TOMAHAWK Announces Fall Tour; 'Waratorium' Single Due In November

TOMAHAWK, the underground super group that includes Duane Dennison (THE JESUS LIZARD, UNSEMBLE), Trevor Dunn (FANTOMAS, MELVINS LITE), Mike Patton (MONDO CANE, FAITH NO MORE) and John Stanier (BATTLES, HELMET), has announced a brief fall tour kicking off on October 27 at Nashville's The Exit/In.

The dates are as follows:

Oct. 27 - Nashville, TN - Exit/In
Oct. 28 - New Orleans, LA - Voodoo Music Experience
Oct. 29 - Memphis, TN - New Daisy Theatre
Oct. 31 - Dallas, TX - Granada Theatre
Nov. 1 - Houston, TX - Fitzgerald's
Nov. 2-4 - Austin, TX - Fun Fun Fun Fest

TOMAHAWK will preview music from its upcoming album, "Oddfellows", with the release of a seven-inch single titled "Waratorium" on November 23 (Record Store Day's Black Friday event). The B-side will be an original etching by famed cartoonist and comics scholar Ivan Brunetti. A digital release for "Waratorium" follows a week later.

Due in January 2013 via Ipecac Recordings, "Oddfellows" "is a full-on rock album," Dennison recently told Rolling Stone. "There's no quirky weirdness — it's very straightforward for us. There's almost like this weird, upbeat sound, what I call 'heavy pop,' and Patton totally got the vibe right away... really heavy BEACH BOYS."

TOMAHAWK has been dormant for the past five years after releasing a trio of albums: "Tomahawk" in 2001, "Mit Gas" in 2003 and "Anonymous" in 2007. The band last performed live in 2003.
