Isis schedule NZ Gigs

Isis, who are coming down to Australia for the Soundwave Festival, have lined up a couple of gigs in New Zealand.  One in Auckland, and another in Wellington - too bad Southern Islanders!

The gigs are:

  • SFBH, Wellington (18+), Monday February 15th
  • Transmission Room, Auckland (All Ages and Licensed) Tuesday February 16th

Tickets go on sale August 24th from Moshtix (0800MOSHTIX, www.moshtix.co.nz and Real Groovy) and www.undertheradar.co.nz.

According to Aaron HarrisTwitter account, there should be some Isis solo gigs in February, though at this stage I’d suggest we’re talking about Sydney and Melbourne only.

Isis interview on Triple J

I’ve just finished listening to a brief interview with Aaron Turner from Isis, recorded by Andrew Haug for Triple J’s The Racket program (presumably what Three Hours Of Hour/Full Metal Racket is now called).  Was a short interview, doesn’t really reveal a massive amount we don’t know, but he does discuss how Adam came to be involved in the record.  It appears it mainly happened because Adam and Aaron Harris frequently play Halo 3 together.

I was hoping that perhaps there might be a hint of an Australian tour, but there wasn’t.  The interview can be streamed here, and starts at about the 51 minute mark.

News Catch-Up!

I’ve been away for a few days, and have missed out on several little bits and pieces of Tool related news. No tour news though, which is what people really want!

Firstly, Maynard appears in the new movie Crank 2, which also features Danny Lohner, Mike Patton doing the soundtrack, and some dude from Linkin Park.  Thanks to Ziggy and AZB for the tips.

In another movie related item, apparently The Taking of Pelham 123 will have an A Perfect Circle remix appearing on the soundtrack.  Cheers Hurtfrog!

Maynard tweeted a couple of times, alluding to being in certain places at certain times.  Possibly Tool, everything is as vague as you’d expect:

Oakland/Fox Theater? Seattle/Moore Theater? June? Anything is possible.

And

Wine events coming to the Midwest, NorthEast and SouthEast. But No Puscifer shows in those areas yet. Sorry. Soon. Hold please.

And

Possible dates in the NorthWest.

Aaron Harris from Isis confirms the tracks that Adam appears on Wavering Radiant:

Aaron continued to explain the exact contribution Adam Jones did on ‘Waving radiant, “He just did some guitar and its not gonna be that recognizable, its not your typical guitar sounds. I think he used an ebo and effects. But it still has that signature Adam Jones sound to it.”

Now on what tracks does Adam Jones play what Aaron describes as “a whole fading frog sound”? The opening song ‘Hall of the Dead’ and the instrumental title track ‘Waving Radiant’.

That’s all for now – some news in regards to the Fourtheye shirts will be coming soon!
