“Stone Letter”, the new single from TOMAHAWK, the alt-rock super group featuring Duane Denison (THE JESUS LIZARD, UNSEMBLE), Mike Patton (FAITH NO MORE, FANTÔMAS), John Stanier (BATTLES, HELMET) and Trevor Dunn (MELVINS LITE, MR. BUNGLE), give fans an early listen to “Stone Letter”, is available for streaming at Spin.com. The track comes off the band’s new album, “Oddfellows”, which is scheduled for release on January 29, 2013 via Ipecac.
“Stone Letter” will be released as a limited-edition seven-inch single on Record Store Day’s Black Friday event on November 23. The track will also be made available digitally on December 4. The B-side will be an original etching by famed cartoonist and comics scholar Ivan Brunetti.
“Oddfellows” “is a full-on rock album,” Dennison recently told Rolling Stone. “There’s no quirky weirdness — it’s very straightforward for us. There’s almost like this weird, upbeat sound, what I call ‘heavy pop,’ and Patton totally got the vibe right away… really heavy BEACH BOYS.”
The band’s first live dates in nearly a decade kick off later this month with a half dozen performances including stops at the Voodoo Music Experience and Fun Fun Fun Fest.
TOMAHAWK has been dormant for the past five years after releasing a trio of albums: “Tomahawk” in 2001, “Mit Gas” in 2003 and “Anonymous” in 2007. The band last performed live in 2003.
