Billboard, Amazon, Isis+Butcher

According the Billboard:

Rock act Tool will break a five-year silence on May 2 with its next album, “10,000 Days.”

No other details have yet been revealed about the Volcano Records project, which is the follow-up to 2001’s “Lateralus.” That set debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 2.3 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Tool will play its first U.S. show since late 2002 when it headlines the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival on April 30 in Indio, Calif. No other U.S. dates have been confirmed.

Afterward, Tool will spend the first portion of the summer playing the European festival circuit, with dates on tap from May 26 in Lisbon through July 9 at Finland’s Turku Festival.

Nothing new there, but it’s good to hear yet more confirmation of the release date.

Also a couple of people have mentioned that the new CD is also being listed on Amazon.com. Again, no real news there, but good to see none the less.

Finally, Blair mentioned on Toolband.Army that Butcher will be supporting Isis when the play in LA on the 7th and 8th of April. Be there or be square!

Speculation more than news: Ozzfest was announced today, though they said another main stage act will be announced May 23rd. That seems suspiciously far off. I know Tool’s busy through June, but I’m not really sure when Ozzfest traditionally runs, and this year’s dates haven’t been announced. Any thoughts?

oh i wouldnt go to ozzfest, even for tool. especially this year theres a shitty lineup, but no lineup can save ozzfest.

blksun, work on your grammar? i’ve read your post about 6 times and i have no idea what the fuck you’re saying. and something being taken off regular amazon but still appearing in amazon UK is probably more of a technical error than a telling and factual piece of evidence. it is not, for example, a shipping receipt or a recorded phone call from alex grey.

A few more mathematically-oriented titles, and certainly a lot to discuss. (Including the ongoing question about whether we are being toyed with … though at the moment that is unclear). Maybe you want to head over to the “10,000 Days / New Album” forum in the Opinion section and weigh in! Thanks to Joel Haugen for giving us the heads-up…
