As Blair hinted at in the January 2017 newsletter, he has also updated the one from September 2016. For those with short memories, September 2016 was the infamous “positive thinking” one. Blair mentions recent interviews with Justin, Danny’s appearance on the Seth Meyers show and even Adam at recent VIP outings as good evidence that the next Tool album is indeed a thing.
I doubt this is changing anyone’s mind though – I don’t expect that any of the skeptics are going to change their mind. I for one am content to wait for whatever may come. I’m obviously a huge Tool fan, but life is not so empty that a lack of Tool albums becomes an object of scorn or hate.
Instead I look forward to seeing Puscifer here in Adelaide in a couple of nights time (there’s even a free wine tasting in town before hand). I’ll continue to enjoy the large number of quality releases from other artists. Code Orange may have already released an album I might have on my top 10 of 2017 (we’ll see in 12 months time I guess!)
