Tomahawk Prep Vinyl Box Set for Record Store Day, Plot New Studio Album
Published Mar 01, 2012Eclectic and experimental rock supergroup Tomahawk haven't released an album since 2007's Native American-inspired spirit journey Anonymous, but the band will deliver a new package in the form of an all-encompassing vinyl box called Eponymous to Anonymous this Record Store Day (April 21).
As you may have guessed by its title, the Ipecac Recordings-pressed set collects Tomahawk's three albums: 2001's Tomahawk, 2003's Mit Gas and Anonymous. This is the first time any of the albums will be issued on vinyl. A Facebook post adds that there will be a little extra room in the box set, which will come in handy when the band issue a fourth full-length in the near future.
While Anonymous slimmed down the band's lineup to vocalist Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle), guitarist Duane Denison (the Jesus Lizard) and drummer John Stanier (Battles, Helmet), the group recently announced that ex-Mr. Bungle bassist Trevor Dunn had hopped onboard for the new album. Melvins/Cows four-stringer Kevin Rutmanis had played on Tomahawk's first two discs.
