I managed to miss this one yesterday, but Danny Carey has said apparently to Launch:

“We truly are an alternative band,” Danny said. “It’s an alternative to what other people label as alternative, that actually all sounds the same or whatever. And I think people can identify that and they can relate to it, and they desire the real thing when it’s available. You just gotta stick to your laurels and believe in what you’re doing, and not do it for money, do it for the art of it, then you can’t lose.”

Thanks to Blabbermouth.net for that.

Also, according to TheRuleOfThree on Toolnavy a TA member (I don’t know who) posted that Alex Grey included the latest Album-Mini in his newsletter, and mentioned that it is some of his work on the new Album. Will be interesting to see what else is in the artwork.
