While many bands that bring together familiar players are referred to as “super groups,” Legend of the Seagullmen is the real deal, bringing together members of Tool, Mastodon and Zappa Plays Zappa. The band – which features Tool drummer Danny Carey, Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds and Zappa Plays Zappa bass player Pete Griffin – has released its latest song, the mystical “Fogger.” The track, which will arrive on Legend of the Seagullmen’s upcoming, self-titled debut album, is currently available at the usual digital outlets.

“‘The Fogger’ is a mystical aquatic tale about The Seagullmen’s very own drummer, Danny Carey,” LoS guitarist Jimmy Hayward says in an interview with Revolver. “He stalks the ocean in search of users, abusers and polluters and deals lethal justice with his third eye while ripping the faces from skulls.”

Hayward adds. “Just like he does during the punishing and beautifully complex drum solo in the middle of the song. The solo explodes into a furious conclusion, leaving no doubt about the karmic justice and pure ferocious power of ‘The Fogger!'”

Legend of the Seagullmen’s self-titled album will arrive in full on Friday (Feb. 9). The band’s album is currently streaming in full via Billboard. As for new music from Tool, that’s in the works, but there’s no confirmation on exactly when the new tunes will arrive.
