Systolic, I believe. His radio friend said the single is going on the air on the 4th or something.

Then he came back saying that since it was announced on TB as the 17th they weren't gonna do it anymore.

Followed up by his radio friend claiming that he was going to leak the track himself on Wednesday if it doesn't air Tuesday.

That's the impression that I got from the news title. It seemed weird that he put it "four (4) listening parties," along with the fact that he said that there is a real meaning behind it. of course, it was an april fools gag, so he may have just been stirring the pot a little to give us something to do until 4/17.

I do and I don't. Its not like I'm going to be able to resist listening to the single in another week or so when it officially gets released on Toolband. I don't really see the point in forcing myself not to listen to it.

Now, the entire album leaking on the other hand... I'm definately going to wait to buy it before I listen.

I firmly believe that something could happen today (April 4th)
Reading Tools January Newsletter, where Blair condicted an Ouiji board working, the date April 4th is mentioned, however apparently systematically rejected by the spirit itself. However, as Blair so very generously likes to be very cryptic with his wordings and interpretations of occult aspects, im not clever enough to be able to decipher anything at all in relation to it. I definately think there are more clues hidden in it. Damn, wheres my Enochian translator?

My Tasmanian firend gave me a call earlier today after he had picked up the new album. He bragged about how cool Tasmaina was for getting the 'new release' so early...









It's apparently called 'Lateralus'


... and its first single, 'Schism' should hit Tasmanian radio sometime soon in 2006.


p.s. Rubb is the only Tasmanian person I know. Poor bastards! All forgotten and neglected down there...

If something's going to "leak" in a way or another, it will be straight from the band. At least radio stations have nothing. I just e-mailed FMQB and asked if they had the Vicarious single already (remember that one dude from last night who gave us the link to their site and claimed to have that song already), and when were they going to stream clips of it. They said:

Hi!
Unfortunately we don't have a copy yet. I think they are keeping the new Tool music under lockdown. As soon as we get a copy, we will post a clip. It will probably be in a few weeks.

All we can do is wait.

duuude, what you missed was him having a psychotic conversation with an alter ego of himself, doing things like making up lyrics, and then logging on systolic and going "yeah thats them!" and then logging the other one on. He got caught, and responded with a "fuck everyone" attitude, and was like "this was the best joke ever!" and then went away.

ok mr. "I wasnt there i was working". He was definitely bullshitting, but since that thread is gone, you can examine this one instead, http://www.toolnavy.com/showthread.php?t=39658

Seems to me like Systolic's friend could have played him any old shit, said it was Tool and he would have believed him.

I have absolutley no expectations for any sort of leak from him.

Unless of course it's the Doom 3 intro....


And I have not once dismissed that as a possibility.

Everyone has simply assumed that what I have heard is legit. Theres always a chance that it isnt.


this is how it ends.

I went to my local record store today. Maynard was working there. I asked him if the album was out today and he said "you betcha, you must be really smart having figured out our elaborate hoax". Then he asked me how much money I had. I told him I had 100 bucks. He said we had to keep the secret release date extra secret so we needed to go out in the back alley to complete the transaction. Then he kicked me in the nuts and stole my wallet. I can't wait until aldarain comes out.
