TOMAHAWK — the all-star ensemble comprised of Duane Denison (The Jesus Lizard), Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, etc.), John Stanier (ex-Helmet, Battles), and Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle, Fantomas) — have shared a second single from their upcoming album, Tonic Immobility (due March 26).
Titled “Dog Eat Dog,” the new track can be streamed above.
Tomahawk show up just when we need them. Now, a lot has changed since we first met them. Hell, a lot has changed since the last time we heard from them seven years ago!
It doesn’t matter though, because they’ve crept back just when things got really weird, and they’re ready to put the “new” into “new normal” with—wait for it—new music.
On their 20th anniversary (that’s a good hook to sell a
tour livestream, right?), they finally return with their fifth full-length album, Tonic Immobility [Ipecac], in 2021. The guys—guitarist Duane Denison [the Jesus Lizard, Unsemble, etc.], vocalist Mike Patton [Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Fantômas, etc.], drummer John Stanier [Helmet, Battles, etc.], and bassist Trevor “field mouse” Dunn [Mr. Bungle, Fantômas, etc.]—survey where they’ve come from only to leap ahead once more.
Thawed out from their slumber, they sound like, well, Tomahawk…
