Alterna-metal insitution Tomahawk is returning early next year with Oddfellows, their long-awaited fourth album and first in six years. The supergroup (that's Faith No More barkjaculator Mike Patton, Jesus Lizard aggy-twanger Duane Denison, and Battles drummer John Stainer) have replaced bassist Kevin Rutmanis with the mighty Fantômas/Bungle/Madlove bassist Trevor Dunn, who has been dutifully blogging for us while hitting on the road on Melvins Lite's record breaking 51 States in 51 Days Tour. Oddfellows is easily Tomahawk's most diverse to date: There's groany, smoky, Morricone-jazz; there's twisty AmRep-gone-R&B bludgeon; and, most notably, there's the types of epic, majestic choruses that Patton diehards might remember from the final Faith No More LP, Album of the Year. You can check out first taste "Stone Letter" below, buy the Record Store Day 7" on November 23, download it on iTunes on December 4, or hear it live at one of these confirmed tour dates...
