Stone Letter is a single by the American experimental rock supergroup Tomahawk. It was released on vinyl and as a digital download on November 23, 2012. The song appears on Tomahawk's fourth album Oddfellows.[1]

Release[edit]

The band was originally going to release the track Waratorium as the lead single from Oddfellows,[2] although it was later cancelled in favor of Stone Letter. Regarding why the song was chosen as the lead single, guitarist Duane Denison explained "‘Stone Letter’ was easily the most accessible, inoffensive sing-along-type song.... It seemed the most like other rock that is on the radio."[3]

Denison also elaborated he hoped the song would earn the band new fans, saying "If we suddenly have a deluge of teenage girls [at our concerts] wanting to hear ‘Stone Letter,’ I’d love it."[3]

Music Video[edit]

On December 3, 2012 the band released the music video for the song online, directed by Vincent Forcier. It is the band's first official music video from this album.[4][5]
