Wow, looks like they added another SF date. Unfortunately they're on weeknights so there's no way :(

APC released a new one-off single that's really popular. Seems like they really want to make more music, but maybe aren't because Tool is working on a new one.

Iv been diggin the newer Puscifer cd. Conditions of my Parole. The first puscifer cd was pretty shitty, other then Momma Sed. But Conditions is so much better. The songs are of high quality, and feel like they were actually crafted with a lot of effort. I assume Maynard played the main role in writing the music, rather then just doing vocals. With Tool and APC he has no role in writing actual music. I read an interview from when 10k days was released where he seemed disappointed with the direction Adam and co. had taken with the music.

I was disappointed with his lyrics. His lyrics for Rosetta stoned turned the song into kind of a joke song. I love the theme of mystical and hallucinatory experiences, but not if it's just a joke.

I still think Rosetta Stoned is an incredibly awesome song. But with less silly lyrics it could have been even more.

What do you guys think of Undertown? I got into it after Lateralus and Aenima, so i was turned off at first. But now I think it's pretty impressive. Quite different and more straightforward then what they ended up doing after. Prison Sex is a great songs, I'm surprised Sober ended up being a way bigger hit then it.

I think Rosetta Stoned is a great song but it goes on for a bit too long, they should of ended it right after that huge climax.

Undertow is great, it's more a collection of songs, but really great songs.

It almost sounds like you think slightly less of it for not being a concept or themed album. If I misread that, forgive me.

Undertow is good, but not my favorite,  I enjoy 4, Undertow, Swamp Song and the hidden track Disgustipated.


Also, I like Rosetta Stoneds lyrics. It's a funny story of this guy whom was told about things but couldn't remember shit. Its all told in a hospital room as well, so maybe he actually did shit the bed. The song is a nice ying-yang from Third Eye.

I liked how Rosetta Stoned led up to a climax, like the song Lateralus, except totally different.... Not as rewarding, but still a great climax. Like someone said, it may have been better if they ended it after the climax. I'v never had an experience listening to a song like the first time I heard Lateralus from start to finish. The way it builds- just amazing.

I feel like Lateralus the album is somewhat of a concept album, even if it isn't. I may have said this before, but I feel like the album deals with spiritual themes, the soul, and other metaphysical-like ideas. I love that fuckin album. I don't think Tool can ever top it. I feel like they can't go any further mucsically, like Lateralus was the album everything led up to. I hope the do something more amazing and something you could never think of on their next one.

Does anyone else remember sometime after 10000 Days was released and the band was touring that there was talk of Tool releasing a live DVD, and how people were seeing professional camera's filming their live shows? Didn't Adam Jones ever address this?

I know a Tool DVD would be amazing, because Jones would not let it be anything less. He has film experience himself, and lots of other creative talent with visual arts. I doubt it would just be a live performance, although that would be amazing. They should at least let one of their filmed shows be released on DVD, and if they have a desire to do something more with another DVD then work on another DVD!!!

I wonder if Alex Grey will be doing the art for their next album. I fucking love what he did with Lateralus and 10k. The Vicarious video is one of the coolest things I've ever seen.

Maynard said there will never be a Tool album because :

" Then people will come to the shows expecting cool angles and zooms "

 :facepalm:






Because that's what I expect every time I go to a gig and I wonder why my eyes can't zoom in and switch between members.

Tool is incredibly popular it seems. If memory serves me right, 10000 days reached #1 and stayed there for quite awhile. That's awesome. I'd say they're like the new pink Floyd, although musically they're more similar to King Crimson or Sabbath.

Anyone ever listen to the first 30seconds to mars album? It's very different from their newer stuff, and is something that will appeal more to fans of bands like Tool, and progressive Space Metal (new subgenre?)

idk about being musically similar to PF or BS...probs some king crimson, though im not familiar w enough of their material.

as for progressive space metal, i'd say the term's been used a bunch. Amplifier, who can actually sound a hell of a lot like tool when they wanna, would definitely fit into that category.

I'v seen a few video's on youtube listed New Tool or something like that. Of course they're fake, but some of them capture that Tool sound really well. I'd say it would be cool in a way if some of the people doing that stuff actually made a complete album imitating Tool. They could get one of those Maynard-wannabe vocalists, like the guy from Chevelle.

Here’s a sentence eight years in the making: Tool have finished their new studio album.

According to Crave Online, guitarist Adam Jones has confirmed that the long-awaited follow-up to 2006′s 10,000 Days is ”100% done” and should arrive later this year.

In an interview with Loudwire last summer, drummer Danny Carey insinuated that some outside forces were holding up the album’s release. ”We could have the record finished by the end of the year – that’s a possibility, but the logistics of getting it manufactured and getting the record company in line and all this stuff, I doubt we’ll be able to get it out before Christmas. We’ll see how it goes. Most likely, it’ll be early 2014.”

Meanwhile, frontman Maynard James Keenan spoke about the band’s intricate recording process in an interview with Rolling Stone last November. ”I don’t write the music. They write the music,” he said of his bandmates. “I wait for them to bring music to me. They tend to go back over and over stuff. It’s a long process. For a person like me, it can be a very tedious process.”

Keenan continued, ”In some ways, they are bigger perfectionists. But you can only help support their talent so long. They don’t have to go through it 700 times. They can trust that first thought. But that’s their process, so you gotta let them do it.” And is that process happening? “I couldn’t tell you.”

Tool is currently touring the U.S., their first such jaunt in two years. Thus far, they’ve stuck to the greatest hits.

I know it says it right there, but I find this hard to believe.

Even if they have finished it, I doubt we'll see it this year.
