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:

Read into that what you will…

New Album and Comic details from Guitar World

According to there is some further information to be garnished from the recent Guitar World interview:

It’s been coming along…great! [laughs] No, we’ve been on hiatus. I’m writing and [bassist] Justin [Canchellor]’s been writing, but [frontman] Maynard [James Keenan] has been working on his wine. We’ve all just been taking some time away from each other, which has been nice. I’ve also been working on producing some comics.

Not sure why Ganjalf didn’t mention this part the other day…

More Salival on Ebay

Rumour: Lollapalooza 2009

According to Mitch123 on Toolarmy, there is some speculation that Tool might be headlining this years Lollapalooza Festival.  Not a shred of evidence to back this up as far as I can see, so don’t go booking your plan tickets just yet…

The Pot video coming soon…

Ganjalf contacted me today and told me that according to the recent Guitar World interview:

Jones: We’re working on “The Pot,” but i’ve been really lazy lately. The setup for it is a lot more epic, so it’s actually good that we’ve been able to have more time. It’s going to be all stop-motion and in 3D. We’re doing that so we can hopefully have it show in the theater.

Not sure how he actually got this info, since the magazine hasn’t been released yet.  Will confirm this once I am able to read a copy of the interview myself.

Salival on Ebay, Trujillo Loves Tool

Another copy of the Signed Salival DVD has worked it’s way onto Ebay.  Current bidding puts it at US$102.50, and I’d expect this to go up a reasonable amount over the next 9 days.

According to current Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo loves Tool:

“My four-year-old boy loves TOOL!” Trujillo told “When I take him to school, we’re playing TOOL all the time, so I definitely connect with them. There’s a lot of bass in that group which is nice. They’re a great band for a bass player to listen to. So believe it or not, my son and I are going through a big TOOL phase!”

He added, “I go through these real technical phases, and I listen to bands like MESHUGGAH and MNEMIC. It’s stuff that’s a little bit complex and takes a lot of patience. Lately, I’ve been jamming a lot to our music. I play through the new songs so I can keep fresh and keep them in my head. I can act crazier on stage if I can play them with proficiency.”

01. TOOL
