Question Of The Week: Name The Cavelera-Sanders-Puciato Side Project Thingy
A side project can be fun — fun for grinding musicians, fun for chill fans, and fun for a lucky record label ($). And moonlighting big-timers can easily signal listeners that the enterprise is not so serious: Maybe its members each assume a silly alter-ego, funny monikers, and a goofy band name too. Maybe they trade instruments or attempt a new vibe, stuff like that. Doing these communicates to us that, hey, this little endeavor is a pick-up game played by all-stars that may not have the chemistry of a tested team. The results might be poetry, could be a pile of barf. But it’s fun!
Now of course, some side projects are deadly serious, which is brave. Let’s embrace both kinds today, and lend a helping hand to one budding gang of refugees from high-pressure gigs in this Question Of The Week :) Thanks for reading!
Inspired by the as-yet unnamed project from three superdudes, we asked our staff:
You have been approached by Max Cavelera (Soulfly, ex-Sepultura) and Troy Sanders (Mastodon), and asked to submit up to three (3) choices of a band name for their unnamed project with Greg Puciato (Dillinger Escape Plan). They’ve agreed to your fee of $10k; what are your submissions?
