If I wasn't already going to New Orleans and Voodoo Fest - I'd be there in a heartbeat. (Halloween weekend in The Big Easy is not to be missed.)




Do you think that Tool Nation was holding out for more (non fest) shows??

Re: General Tool Discussion

I've been told by a rep from Monster Mash that the saturday headliners (Tool and Primus?) picked the unannounced bands.. I'm anxious to find out who it is.

Yes.

Also, I think people are waiting for a new album tour...instead of the same ol setlist tour.

I do really REALLY HOPE that they break out a new song or two tho.

Messaged the guys from WOATTS and congratulated them, how cool! They are an incredibly nice, hard working band. Wishing everyone who got tickets a great time!

While I'm not one to knock back an opportunity to see them live again, I kinda wish they'd just get on with it and hit the studio.

The expected announcement date for Soundwave will be the end of September, so does correspond with the announcement Blair hinted at in the last newsletter. Maybe they're going to announce more than one thing though?

Hellboy, if this is a tour wouldn't it be the 7th without a new album? They've toured every year since 2009 - 2015/2016.

Re: General Tool Discussion

The festival organiser now seems to be suggesting Tool won't be playing (not that they were ever confirmed, it's just speculation), so who knows what's going on. We'll know for sure in a couple of weeks.

Also, from memory Tool have toured Oz in 2007, 2011 and 2013.

Re: General Tool Discussion

wow not Tool related but the Holy Grail of heavy metal/ hard rock bootlegs has surfaced on Dime.

I never (ever) thought I would live to hear BLack Sabbath Dumfries 69.

Word is Ozzy bought up the master and only copy and was either going to bury it, or release it down the road..


Now it's been leaked on the day that tickets went osale for their farewell tour. HMMMMMMMM

Re: General Tool Discussion

Can't wait for the Monsters Mash festival.

I'm wondering if Tool will play a new song in this show? It could happen but i am not sure how they would feel to see a lot of cameras recording a performance of a brand new song.

I just listened to The Grudge and that song would fit very well as the opener for the upcoming festival.

Re: General Tool Discussion

I think many here would be very happy to see The Grudge return to the setlist, though I suspect it's unlikely.

I can't see them playing a new song.

Re: General Tool Discussion

^agreed and if they do it's only going to be an instrumental snippet at best, thinking a 10k return setlist but optimistic for surprises either way stoked for the show! Second day fingers crossed for passenger!! I must mention though in the VIP session last Tool tour I asked our host (mike, carlos? Can't remember his name but he did a lot of deftones tour stuff before Tool) if there is a passenger chance in the future and he said not likely because when Maynard did live with them it totally threw him off by the different live performance atmosphere between the two bands (Tool/Deftones...IEM/live stage monitors..something to that effect). Also to the matter that in Hellboys woods during BDO when both bands played the same festival the collaboration never happened. But we all can definitely hope! Plus Ghost!? Happy Arizonian here! Azbay out!

I'm looking forward to the Oz tour. I don't live there, but they always seem to put on a great show, and more often than not we get some nice bootleg videos on youtube. Them playing with Rammstein a few years back was great fun, and the last tour had some great new material teasers (Jambi modular synth intro, new Schism intro, Lateralus breakdown).

I dunno if they'd bust out The Grudge but I do expect some songs they haven't played in a while. Maybe H.? Something fresh from Undertow? Right in Two? I'm optimistic.

tool will not play a new song at this festival. if you're attending expecting that, you're going to go home disappointed.

Ok, most of this thread is TLDR so maybe this has been asked before, but what is the latest on the new album?

tool was working on it 7+ years ago. Here is a quick overview of the issues:

__________________________________________________ ___________

maynard started making some alcoholic beverages.

maynard started making some funky comedy music in his spare time.

tool needed to make sure they still remembered how to play Jambi so they toured 10 more times making sure to play Jambi each time.

tool was involved a lawsuit which kept Adam's brother busy. apparently this slowed down the "creative process"

maynard threw a big birthday party which killed some more time.

danny carey had his first child.

tool also weren't sure if Schism and 46+2 have been played enough live. more tours to share these rare songs with the world!

some more time (research and development) went into creating a special tool-branded towel that was exclusively available for die-hard tool fans.

according to adam, a band member had a "really fucked up" medical issue which also delayed the process.

apparently Justin saw the cover of Sober by the band "Staind" (it's on youtube). this caused a 3 month long depressive state which halted any writing of the bass components of the new album

oh, and most importantly - some asshole douche recorded a VIP session which caused much stress and emotional hardship on all members, especially Adam, which further delayed the creative process of the new album.

They have a couple of songs written and stuff recorded, but need to finish writing and recording the album. Puscifer is doing a Fall/Winter tour. Tool may go back to work on the new album next spring. No time any sooner than that I believe.

to be fair, that was an exclusive deal. you can't take a camcorder into a movie theater. it's essentially the same principle. if anyone can record it and enjoy it, then why even make it for VIPs only? you got caught. let it go. let go. let go. let go. let go. let gooo!

tool was involved a lawsuit which kept Adam's brother busy. apparently this slowed down the "creative process"

maynard threw a big birthday party which killed some more time.

danny carey had his first child.

tool also weren't sure if Schism and 46+2 have been played enough live. more tours to share these rare songs with the world!

some more time (research and development) went into creating a special tool-branded towel that was exclusively available for die-hard tool fans.

according to adam, a band member had a "really fucked up" medical issue which also delayed the process.

apparently Justin saw the cover of Sober by the band "Staind" (it's on youtube). this caused a 3 month long depressive state which halted any writing of the bass components of the new album

oh, and most importantly - some asshole douche recorded a VIP session which caused much stress and emotional hardship on all members, especially Adam, which further delayed the creative process of the new album.
Wow dude, thanks for the overview! I knew about some of the issues but not all of them.

Just watch this, https://youtu.be/BJtLwp53lII

Re: General Tool Discussion

New interview with Maynard over at Rolling Stone Magazine. No news on the Tool album, but some exciting insight in the differences writing for Puscifer, in my opinion (I'm a music nerd and a journalist, so this is great). The article is a little bit more politically-inclined for my taste. I enjoy hearing about his views on life and such, but he sounds like a curmudgeon here. Certainly not the fault of the reporter--it sounds like they were directing the interview based on what he went into, and that's the way it goes, I imagine especially so with people like Maynard who are notoriously difficult to interview. Anyway, in case you all hadn't caught it from Fourtheye, thought you might be interested. Take care.

I always like to hear what MJK has to say and when I was reading that interview, I kept thinking that was what his interviews sounded like around right around when Lateralus came out.

One can hope...
