American Tomahawk, or Adam Halferty as he's know to his friends, took a job as a hired drummer in the summer of '09 and found himself with a lot of time to reflect on life. A daily life that comprised of hours and hours of time to himself was something that he'd never had before. After week upon week of killing time through a never ending cycle of sleeping, eating, drinking, reading and drinking, he decided to put his time to better use and 'Contradictions, Generalities, And Future Criminals' was the result.
During a break from the road, he found time to record this collection of diary entries turned into songs in an old catholic church, hidden away high in the Colorado mountains where producer Matthew Wilcox's elder brother was the choir leader. With the congregation absent, the two people that were present stayed awake for 48 hours straight, recording the entire EP in one extended session.
American Tomahawk takes it's name from a song Adam wrote that was the result of countless bad dreams, endless Deja vu and sometime in-between, a palm reading. The song was later renamed 'Sunshine People' and the American Tomahawk name was taken for his own.
Fast forward to early 2012 and American Tomahawk are sharing these songs with the world, having just completed their debut US tour as opening act for Fitz & The Tantrums and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.
