TOMAHAWK!!! We were planning on puttin a preview track of TOMAHAWK. up next week but felt that people might enjoy a little uplift for the weekend. The track is called "Flashback". The CD is scheduled to be released worldwide by the end of October in a fancy embossed digipak. The band plans on touring North America in November. Hoping to tour Australia in January and Europe in February. These plans are tentative.
In a separate note, we could really do without the racist hatred on the message board.
This is a terrible time of tragedy, but it is not a time to wallow in depression or hatred. Stay strong peeps!
Oh, and enjoy the music!
