca is "a language systematically used to make communication possible between people not sharing a mother tongue, in particular when it is a third language"

    Sick fucking title, sick fucking musicians, cant wait!

    Even if it's gonna be half as epic as it sounds it will still be twice as epic as anything, apart from AAL2, that I'm expecting this year.

    What's this "Mars Volta Side Project" shit. It's got one guy from TMV. He's not even in the band anymore! And not to diss on him or anything, but he wasn't even part of what made them unique.

    I think this project will definitely highlight his playing. To be fair, this is an AAL side project, anyways.
