Yesterday (20th), Ipecac Recordings shared a teaser of what was suspected to be new Tomahawk music. Today (21st), our guess turned out to be accurate as Tomahawk officially announced their first full-length effort in eight years. Tonic Immobility will be released on March 26th via Ipecac Recordings. The group 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 decided after a rough 2020, it’s time to release new music. 


Denison explains:

“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.”


To celebrate announcement of their upcoming album co-produced by the band and Paul Allen, the group has unveiled the first single, “Business Casual.” 


Denison describes the track as: 

“A mocking look at the life of work in America.”
