UPDATES! The webmaster returned from his European tour so things should be a little smoother around here. SUPRISING news..... the Tomahawk artwork got done sooner then expected so the CD should be in stores even sooner than the 31st!!!!! Look for it in Europe as early as the 22nd! Australia the 26th! and North America the 29th or 30th!!!!!
Remember you can order any of our releases by going to the discography section and clicking the buy link next to the CD you are interested in. This goes through CDNow and gives the label MAJOR kick backs.
The Tomahawk US tour dates are finalised and in the calendar section. By the way, in case you did not know, the calendar section is for tour dates!!!!!!!! (some folks are just slow) Also, we do not get any ticket info, so please contact the venues to find out how and when tix go on sale. Many shows are on sale now and this tour already looks bigger than Fantômas! Very sorry to every city the band is missing. This tour had to go pretty short due to the Fantômas tour and Melvins recording schedule. (Canada,Cleveland,St.Louis, etc, we will get you next time). January looks to be the Australian tour followed by Europe in Feb/March.

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!
Pull yourselves away from the news long enough to see the VH1 special "The History of Grunge". Ipecac Recordings VP , King Buzzo is the star. The first line in the special: Buzz- "Grunge is commercial garbage!" You go!!!!!!!
Uh oh! 3 more dates with TOOL have been added, 2 in N Carolina and one in Florida. That will be then end of the touring for Fantômas for now.
