Information about Toolarmy

Tool January Newsletter

Blair released the Tool January Newletter today, despite the fact it’s February.  It talks about, and includes a picture of a bug found in a readers Vicarious DVD, and includes a vision, which may or may not mean something.  Not sure what to make of it, but the reference to various Toolarmy Ranks and so on could have some meaning.  Change coming to the website soon perhaps?

There’s also a picture of Danny at the recent NBA All-Stars game.  Looks like he could only get a seat in the nosebleed section!

Volto! gig, Pigmy pictures, ‘Busy” band members

Blair posted several updates to Toolband/Army today.  The first lot where a bunch of pictures from the recent Pigmy Love Circus gig.  Some nice work there with several shots take by Danny‘s girlfriend RynneToolarmy members get a close up of Danny in action.

Also mentioned is that there is a Volto! gig coming up on Friday the 6th of March at the Knitting Factory in Hollywood.  Blair mentions it will be the last Volto! gig for a while:

as certain band members might be busy with other projects in the months ahead.

Read into that what you will…

Signed Salival DVD’s Sold Out

To no ones surprise the Signed Salival DVD‘s sold on on Toolarmy for US$200 at around 4:00 PST in less than a minute.  Vuduchild (who was lucky enough to score one) sent me this pic which was posted on Toolarmy:

Let the bitching about the price of an item you weren’t forced to buy commence…

Signed Salival DVD’s on Sale Soon!

A Toolarmy Exclusive post today from Blair revealed that a hidden stash of Salival DVD‘s has been found in the Tool warehouse, and that 33 of these have been signed by the band recently and will be sold to Toolarmy members this Xmas.  These DVD’s (price unknown at the moment) will go on sale in the Toolarmy Bazaar sometime this Friday.

According to Blair’s description:

unlike the earlier ones, this time each DVD was individually SIGNED BY ALL FOUR BAND MEMBERS (with Adam also providing some original art ‘doodles’ on many of the cases).

Also:

“no”, this is not “the big thing.”

Apparently pictures, pricing and shipping details will be posted soon.

Toolband Updates

A couple of Toolband updates came out this morning….

Firstly Volto! (featuring Danny) are playing on the 21st of August at the Baked Potato.  Check them out if you’re in LA.

Secondly Blair posted a somewhat cryptic message accompanied by a picture of a smashed laptop courtesy of Maynard.  Despite the message to not speculate, I’ve been wondering for some time if the Tool website, and or Toolarmy are due for an update.  Perhaps the smashed PC is a hidden message.

Or maybe Maynard just got a really bad virus infection….

Right In Two Lyrics

The lyrics for the 10,000 Days track Right In Two are now available on Toolarmy as a TA Exclusive, which means I won’t be posting them here.

June 2008 Newsletter

As promised, Blair released the June 2008 newsletter, and this time it contains some “details” of what’s up in the Tool world. Head over to Toolband/Army to read it, but here’s my summary.

Adam is:

  • working on some undisclosed entertainment industry related project? Guitar Hero perhaps?
  • also involved in the construction of some future band-related endeavor. Building a recording studio perhaps?
  • Spending time playing Halo 3 and watching Baseball games with Buzz

Danny is:

  • spending lots of time in his loft studio gearing up for some music-related enterprise. Writing new material? Pigmy Love Circus record?
  • performing with Volto!
  • writing a book with Blair
  • other stuff including driving his lamborghini, painting his house, etc.

Justin is:

  • building a new house
  • working on new Tool riffs
  • possibly working on another musical project
  • revamping Lobal Orning at some point

Maynard is:

  • working on wine and Puscifer as outlined on his Myspace site
  • hopefully looking after his vocal chords

Tool are:

  • working to complete a couple of new projects
  • one of these is very close to becoming a reality

So there you have it. No detail really, but we didn’t expect that.

Two Tool Projects

Blair from Toolband/Army took some time today to “clarify” an email he received questioning the April Newsletter – the one about the business meeting. Here’s his response:

That mentioned in the April (1) newsletter had NOTHING to do with the
all-Tool issue of “Revolver” Magazine, although at this time I am still
not able to disclose any further information about any decision made by
the band as to whether it’s a go or not. It’s my belief, however, that
if it is a go, this will most likely be leaked on the Net before I get
a chance to post it. Perhaps it already has been (I’m not really sure).
Also, with regards to my last ToolArmy exclusive, that involves an
entirely different project that is most definitely a go (Again, please
be patient).

The last ToolArmy exclusive, was Camella’s picture of the sunset, and the “good things are coming” line.

For me, this post would suggest that there is perhaps a good reason to expect some more tour dates. I can’t imagine some kind of recording would leak online before they would post news of it, and in the past tour dates have been leaked before they are officially confirmed.

The second project I’d speculate is some kind of change or update to Toolarmy, hence the Toolarmy exclusive. Maybe work is afoot to update the site. I guess we’ll find out eventually.

What do you guys reckon is going on?

Tool Tour Rumour

According to dirtyrockstar on Toolarmy, he heard them saying that Tool would be on tour soon on 97.1 (FM I presume) in Dallas. Apparently the station will be giving away tickets.

Not too sure about this to be honest. I’d like it to be true, but I don’t know that I’d expect Tool to tour again until after a new album had been released. Unless of course they’re recorded something in secret and will surprise us NIN style, but I kinda doubt that too.

Relax…

According to an exclusive Toolarmy post:

Good things are coming… Be patient… Don’t speculate… Good things are coming… Just relax…

The post is accompanied by a picture take by Camella of a couple of deck-chairs on the beach, possibly sometime around sunset. I have no idea what this means. Should I or shouldn’t I speculate….
