Blair has released the February 2009 Newsletter somewhat secretly this time, as there wasn’t a post in the new about it.  It gives us an update of all the members, which I shall summarise below:

  • Adam is working on several big undisclosed projects (the video presumably)
  • Maynard is Puscifering, as we already know
  • Danny & Justin have had a very productive jam session a couple of weeks ago

Thanks to budsyralli from Toolarmy for spotting it.

Sweet, Danny and Justin are jamming! I hope this is a sign that Tool will break the cycle and not wait 5 years for the next album (2011)

“creative juice spewed out of the anus of four musicians”- no offence, but that is one fucked up analogy to describe Tool’s album production.

But yeh, I do hope we see a new album by 2010, and I hope to god it’s epic (Like 15 tracks epic) because im 99% sure it will be thier last album. And if it is thier last one, I want to see Maynard going all out on the vocals (not saving his voice like he did in 10,000 Days where his vocals were really drowned out).

I have been a fan since 2004, so I am quasi-new but I already knew that Tool’s albums take forever, hence me pointing out that I hope they break “the cycle” of 5 years between each album. Also, I loved 10,000 Days, it is my second favorite Tool album behind Lateralus.

As I am a long time member of another Tool forum, and have spent a lot of time debating the pros and cons of each album, I’ll just say this is how I listen to Tool Aenima Lateralus Undertow Opiate 10,000 Days Simply put, I listen to Aenima way more than I listen to any other Tool album. It still challenges me. Each release since has not quite reached the same level of amazingness, but that’s just me. Unfortunately 10,000 days is to my ears, quite predictable. Even a song as fantastic as Rosetta, to me, has a predictable climax.… Read more »

its definitely just you getting old… but in all seriousness, I often feel like the only Tool fan who feels every album is superior in one aspect or another to the one before it. Sure Aenima was awesome and all, but its instrumentally lacking in comparison to Lateralus, not to mention the mood and flow of Lateralus. Sure Lateralus is awesome, but it can get boring, especially in comparison to the diversity and song writing displayed on 10,000 Days…not to mention the fact that theyve once again improved their playing ability. See my point? I don’t mean to judge…a Tool fan… Read more »

No mention that Blair also went on to suggest in his cryptic way that there will be something happening in July.  Crazy,  but it almost sounds like they might be playing some festival in July.  Maybe just one show like they did back in ’99?

New video/DVD by the end of the year.  Possibly some kind of Salival like package featuring all recent videos and some live stuff

Would love to see something like this come out.

Yet you still don’t postulate what Blair could be getting at for July.  The more I look at it, the more I’m convincing myself they might actually be playing a festival.  Maybe wishful thinking, but still…

Album released March 2010

LOLLLLLLLLL! Where did you pull that date/prediction from? Credible sources or just a figment of what you want the release date to be? Don’t go by past trends because after every release they tend to take longer to get the album out there…my prediction 2011-2012 at the earliest. They are very lazy musicians…

I have been a tool fan  since i was twelve years old,since 1993! For someone to say they are fan,and make a comment 10,000 yawns,Well thats just you showing that you dont seem to understand music.First off  TOOL! Has been my favorite band for many reasons,One of them is that they grow through their music,they continue to move forward and explore new areas of what they do.Their is not one TOOL song that i do not like,that does not inspire me in some way.The main reason has always been,that it is not about them(getting attention)It is about the music!!!!So therefore… Read more »
