Mike Patton‘s Tomahawk return with their first album in eight years in Tonic Immobility.
The band, which includes Duane Denison (The Jesus Lizard/ Unsemble), Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle/Fantômas), and John Stanier (Helmet/Battles/The Mark Of Cain), reconvene for their first full-length since Oddfellows with Tonic Immobility, produced by the band and Paul Allen.
Tonic Immobility is set for release on March 26 via Patton‘s label, Ipecac Recordings. You can listen to the first single, Business Casual, below.
Denison describes Business Casual as, “a mocking look at the life of work in America.”
Shedding more light on Tonic Immobility, Denison says, “Tonic immobility could just be something in the air we’re feeling.
“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.”
