  • Mikkey Dee of all people has confirmed that Tool are in the studio, and for those wondering why Mikkey Dee is the bearer of this news, well it appears that Motorhead are working on their follow up to AFTERSHOCK in the same studio as Tool.

  • At least something is definitely happening. Can see it being a 2016 release.

  • Tool caution fans who have “negative attitudes” about new album
    This newsletter is about positive thinking versus negative thinking. It’s also about cleansing negative energy and boosting positive energy. When it comes to the subject of the new Tool album, even though those whose negative thoughts and actions (running from pessimistic to antagonistic) are in the small minority, their negative attitudes are having consequences that extend far beyond the next Tool record (I will provide a perfect example of this later on). And though their hostile behavior and small-mind opinions are not helping in bringing about the next Tool record in any way, shape or form, they are also not fooling anyone by saying that: “They are tired of waiting for an album and jumping ship”, or “They’ve had enough and are over this band.” Or, my all time favorite: “After being Tool’s biggest fan for 19 years, I am now disavowing my favorite band.” Oh really? Please tell me then – why is it that those who complain the loudest are almost always the first to comment negatively on any given post? It’s as if they are just sitting at their computer – day and night – waiting for any piece of news so that they can pounce with their cynical viewpoint. By doing so, they invalidate all their disavowing! To any psychiatrist worth their $$$, this would be clearly evident. (How much do psychiatrists charge? Being that I am what I would call “ultra-sane”, I really wouldn’t know.) Okay, now that this has been firmly established, allow me to give those of you whose inclination tends towards the negative an example of… positive thinking!

    It happened at a local Arby’s fast food restaurant. Although we didn’t originally intend on going there for lunch, but, rather, just materialized there, my companion LaraLee and I suddenly found ourselves placing our food order. A few minutes later when we sat down with our trays, LaraLee realized that the guy at the register got her order wrong. Instead of the Jr. Ham and Cheese that she ordered (Arby’s is now offering healthy deli-style sandwiches as an alternative to the logs of shaved mystery meat that even dogs step back from), she got a Jr. Beef, Bacon, and Cheese. Also, rather than the side of Curley Fries that she wanted, she got their Potato Cakes. In other words, her entire order was completely wrong! (Well, not entirely, but it would be really hard for him to **** up the drink since he just gives you an empty cup that you fill yourself).

    Hearing this, I was about to storm the counter and get ignorant with the guy. But, I restrained myself. Realizing that Las Vegas ranks 49th from the top in school funding, I decided to cut him some slack. (Besides those glitzy casinos help pay for our well-maintained roads, and it was the soul-crushing traffic on buckled asphalt that caused us to consider moving from L.A., – the deciding factor being after noticing that the guy stuck on the 405 along side of us was reading a publication entitled, “A Guide To Potholes & Other Street Dangers.”) Just when I though that I was going to take the brunt of the Arby’s guy’s error, something rather amazing happened. It turned out that LaraLee really liked the sandwich, in fact, much more so than what she ordered! She also became a big fan of the potato cakes – right there on the spot – and said that she would order them along with the same sandwich the next time we materialized there.

    So, far from being the dunce that I figured him to be (my negative attitude), the Arby’s counter guy was the perfect man for the position – knowing more about what people want to eat than they know, themselves! Indeed, he was someone who had really found his niche in life – as well as a living testament to the changing, improving Arby’s fast food chain! He could even be considered a genius when it comes to certain people and the fast food they want! Therefore, we were both rewarded on that day by my not going ballistic on him because the order was completely ‘wrong’ (my positive energy!), and drove home on quality roads…

    But, getting back to the next Tool album – what’s there to be positive about, you ask? Well plenty of things, actually, with the first being that there is going to be a new Tool album. As you sit behind your computer, about to pounce with your nay saying, don’t take my word for it. (I haven’t been to the rehearsal space in many months, and have still only heard the lengthy ‘epic’ song and parts of several others that I mentioned in previous newsletters.) Instead, take the band members’ word for it.

  • That really doesn't tell us much, other than that it's probably still a long way off if Maynard (I assume he's the author of the newsletter?) hasn't been to the studio in a long time and has only heard a few songs.

    It's funny, I always thought he'd be someone to not give a f*ck about what people think, yet this really reads like people bad mouthing/complaining gets under his skin.

  • Meshuggah have apparently heard demos, and it's their best stuff yet!

    I do get the feeling this will be one which will just drop, take everyone by surprise. How I'd love to wake up to the Spotify notification that the new Tool album has landed(if they ever put their stuff up there).

    Think it was the band's webmaster with their permission who authored the letter

    From what I can remember, from back in my days as a Tool obsessive, the author of the newsletter is Blair, webmaster of the website and someone connected somehow to the band.

    I also think that the entire thing is a pisstake, they always liked taking the piss out of peoples attitudes and expectations regarding their long periods of downtime.

    Being honest, I wouldn't be expect anything for them anytime. Maynard seems to have so many other projects on the go - a vinyard, Puscifer., etc,etc. I always got the feeling, that reading between the lines, getting to work on that new album was well down from the top on his to-do list.

    Ah cool, I didn't know that.

    I agree about it being way down Maynards list. I can deal with that as I really love the new Puscifer album. I'm just glad he's still making some music. It will be interesting to hear the new Tool stuff when it finally comes out.

  • I hear every time someone bitches about the new album, the band put production back 1 day

  • MAYNARD WORKING ON VOCALS
    In speaking with Danny last night, he told me that the band has temporarily MOVED some of their gear into a larger space (across town) where MAYNARD is working on VOCALS for some of the new Tool material. I'm sure that he has already been doing this to some extent, but now he has more room to breathe and a better vocal booth.




  • New album release date?
