Just as I was about to write a rant about Tool have let their fans down with a lack of communication, Adam posts a grab on Instagram which teases their often previewed live track Descending. All of a sudden my anger has subsided somewhat.
Many hoped that we’d see some new songs played at the upcoming shows (the first of which is on Sunday), with probably just as many expecting more of the same setlist. I have no real insight into what I think might actually happen, but this video gives me some hope that we might actually see the full version of Descending (or whatever it’s actual name is) played this tour.
What would really be cool? If Tool decided to debut both the live version of the song, and make the recorded version available at the same time. That way we can avoid resorting to hunting down the inevitable phone camera recordings.
