Rock super-group Tomahawk have made their long awaited return, announcing the release of their first full-length album in eight years, Tonic Immobility.
The four piece, made up of Duane Denison (The Jesus Lizard/Unsemble), Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle/Fantômas), Mike Patton (Faith No More/Mr. Bungle, etc.) and John Stanier (Helmet/Battles), have also dropped the records lead single, Business Casual. The track is described by Denison as “a mocking look at the life of work in America”.
Speaking of the upcoming release, the band share: “Tonic Immobility could just be something in the air we’re feeling,” says Denison. “It’s been a rough year between the pandemic and everything else. A lot of people feel somewhat powerless and stuck as they’re not able to make a move without second guessing themselves or worrying about the outcomes. For as much as the record possibly reflects that, it’s also an escape from the realities of the world. We’re not wallowing in negativity or getting political. For me, rock has always been an alternate reality to everything else. I feel like this is yet another example.”
Tonic Immobility is out March 26! Listen to Business Casual below.
