Tomahawk announce new LP ‘Tonic Immobility’; release “Business Casual”

Tomahawk – the band featuring 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 announced their first full-length album in eight years, ‘Tonic Immobility,’ set for release on March 26th through Ipecac Recordings (pre-order).

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.

For a preview of the twelve-song album (co-produced by the band and Paul Allen), check out new single “Business Casual” below. Denison describes the track (which marks the first new music from the act since 2014’s “M.E.A.T.” single) as “a mocking look at the life of work in America.”

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).

Tomahawk new album Tonic Immobility

Here’s more on Tomahawk via a press release:
Stop if you’ve heard this one before…Four guys from a bunch of other bands walk into a studio and walk out with a record. That’s sort of the story of Tomahawk, but it’s not the whole shebang. The guys—guitarist Duane Denison [the Jesus Lizard, Unsemble, etc.], vocalist Mike Patton [Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Fantômas, etc.], drummer John Stanier [Helmet, Battles, etc.], and bassist Trevor Dunn [Mr. Bungle, Fantômas, etc.]—show up just when we need them. The first time was in 2001 with the self-titled Tomahawk. Following Mit Gas [2003] and Anonymous [2007], they dropped Oddfellows during 2013. It marked their best debut, reaching #9 on the Billboard Top Independent Albums Chart. The A.V. Club gave it a grade of “A-,” Revolver rated it “4-out-of-5 stars,” and Pitchfork chimed in, “This lurid, thorny, profoundly weird music–just comes tearing out.” All kinds of touring and festivals followed before the members went back to their gazillion other gigs in 2014. On their 20th anniversary they finally return with their fifth full-length album, Tonic Immobility [Ipecac], in 2021. Thawed out from their slumber, they sound like, well, Tomahawk…
