Tool announce Rajas as support act

Blair has posted on Toolband that Rajas (featuring Mandala creator Vince DeFranco) will be supporting Tool for a range of dates from the 9th of July onwards:

I am very pleased to be able to announce a new WEBSITE and the debut self-titled album from RAJAS . Being the brainchild of guitarist BEN SHERAZI, the band also features PAUL JONES on bass, GINO BARBONI on percussion, and Mandala Drum and Dimension Beam inventor VINCE DeFRANCO on analog synths and the old ’69’ Fender Rhodes. As you are checking out the RAJAS website, be sure to click on the TOUR SECTION for info about their upcoming support for a certain prog-metal band (I guess it’s official after all!).

I took a quite listen and they sound alright.  The dates in question are:

  • 9th July in Vancouver
  • 10th July in Seattle
  • 15th in San Diego
  • 16th in Las Vegas
  • All the Los Angeles gigs

Not sure if it also includes those dates between the 10th and 15th.

I can dig, but what the fuck was that website?  No wonder I never heard of them. Aside from the cheesy circa 1990 web page (don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t take a website to make a band, just look at TA) they’re not too bad.

Nothing groundbreaking. Their sound is passable at best.

Ah, Jarred is a negative creep. Not sure why he is on this db…
Rajas is really good imo. http://soundcloud.com/rajas -of course who can compare to TOOL? Better than Maynard picking Devo or the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs…

I haven’t gotten to check out Rajas yet but I was at the OKC show and Woven Hand was pretty damn good.

Also, LOL at the setlist changing. It’s already epic enough, but to change the songs would mean a change in the amazing choreography that is their visuals that go along with their shows. That is why I don’t think they change stuff up.

Nice to have a change but they will stick witht he same setlist for the entire tour. 8yawn* Advice – cut the visuals and let the live music do the talking. I miss the old TOOL.

Glad you had a laugh and didn’t take it the wrong way. Just old things that popped up that have been discussed here before that Jr has stated regarding the lights, setlist and what not.

Enjoy the shows everyone
