On Reddit the other day some chap called cptsweatpantz decided to start an online petition to get Tool to re-release their albums on vinyl. A noble suggestion, however was met with the usual cries of “online polls don’t do shit!” – something I agree with despite signing anyway.
Lo and behold the creator of the petition receives an email from Danny Carey (screenshot of which is below) in which he says:
The petition won’t really matter. We are already in the process of remastering all of our albums for release on vinyl in the near future.
Thanks for your enthusiasm Josh,
Good news on the surface of things, since I suspect many would embrace the opportunity to grab some legitimate, and reasonably priced Tool vinyl. “Near future” can be taken to mean anytime between now and End Times.
It should be pointed out that it’s pretty easy to spoof email addresses, so I’d suggest some caution here (though I have no real reason to doubt this random Reddit guy). Fingers crossed it’s legit though.
