Tomahawk (Duane Denison • Mike Patton • John Stanier • Trevor Dunn)

Tomahawk (Duane Denison • Mike Patton • John Stanier • Trevor Dunn)

Tomahawk is back!
Where were they? What were they doing? Is this a reunion? Who are they now? What's next?

So many questions. Here are those answers and more!

Tomahawk took a break to discover the many truths of the universe. They also uncovered several non truths. They were primarily holed up in a special place similar to the many caves in the mountains of Appalachia. They found time to create the new tunes that make up their new record "Oddfellows" that will be released worldwide in January 2013 on Ipecac Recordings.

This is not a reunion….unless that means they will make more money.

Tomahawk is Duane Denison (the Jesus Lizard, Unsemble, etc), Mike Patton (Faith No More, Fantômas, etc) & John Stanier (Helmet, Battles, etc) and this time around joined by Trevor "field mouse" Dunn ( Mr. Bungle, Fantômas, etc).

The band released their self titled debut in 2001, followed by "Mit Gas" in 2003 and "Anonymous" in 2007. They released a limited edition vinyl box set "Eponymous to Anonymous" (cheeky, huh?) in early 2012. They camped out at Dan Auerbach's Easy Eye studios in Nashville with Collin Dupuis and left with "Oddfellows" to show for it. To kick off the frenzy that is sure to follow they will release a one-sided 7 inch single "Stone Letter" in Nov of 2012. The b-side is an etching by reknowned cartoonist and comics scholar, Ivan Brunetti who was also kind enough to design the album package.

So what does all of this mean? Ok, we will allow this final question. It means that Tomahawk is back! Rock and roll will be saved and destroyed. They plan to play live shows for the first time since 2003 and are willing to go anywhere as long as they can get a warm bed with cold pillows, a square meal and a boatload of cash.

Instrumental inventions, due to limited size, breed compositional challenges that lead to instrumental upgrades, further influencing musical direction.
Buke: atypically small 6-string guitar.
Gase: guitar/bass hybrid.
Minimal big beats from foot-activated, low and high frequency percussion.
Musical content may consist of volatile rhythmic scenery and panoramic vocal melodies.

Festivals: All Tomorrow?s Parties, Moogfest, Big Ears, Bang On A Can, Pop Montreal, Cross-Linx, Fusion Fest and more.

If, while listening to Buke and Gase‘s critically acclaimed new record, General Dome, you ever got the urge to head-bang or punch the air, feel free to rejoice in your forward-thinking inclinations. Yes, there IS a heavy sound beneath Arone Dyer’s pop-leaning and acrobatic vocals, and you’re not the only one to notice. Metal supergroup Tomahawk(featuring Mike Patton of Faith No More and Mr. Bungle, Trevor Dunn, also of Mr. Bungle, Duane Denison of The Jesus Lizard, and John Stanier of Helmet and Battles) has asked Buke and Gase to join them for a series of shows in June. And to further show the versatility of Buke and Gase’s music, the band has also been asked to open for psychedelic chameleons Animal Collective in Washington, DC. Catch them live this summer!
