Tomahawk’s Mit Gas and Anonymous to Get Special Re-Releases


Earlier this year, Ipecac Recordings put out special vinyl re-releases of Tomahawk‘s self-titled debut and the 2013 release Oddfellows. It was a great way to celebrate those incredibly unique and unforgettable albums from one of Mike Patton‘s coolest projects.

Well it turns out today that they ain’t done and later this year, two more Tomahawk albums are getting special vinyl variants: Mit Gas and Anonymous.

If you don’t know anything about either of these albums, I suggest you fire up whatever service you use to listen to your music and get started, because they’re both a great listen.

Mit Gas was the band’s second studio release and featured Duane Denison (Jesus Lizard) on guitars, Kevin Rutmanis (Cows and Melvins) on bass, and John Stanier (Helmet) on drums. That album in particular contains bangers like “Capt. Midnight,” “Mayday,” “and “Rape This Day.” Filled with a desert twanginess you got from the first self-titled record.

As for Anonymous, which was released back in 2007 via Ipecac, the band took an even more experimental route by adopting opting to adapt Native American compositions into the sounds that make up the record. Buoyed by the single “Sun Dance,” the record also saw the addition of Melvins bassis Trevor Dunn after Rutmanis left the band.

Honestly, both of these records are worth your time. The reissues will be available in the following variants:

MIT GAS • Standard Black • Indie Red • Revolver Fools Gold • Ipecac Gold
ANONYMOUS • Standard Black • Indie Orange • Revolver Fools Gold • Ipecac Tan

Both re-releases will be available to the U.S., Canada, UK. and Australia on June 2, while EU fans will have to wait until July 7. You can preorder one or both re-issues today.
