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!

FINALLY!!!! The North American tour takes shape. We will obviously add the missing venues when we get them and might try to squeeze in an extra show or 2 on off nights, but this is how it is looking. We have NO idea about ticket info. Call the venues. Lot's of cool new merch! It looks like on the shows with TOOL, Fantômas might go on before TOOL. Don't ask why!
