Earlier this week, the undisputed king of singing, one Mike Patton, hinted at upcoming recording plans for Faith No More. As it turns out, he’s also got something in the works for Tomahawk, his long-running supergroup featuring Jesus Lizard guitarist Duane Denison, Battles drummer John Stanier, and bassist Trevor Dunn.
