TOMAHAWK: 'Oddfellows' Video Released

"Oddfellows", the new video from TOMAHAWK — the alt-rock supergroup featuring Duane Denison (THE JESUS LIZARD, UNSEMBLE), Mike Patton (FAITH NO MORE, FANTÔMAS), John Stanier (BATTLES, HELMET) and Trevor Dunn (MELVINS LITE, MR. BUNGLE) — can be seen below. The live clip, which features an assortment of animation and appropriately odd graphics, was filmed and animated by Vincent Forcier.

"Oddfellows" is the title track of TOMAHAWK's new album, which came out on January 29 via Ipecac. The band's first CD in over six years sold 5,700 copies in the United States in its first week of release.

TOMAHAWK returns to the road tomorrow, with the quartet's first West Coast dates in over a decade kicking off at The Showbox in Seattle. Other upcoming performances include a stint on Australia's Soundwave festival and stops at Lollapalooza in both Brazil and Chile.

In a November 2012 interview with Nashville Scene, Denison stated about the new CD, "Some of this album is, to me, fairly straightforward hard rock, and then some of it is ... I don't know what you'd call it — avant-pop or something? If anything, I think the album is a bit hookier and has bigger choruses than anything we've done. There's a lot of group vocals from song to song, almost these Greek choruses showing up. To me, it's kind of depressing when I go see a band or hear a record where the songs all have a similar rhythmic feel or the vocals always start on the downbeat. At the same time, you don't want things to be so different that it doesn't even sound like it's the same band. You want it to sound like it's the same people with the same point of view — you're just expressing it in a different way."

TOMAHAWK was dormant for five years after releasing a trio of albums: "Tomahawk" in 2001, "Mit Gas" in 2003 and "Anonymous" in 2007.
