From Tomahawk’s new album, Tonic Immobility, in stores March 26th. Pre-order now at http://lnk.to/TomahawkTonic
Tomahawk, who recently announced their first full-length album in eight years, Tonic Immobility, have shared a second track from the twelve-song album, debuting the video for “Dog Eat Dog”.
“It’s a statement about competition, oppression, and unity–served up with a healthy dose of slapstick humor,” said Duane Denison (The Jesus Lizard/Unsemble) of the Eric Livingston directed clip. Mike Patton (Mr. Bungle/Fantômas) added: “Dogs patiently wait, obediently, for humans to snuff each other out…so they can take over the world. Dogs rule!!!!”
The band, rounded out by Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle/Fantômas) and John Stanier (Helmet/Battles), set tongues wagging with the January album announcement and concurrent release of the “Business Casual” single (https://youtu.be/_tAJuKu04R8). Brooklyn Vegan said, “it’s the kind of loud, dark, eccentric rock song that Tomahawk have always done so well” while Revolver called the track “slithery and venomous.”
Pre-orders are available now, with the album available in the following formats: digital, CD digipak, and 180 gram LP in textured gatefold packaging. Vinyl variants include standard black, coke bottle clear (indie retail exclusive – 5000 available), opaque metallic silver (Ipecac webstore exclusive – 2000 available), and crystal clear (Newbury Comics exclusive – 1000 available).
