Ah, April Fools! In prior years I’ve been organised enough to do some fooling of my own, but this year instead I will reflect on what is increasingly becoming an irrelevant event. In these days of the internet, it takes a genuinely good post to fool anyone. Indeed many were predicting today would be the day Tool announce a new album.
While April 1 is not over, I personally think it’s unlikely Tool would announce and album, possibly their magnum opus, that they’ve worked on for over a decade in this manner. I don’t think that the myriad of fakes, both good and terrible are fooling anyone. People on the internet are generally to cynical and smart to be tricked this way
Of course, Tool did give us something:
Hopefully they will give us something more in the coming weeks….
