While it kind of blows we’ll have to wait until 2013 for the new Tomahawk album, I can sometimes be patient. Particularly if it involves Mike Patton.
But yes, folks — we’ve known Tomahawk were working on a new album called Oddfellows, but an official press release issued today made the band’s return officially official.
Tomahawk’s hiatus has ceased. Oddfellows will come out in January, with the band’s first shows back set for October.
“It’s dark and claustrophobic here, light and spacious there,” says Duane Denison of the new album. “Live in the studio, all together in one room. Oddfellows indeed.”
Oddfellows was recorded at Easy Eye Sound Studio in Nashville (owned by The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach) and co-produced by Tomahawk and Collin Dupuis, who has worked with The Black Keys.
Tomahawk’s first live performance in nearly a decade is slated for the New Orleans’ Voodoo Music And Arts Experience in late October. Additional dates will be announced soon.
