Tomahawk — the eclectic rock super group comprised of Mike Patton, The Jesus Lizard’s guitarist Daune Denison, Mr. Bungle’s bassist Trevor Dunn, and Battles’ drummer John Stanier — will precede the release of their first album in six years with a string of fall tour dates and a Record Store Day exclusive single.
Marking the band’s first live performances since 2003, the short jaunt kicks off in Nashville on October 27th and includes appearances at New Orleans’ Voodoo Experience and Austin’s Fun Fun Fun Fest. Check out the full docket below.
As for the Record Store Day single, “Waratorium” serves as a taste of the forthcoming LP Oddfellows. It will be pressed on 7″ vinyl, backed by an original etching by famed cartoonist and comics scholar Ivan Brunetti, and will released on November 23rd as part of RSD’s Black Friday Event. A digital release for “Waratorium” follows a week later.
Oddfellows will be released in Jaunary via Ipeac Recordings.
