Tomahawk : Oddfellows

Cover for  - Oddfellows

Metalheads of a certain age will surely be rejoicing as Faith No More/ Helmet/ Jesus Lizard/ Melvins supergroup Tomahawk return on January 29 with their fourth LP Oddfellows for the Ipecac label. Formed by Mr. Bungle/ Fantomas frontman Mike Patton two years after FNM’s 1998 split with Lizard guitarist Duane Denison and Helmet (and now Battles) drummer John Stanier, and now featuring Melvins bassist and regular Patton sideman Trevor Dunn, the group have been on hiatus for the last six years and whilst none of the members have been sitting on their hands during that time, it’s certainly good to have them back together again. Watch the video for comeback single “Stone Letter” below, and stream the album in full over at SPIN.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
