Blair on Toolband/Army has posted some artwork from 10,000 Days. This one looks like a new logo:
Anyone else think it looks like it says Fool rather than Tool?
This one may or may not be the cover:
Looks ok to me, though I was expecting something a little different. I’m sure though, as usual there will be much more to the artwork than just this image, and I’d very much doubt the CD case would consist of just this poked into a jewel case…..
looks cool to me.
looks like lateralus meets pink floyd’s division bell
It just looks like Tool have grabbed some more of Alex Greys artwork, and while I don’t mind his work, I think from an Tool Album artwork point of view, it’s pretty uninspired the second time round.
It has to be fake. I’m more convinced this is just a dragged on joke for leaks or so people don’t steal domain names or sell fake shirts.
It’s a regurgitated Alex Gray painting. It’s nothing original. I HIGHLY doubt that the titles and name are real. This seals it for me.

The picture is very Toolish.
As for the logo… I think my 8 year old could have done better with that logo, Ill ask her.
I like it a lot, actually. :thumbsup:
there a reason why it says next to my comment
“Your comment is awaiting moderation”
it didn’t say that for others before
All comments with links in them get flagged to be moderated, but usually unless they go one overnight, I’m on the ball and get them through quickly.
For me it’s not about whether or not the artwork is good, more that it lacks inspiration and originality. I have seen the Alex Grey artwork it’s taken from before, and while it’s cool, it just doesn’t feel like album artwork material to me.
oooh ok. Thanks. Sorry about that.
yeah, your comments about the artwork, thats why I don’t think it is real. It’s unoriginal. Something already done. They usually do something specific for the album
Let us recall the small script underneath the artwork:
This could be for a foreign EP, or some other derivative of the actual, full length album. That would make a ‘regurgitated’ piece of Grey’s work more understandable.
LETS NOT LOSE OUR HEADS!!!!!
I’m fairly certain “album mini” just means it’s a small image of it.
I also highly doubt they’d post artwork for a foreign EP or even make an EP and say it’s the artwork for 10,000 days that has 11 tracks listed few posts down. Why post a “derivative” of the album for? It’d make no sense.
No one is losing their heads.
Ummm…if it’s the artwork for a foreign version of ‘10,000 Days’ then it is artwork for ‘10,000 Days.’
Maybe you misunderstood what I meant. Furthermore, why would they have to tell us that the image is a miniature version of the album cover? It’s obvious that the album cover would be a larger size.
They’d post a foreign version because people are pretty rabid for ANY new artwork/info.
The ‘lose our heads’ bit was in jest.
I don’t think they’d post a foreign version of album art for something that hasn’t been released yet or even had art released for regular one. and isn’t their art usually the same overseas?
and maybe blair just wanted people to know that it’s smaller than what it will look like when you see the art in the case. it may not be obvious to some people though.
i dont like it at all. one thing ive noticed is that its not at all symettrical. very odd of tool if you consider their other artwork (think end of parabola video clip) much too uneven for my liking. Still it took a while for me to like the name of 10000 days so maybe it will grow on me.
here’s the cd slip for 10,000 Days…
Those images look a bit fake too me, especially the superimposed Tool logo. Still, looks cool though…
it looks less fool like on that background..
IF this is real, then we have all the information we need about the upcoming album:- Title, artwork and tracklisting.
Wow, that was easy….
Maybe this is the Artwork for the “Live-DVD”?
It makes more sense , if the DVD show the “Lateralus”-Tour
in 2002. Just a thought.
the artwork appears somewhat Aztec influenced, which is fitting with the theme of the album. Cheers!
It is possible this is the art for the single, or for a promo version. That would match what I was saying earlier.
well, it says it artwork, it may not just be the actual cover. Could just be a sleeve over it too? So, it may not be a fake or a joke. I don’t know anymore.
HAHAHA you were all Wrong… THIS is the front cover for the new album. And its awesome!
