We are taking it to the streets! Viva revolution!!!
Time become an active member of the Ipecac team. To help promote the upcoming Northern State release we are recruiting a few good men and women to pound the pavement and get the word out about our Northern State gals! Go here to sign up:
Very sorry to report that the long rumored Peeping Tom European August/September tour is not going happen. It looked like it was all set up and ready to run but hit a few last minute snags.
A lot of what we release is unique. At least we like to think so. You might be hard pressed to find any one person that enjoys everything we have released. Some of the releases are ugly sounding and some beautiful sounding. File our latest release under the heading dark, beautiful, haunting, brooding and hopeful. Confused? How about classical?
Simply put, multi instrumentalist, Eyvind Kang is one of the most gifted musicians alive! When listening to his music you are stunned by the depth and beauty of the orchestrations. It would be easy to assume that this comes from an ancient rennaissance era classical musician, but you would be wrong.
"Athlantis" is the second full length we have released from Eyvind. Once again, this features vocals from Mike Patton as well as Jessika Kenney and a team of brilliant players.
Expand your mind, look into your soul. Tune in to Eyind Kang's latest modern classical masterpiece, "Athlantis", out now.
Hey! King Buzzo and Dale Crover's stint on Suicide Girls will also be available on Podcast...treasure it forever on your iPod!

Now that is what I call good programming!
It's here!!! The new Tomahawk record, "Anonymous" is out now! Whoa, is it something different! The third full length from Tomahawk might be the most unique record you've heard or bought this year. Inspired by Native American hymns and chants. A shout out to the "anonymous" peoples that helped form America. This is a rock record that goes in many directions. Created by Duane Denison (USSA) , John Stanier (Battles) and Mike Patton (Peeping Tom). Open your spirit to the sounds of "Anonymous" by TOMAHAWK now!
PS more Peeping Tom European tour dates announced soon!!!
It's all about being cool, right? Well, can't say that everything we do could considered cool, but our most recent release would HAVE to be.
A PURGE OF DISSIDENTS is a very cool project! It is a 48 page art book with original artwork by popular contemporary artist Dalek (James Marshall). This stuff makes collectors drool. It is also a DVD of Dalek's work animated! Plus it is a 30 song soundtrack CD spearheaded by Tom Hazelmyer(Amphetamine Reptile, Halo of Flies) with help from friends like the Melvins, David Yow (Qui, the Jesus Lizard), Grant Hart (Hüsker Dü), Jon Spencer and more! Each of these parts would be cool on their own but combine to be..... way cool!
Looking to win friends and influence people? Knowing the latest about Paris Hilton won't cut it anymore. You need to pick up "A Purge of Dissidents"! A multimedia extravaganza from your hip friends at Ipecac.
We are very bummed to announce that the Peeping Tom show scheduled for June 16 in Auckland has been cancelled due to an unforseen scheduling conflict. All tickets will be refunded. This is a HUGE disappointment for the band. Tickets were doing well and the band was looking forward to kicking off the tour in beautiful New Zealand. They will do everything in their power to make it up in the next year. In brighter news, the Melbourne show sold out so quickly that a second show has been added!!!
The Young Gods, Acoustic!!!! "I Am The Drug" on the streets of Paris.
