Tomahawk debut second track off new forthcoming album
Tomahawk, who recently announced their first full-length album in eight years, Tonic Immobility (March 26, Ipecac Recordings), have shared a second track from the twelve-song album, debuting the graphic video for “Dog Eat Dog” back on Feb.26.
Here’s Tomahawk and their newly released track “Dog Eat Dog” right here on Hair Metal Mixtape
That was Tomahawk and their newly released track “Dog Eat Dog” who recently announced their first full-length album in eight years, Tonic Immobility (March 26, Ipecac Recordings)
“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 (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.”
“Tonic Immobility could just be something in the air we’re feeling,” explained 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 pre-orders are available now (lnk.to/TomahawkTonic), 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 pressed, now sold out), and crystal clear (Newbury Comics exclusive – 1000 available).
