Another quick weekly update for the Fourtheye faithful!  If you’re one of those lucky enough to go to a Tool show/clinic in the next week and want to avoid spoilers, you should stop reading!

In this weeks edition:

  • Billy & Maynard Wig shopping
  • Setlists and Q&A from Tool Music Clinics
  • New music- Wrong, Skinless, Rivers of Nihil, Sleep

Billy & Maynard Wig shopping

Maynard James Keenan and Billy Howerdel from A Perfect Circle have filmed a short, somewhat funny video for Revolver where they joke around in a wig shop.  It’s not really champagne comedy, but worth a watch.

Setlists and Q&A from Tool Music Clinics

There’s a bunch of posts on Reddit which goes into detail what happened at the recent Tool Music Clinics.  For the most part they sound like a cross between the standard Tool VIP experience, and an intimate instrumental only show.  There’s a pretty cool Mega Thread happening on Reddit which covers and range of questions asked at the first clinic.  Some interesting snippets of info!

At the Northern Invasion Tool show last night, the setlist was more or less the same as we’ve seen the last few years, with a nice addition of Sober.  No doubt a range of videos will pop up on Youtube over the coming days.  Adi Granov provided the artwork for the show.  I’d wager that the show next weekend will have the same artwork

Here’s a few links worth checking out:

New music worth checking out!

  • Do you like Helmet? Wrong sound a lot like an old, angry version of that band, and their albums strays very close to out right copying them at times. They have a new album called Feel Great, and great it is!

  • Skinless are a pretty hard hitting death metal band.  Brutal even.  Their latest album Savagery is a great listen for fans of the genre

  • Also in the Death Metal genre are Rivers of Nihil, though they have a bit more of a prog metal thing going.  Their latest Where Owls Know My Name is well worth a listen!

  • Stoner metal legends Sleep surprised us with an album about the same time as A Perfect Circle released theirs.  You can stream The Sciences here.
