The June 2016 Tool Newsletter has been released, and for those who want to get straight to the point it contains no obvious significant Tool update.  Instead it recounts a recent trip to Death Valley for a cover photo for a forthcoming Danny Carey book.

Here’s the Tool bit:

“What about the newsletter?
I have to get back home to post the Tool Newsletter.”

Having climbed out of the idling pickup, my friend examined my tire rock placement and then gauged the distance to the edge of the steep drop off. After which, he patted me on my back before jumping back into the Ford, shouting out the window:

“Everyone knows that the band is still working on their new record, and that there’s really no other major news other than that.”

“No, you’re wrong. There are certain things that people need to know about. Things that finally need to be revealed – concerning the new record and other band related matters. Things that I’ve been holding back… for years… because I felt that I had to, but now it’s time to make them public. Only, we’re stuck in this desert hellhole… up to our lug nuts in burning sand…”

Maybe the next newsletter will be more revealing, though I feel like we’ve heard that before a few times!
