Tomahawk have released their first full-length album in eight years, Tonic Immobility (Ipecac Recordings), and with it they have shared a video for “Predators and Scavengers” directed, animated and produced by Diego Cumplido.
Duane Denison (The Jesus Lizard/Unsemble) said of the clip:”‘Predators and Scavengers’ started out as a general observation on the current ecological climate of our planet. Perhaps it could also be applied to the socioeconomic climate as well? “
Stop if you’ve heard this one before…Four guys from a bunch of other bands walk into a studio and walk out with a record. That’s sort of the story of Tomahawk, but it’s not the whole shebang. The guys—guitarist Duane Denison [the Jesus Lizard, Unsemble, etc.], vocalist Mike Patton [Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Fantômas, etc.], drummer John Stanier [Helmet, Battles, etc.], and bassist Trevor Dunn [Mr. Bungle, Fantômas, etc.]—show up just when we need them. The first time was in 2001 with the self-titled Tomahawk. Following Mit Gas  andAnonymous , they dropped Oddfellows during 2013.
