Danny Says….

Tigran contacted me the other day, saying he ran into Danny at a Jazz Show at the La Ve Lee club in LA. Apparently, Danny suggested the Pigmy Love Circus may be doing some stuff in the next few months (possible some shows and/or recording) before Tool start up again in April. Tigran presumed this meant more shows, but I guess in light of recent news it means they may be starting writing songs then.

Whatever they do in April, be it song writing or tour, I’m sure we’ll be happy with the results!

I know it is still early days but it’s great to know that Tool plan on getting back together in April, presumably to start jamming for a new record etc. While I appreciate that everyone needs time off, 5 years between albums sure is a long time to wait. If they start mid-08′ then an album sometime in 2010 would be the result. Good news to me.

It seems about right in some obscure, emotional way. I wonder how Maynard will handle touring, I remember towards the end of the 10,000 Days tour he was saying he just couldn’t take it much more. It was like ripping scars open or something.

Hellboy, while a 2009 release would be great, I think the safe bet is 2010 at the earliest. I’d love to be proven wrong but Tool do seem to take their time with things. Early 2010 would be my guess. After having all of 2003 off, Danny, Justin and Adam began jamming in 2004 while MJK was still doing APC stuff until July 04. From then on it took until April/May of 2006 for 10,000 Days to come out. I reckon they’ll jam/write stuff from April this year for quite some time, then next year fine-tune things and record for… Read more »

Yep, I’ll be happy when they drop Alex Grey and start writing Tool songs.

Does Danny do drugs? What about the rest of the band?

im sure they all once did, but its pretty clear they are clean right now..

adam said a while back they had stuff left over from 10,000 days they might use, some drop BE stuff.. and justin commented that they are always writing/getting ideas while on the road touring..just like they used adams riff from wings for marie/10,000days and u see videos of that riff dating back to like 2002 live sets.. so maybe it wont be as long as we all think

i think tool is much more at ease nowadays with touring … they do tours all over the world since what !! 10 years or so.. So they could do that for a long time… but the process of creating and doing music because of their maturity and experience has become easier and fastest so . Besides dealing with it better they know how to flow them better also.. i think the latest tour with some months of time off is suported and not has tiring has the last per exemple . They have a lot of experience in that..… Read more »

Yes, 2009 seems so possible. The break between Lateralus and 10,000 Days was because of APC, the break between Aenima and Lateralus was because the legal shit, but for the break between Undertow and Aenima the band didn’t really have anything, well except Paul leaving. So I guess we can base it off that:

1993 – Undertow
1994
1995
1996 – Aenima

2006 – 10,000 Days
2007
2008
2009 – Next Tool album

Agreed?

I would guess mid-to-late 2009 is really likely.

Ugh, don’t talk about APC because I’m still holding out for one more record… But whatever, if Maynard does something with Puscifer that actually catches my attention I might care less.

Can they do a “Sick of the studio tour” at some stage? Then maybe an “escape from the studio tour”?? It’s all possible ;p Plus i wanna see them in Aus again. In all seriousness, it’s great i suppose. The band have nothing else on. Maynard is now winding down with Puscifer. he really needs to focus on videos every 3 or 4 months now, and that will stop soon. As for the others, they were vacating, when maynard was busting his balls over the forementioned Puscifer. On touring; I reckon they can handle it. They seem so much more… Read more »
