Re: General Tool Discussion

It looks like one to me. I don't play sports though. From the point of view of a musician its certainly similar enough to a baseball field to make me think of it looking like one, not really all that far fetched. I don't care either way I am not attending and im patient

Re: General Tool Discussion

The APC show in St. Louis was a good time. They started super strong but somehow toward the end the show seemed to be lacking some energy. Maybe it was just me getting tired in my advanced age. Two things worth mentioning. In 20 Tool shows and about a half dozen APC shows I have Never heard MJK be so talkative. Seems like he's having a good time. Also he dedicated Gravity to Carina Round. Anyone have any idea what that might be about?

"I take it that you already know about the rumors floating around of a major Tool show in 2017. Needless to say, at this time, I CANNOT confirm anything as being official."
ok not much there but then the next paragraph came this...
"Q: “Curveball, curveball, what ball, where is the ball?” BMB: All I can say is that I am standing in the batter’s box kicking at the dirt near home plate. I’ve got my helmet adjusted and have tightened my gloves. I’m wearing both shin and elbow guards, and there’s lots of pine tar on my piece of lumber. Although the pitcher can reach speeds in the 90s, I’m still looking for that wicked curve…"
I forgot about this until today and of course when i saw the first picture they posted of the show i thought it was a baseball diamond. It makes for a good basis to my theory that it will indeed be a very important show that is going to be much different as expected, or maybe not so much to the ones who are correct.
so what are your thoughts on the theory that the Gov Ball Contract saying they need to be debuting new music? (which by the way i haven't bothered to try and research- can anyone verify that?)

When i read about the negotiations, I had the thought that they might drop on a streaming service for a period of time before they sell physical albums… which they could do through their online store and drive the price with some art/packaging goodies. I also was wondering if they would dabble in VR/360 video. The gorillaz have some shit like that coming soon and that would be some next level shit for the videos AJ & Grey put together.

I would say that all contracts are different and that anyone suggesting Tool must debut new music to headline a festival are drawing a long bow.

I dont think they would get involved in anything where they would be forced into anything of that nature, and i wouldnt be incredibly happy if they played the whole tour and then decide to drop the new album at the very last show. I do think that they could play new material starting with the first show of the tour but knowing that everybody is uploading the shows almost instantly they would most certainly like to have listeners hear new material on a proper setup and not recorded from an iphone. so in the end im conflicted about it all. i say one whole new song right from the start and the last show involving something very special involving that song as well as a big announcement or maybe a new video or something unexpected. i do believe in my curveball theory but not on what exactly this will turn out to be.

The idea of Tool debuting a new album at a show is complete fantasy.

Re: General Tool Discussion

^100%!! The only time I have been surprised by a Tool/Maynard show was his birthday at The Greek in LA was when Danny and Justin came out and played Sober. Also I have been surprised by certain songs but they would never play a new song live or wait till the last show of this mini tour to play a new song let alone a new album. Face it my Tool loving friends, we will know when an album has been recorded and unfortunately there is no evidence of that yet.

its not my fantasy as i am happy with the music they have produced, and in fact i am terrified of a new album and what it might sound like, a mixture of drunk wrestler intro songs and mystic occult lounge tunes is what the current influences are pointing towards. maybe it will kick ass but todays tool is not the same as the tool i knew and loved, im indifferent to it really, i want it mostly so i can stop my brain from making connections of blairs crap and what it smells of.

Re: General Tool Discussion

Re: General Tool Discussion

got to enjoy apc in Tulsa the other evening. Thats the first time Ive got to see them and it was a pretty good show. Maynard was very talkative throughout the show and even goofed off with a couple shake weights in the middle of a guitar solo. Said he got them as a birthday gift and was gonna try and get a quick workout in. One thing that I did notice with this show compared to all the tool shows I've seen are the vocals in the mix were great. Crystal clear up front and you could every word he was singing/saying. The lighting was bueno as well, dunno if thats juniors work or not but I appreciated it. Got lucky enough to snag a signed poster and would definitely go see them again.

Re: General Tool Discussion

Iv tried to find some actual proof about that governors ball rumors. Even compared past headlines with when their albums came out. While a lot of them have had albums come out around the timing of this festival it seems to just be a rumor to me. Iv only seen people post about it on reddit.

Re: General Tool Discussion

It will be kind of nice to be able to see the setlists before I buy my ticket for San Jose. If its the same setlist as the last tour, I'll probably pass.

Re: General Tool Discussion

Yeah i wish i could have know the setlist before decided to make the trek to St.paul from Chicago but iv always wanted to see them on back to back dates so i went with it.

I will say that the set from the last 2 tours is probably my favorite from the last 5+ years or so.

Re: General Tool Discussion

So wait. There is a rumor that a promoter put in the contract that Tool must perform new music?

That's rich.

And an awesome rumor to start if you want to drum up interest in a show you were promoting.

Not even Golden Voice has that power/balls.

I don't think that's anything more than a few eager Tool fans on reddit adding 2 and 2 and coming up with 5.

Tool are an established act, coming to a location they haven't played in some time. The promoter knows they will sell a decent number of tickets without a new album, and at the end of the day, the money is all they are interested in.

For those in NYC, that last tour actually followed a real album release. Must be nice to have too many tour dates in your region!

Re: General Tool Discussion

Pretty sure must of us have traveled a good amount of distance to see them. Unless you live in cali its pretty much required to see them more than once every 10 years lol. Especially if you life in the midwest/east coast.

Tool is California and California is Tool. We don't mind sharing though..

(Insert California is full of tools joke here...)

TOOL TOUR SUPPORT ACTS

Tool is pleased to announce that prog rockers the "ONCE AND FUTURE BAND" will be the support act from Fairfax, Virginia through to St. Paul, Minnesota.

Re: General Tool Discussion

Looks like I am getting the "ONCE AND FUTURE BAND" in Hamilton. Anyone have any input on them?

I know who The Crystal Method is but I have no idea about the other one.

Re: General Tool Discussion

Here is an article on them: https://glidemagazine.com/179341/future-band/

Sounds interesting to me....

With Once & Future Band, they corral Pink Floyd-style psychedelia, virtuosic rock, and sparkling prog pop into dramatic fare that recalls certain icons of the eight-track-era -- and rarely just one of them at a time. Advanced study of Yes, Queen, the aforementioned Floyd, and later Beatles, just for starters, is revealed on "I'll Be Fine," with its mantra of "Love is in the air." Bold harmonies, trippy keyboards and vocal effects, drum and guitar solos, and melodic hooks mark the meandering six-and-a-half-minute master class. It pales in comparison, though -- by no fault or lack of its own -- to the lead track and single, "How Does It Make You Feel?" A surge of melody, color, rhythm, and flamboyance with no small debt to ELO, the song introduces Once & Future Band with enough fanfare to provoke the envy of many a peacock and statesman. Robinow's vocals move in and out of effects, vibrato, octaves, keys, and time signatures in the course of the song, yet are often overshadowed by elaborate drumming and downright rapturous keyboards and guitar. While remaining in a dynamic range, the album offers some variety, too. "Rolando," for instance, gets super jazz-funky with doses of brass and "wah-wah," to reference the George Harrison tune. There are only seven tracks on the album, but few listeners are likely to feel short-changed given 38 minutes of densely packed tunefulness, and the chops to pull it all off.

Re: General Tool Discussion

lol I was looking forward to hearing something brilliant after reading the article about the Once & Future Band. I listened to "How Does It Make You Feel?" and...meh. I feel I'll have some extra bar time before Tool hits the stage!

"Yeah Tool is fucking amazing. But there’s a big chunk of their fan base that think they’ve become thought provoking geniuses just from listening to them."

Re: General Tool Discussion

I can't imagine sitting through 3Teeth again. Don't know much about The Crystal Method but seems they are the better option this time around.

Wow, final APC show tonight. Got front row- can't wait! Then Tool fires it up in two and a half weeks. MJK is one busy dude.

Re: General Tool Discussion

It's looking like it should miss us tonight but I am coming prepared anyway for at least a light dusting.
