April Fools

April Tools!

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….

Yet another Tool studio update!

No April Fooling this year from me, as I haven’t been organised.  Tool did have an April Fools of sort, but since it was studio footage it wasn’t quite as foolish as it could be.  Here’s a link to the video on Dropbox (I’m sure someone will upload it to Youtube in due time).  Unsure at this point whether or not they are videoing parts of the recording process (for possible release) or if that’s just part of the joke.  Time will tell I guess!

We’ve had a number of updates via social media over the last few weeks, and I’ve thrown together a quick Imgur page which collects most of the studio photos I’ve come across.  Feel free to suggest any that I’ve missed and I’ll add them in!

The most recent studio photos come from Al Jones, who some of you may recognise as Adam’s brother.
