Adam’s Myspace

It looks like Adam has updated some stuff on his Myspace site.  Nothing too exciting, just a couple of pics of his work.  He also apparently had this to say:

Vicarious Video Details

Since the truth is now out there, I’ll reveal what I know about the Vicarious video.  It’s not much really.  Here’s a copy of the letter I was forwarded over a week ago now, and sworn to secrecy:


It’s with great excitement that we announce Tool’s long-awaited “Vicarious” DVD, featuring the unreleased video “Vicarious” and other content, will be released December 18 2007.

As always with Tool, exact packaging details are hush-hush, but if you look at “10,000 Days” packaging you won’t be too far off.

Due to this special packaging, the DVD package in its entirety will be manufactured here in the U.S. for the World . Parts for local manufacture will not be available. This DVD will be manufactured in NTSC only, which we’re told is now playable on virtually all players worldwide.

Product details are below…
Catalogue#:               82876878169
Format:                   NTSC DVD
Finished good unit cost:      US$2.50 excluding freight
U.S. retail price:           US$12.98

To ensure we have enough stock for your orders we need an estimation of your initial order and 30, 60, 90 day stock needs. We recommend your initial order covers the first 3 months of this release, not only due to strong consumer demand but also lengthy manufacturing times and expected unit cost increases on smaller worldwide reorders.

Please submit your estimates to me by Tuesday October 16. Official orders will be requested through normal production channels at a later date, we just need an accurate estimate right now to get the ball rolling.

Tool continue their massive two year tour with dates in the U.S. and Canada through December. Maynard James Keenan’s alter-ego project, Puscifer, is out October 30. For those wishing to advertise the “Vicarious” DVD prerelease, a gentle reminder that Tool and Puscifer cannot be marketed together. This restriction includes an inability to tag the Tool DVD release on Puscifer advertising – meaning I don’t want to see an ad for a Vicarious Vagina!

Also, in Alex Greys latest newsletter:

Adam Jones, the lead guitar and filmmaker of TOOL has been working with Alex Grey on Vicarious, the first music video from TOOL’s 10,000 Days album. Scheduled for release shortly before Christmas 2007, the video features Jone’s signature surreal and dark dream vision blended with Grey’s glimpses into a brighter world. Stay tuned for release dates and pre-release screenings.

Looking forward to hearing more details about the release.

Vicarous DVD in December

Looks like the rumours were true…

Blair just posted:

My friends, we can no longer hide the terrible truth. The holidays are rapidly approaching, and with them the NEW TOOL DVD/VIDEO for VICARIOUS is scheduled to be released on DECEMBER 18th (or 19th) and will include an EXTENDED CUT, lots of BONUS MATERIAL and, of course, SPECIAL PACKAGING. Here’s a sneak preview of a working still.

The working still shows as that the video is CGI as promised, at least partially.   Who wants to have a guess as to what the bonus material will be.  More Lustmord remixes?  Commentries? Live videos?

And what’s this about an extended cut.  A longer version of the video than the one to be release to MTV?  Or an even longer version of Vicarious?

I’m sure more details will come in the next month.

Vicarious DVD on the way?

Yaz on Toolarmy posts that Japanese retail is showing that a Vicarious DVD will be release on the 6th of September. No images or further information was made available, so your guess is as good as mine as to what actually appears. For those with short memories it was rumoured a while ago that the DVD may contain a Wings For Marie/10,000 Days video and/or some live footage.

Tour Dates, Vicarious Video Update

Blair‘s posted plenty of new tour dates on Toolband, including some East Coast US Dates, and some more European dates. Also confirmed was that Tool will be playing in Athens in December, though the venue is TBA. Apollo has blessed you.

There’s been lots of interest in the Vicarious video, and when it would be released. In response to this, Chronographer on Toolarmy posted a link to an interview with Adam, where he says they needed to hire a new CGI Team, with the implication that the onld one was crap. Expect the video (and DVD?) later this year…..

Lustmord Songs of Gods and Demons

A recent post on Toolband this morning highlights the new release from Lustmord Songs of Gods and Demons that is now available from his website.  While Lustmord’s work is quite interesting, what’s even more interesting to Tool fans is this snippet:

The CD includes "The Blasted Plain", the companion piece to the music Lustmord did for the VICARIOUS DVD menu.

I don’t even remember the music/noise from the Vicarious DVD menu, so perhaps I’ll stick it in my drive later today and check it out…
