tentonmantra on Toolnavy mentions that Amazon.com has 10,000 Days on their site, complete with the album cover:
10,000 Days, Tool
10,000 Days, Releases, Tool

this isn’t relevant but someone made this post on tdn.
“i didnt see this mentioned on the boards yet, but i heard on the radio today in southern california that the first track “Vicarious” will be released to the radio on or before April 17th.”
everyone’s assumed “The Pot” but then again this may not be true. so I guess we’ll see. Maybe someone else heard it too? Just thought I’d post it though.

I still see “Fool”.
I honestly don’t mind the artwork as art, but as the album cover it contains too much disappointment. I just imagined something brand spanking new, not something recycled.
I would personally be happy if Vicarious was the first single purely on the basis of how the word sounds. I just can’t imagine hearing on JJJ for example “and next up we have ‘The Pot’ by Tool”.

i see fool also. possibly a dig at the fans. you know..the fans that only listen to nin and tool. i know. i was one of them. absolute fool i was. why tool is always associated with nin i have no idea. sooo fucking different…anyway…
who are you to want all new art? why dont you commision new artwork for tools next album if you’re that disapointed.
im sure this is still new to many people anyway, even existing tool fans..i didnt recognise it at first.. but then realised i have seen this before after i read some peoples comments… 5 years no tool..different audience this time round….this is what tool have chosen. they probably think this best depicts the albums sound/thenes. who knows. live with it.
i dont mind the artwork either. actually, i think its exceptional.

If the band submited false artwork to amazon, they may jsut be taking this ‘hoax’ a little too far. Come on guys, wise up.

BMB has left a message on toolband in regards to the artwork.

Like I said, as artwork it is amazing. But even when I first saw it it felt very familiar. You are right that everything with Tool has a purpose and judging the artwork without the music leaves an incomplete concept. But I still stand by my first reaction which was one of disappointment. I am just being honest.

consider the fact that this may be only a part of the artwork…

So the actual album cover does not include the titles. Thank god, they looked quite out of place.

ALBUM MINI NOW ON AMAZON AND OTHERS
Some of you may have seen the album mini for Tool’s 10,000 Days on Amazon and on other sites that was posted ONE DAY after we showed it to you on this site (which is what we expected, and why we posted it when we did). Now that it’s out there for all to see, hopefully some of you who have been asking what exactly an album mini is might have a better idea. For those who still don’t know, it’s what a business (such as Amazon) uses to advertise a new product (such as the new Tool CD). Okay? Now, I can hear some of you saying to yourself: “But why does the image on Amazon and the other sites have the logo and album title superimposed over the artwork… when the image on the Tool websites doesn’t?” The answer is quite simple. Because Amazon and others need to include the band’s name and album title along with the artwork so that potential customers will know whose CD it is (don’t ask me why). With that said, the image that we posted on the Tool websites is how this piece of artwork will actually look with the packaging. However, we also wanted to give you a look at the new logo, so we placed it above the album mini. Okay? Just one last thing for now: I’ve been reading many of the comments on the TA message board (as well as those flooding my in-box) about this particular piece of cover art, and I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate some of your personal thoughts and perceptive insight into the symbology and deeper levels of the striking imagery. It seems that a few of you (those who have commented on the artwork) are also anticipating ‘the bigger picture’ – that which you’ve become accustomed to over the years when it comes to Tool’s art direction. Well, to you, I will only say that you will not be disappointed… and that the key is right there before your very eyes.

So I guess Amazon didn’t require name / title to be on the album graphics back in the old days of Undertow / Aenima / etc … but I guess that was a “long time ago” and before the internet… damn Tool takes a long time to generate music…

It could be that the album title is real but the tracklist and artwork is fake. But only 6 days left til we find out with the deal is…
