Here’s a bunch of news updates and things I’ve picked up of the last month but haven’t quite been motivated enough to create a new post for.

In case you missed it, Justin Chancellor will be appearing on a couple of tracks on the new Intronaut album Valley of Smoke.  The album will be released on the 12th of October so Rodney tells me.  No word on what Justin plays on but on track can be streamed on their Myspace site.

The X-Files/30 Days of Night issue #2 should be, or is very close to released now, and a review if can be found here.

Aaron Harris from Isis got married last weekend.  Several Tool members were in attendance so I heard, and according to Blair one of the wedding presents was a Danny Carey Signature Drum!  Congratulations to Aaron and Alexandra!

Maynard has a short interview in the latest issue of Relix Magazine, where he is featured in the Parting Shots section.  I haven’t read it but apparently the interview is largely about wine and doesn’t feature any real music news.  Thanks to Rick for that.

Quiet month after the tour wrapped up.

Hopefully this means one thing, short break then back onto the “three days a week” writing schedule!

I’d imagine if this is the case there won’t be a great deal of “TOOL news” for a few months before studio time comes up

Hopefully there is some of this going on.

It’d be nice if they were working on new material though, instead of older, crappy songs.

If we want to see an April/May release they should be going into the studio either this month or next at the latest. Hopefully we will be seeing pictures of a recording studio in the next newsletter or so…

I think they’re probably doing more than 3 days a week at the moment…

Do you know something, or is this an educated guess?

I need to stop double posting and get this reply correct…

Ya think?

With the tour done, I’d be satisfied if the Aug Newsletter just paints a nice picture that they are writing diligently. In roughly 10 days we’ll know. (uh hopefully).

It looks like Kabir at toolshed just talked with Danny who said that they are back to WRITING.  Looks like we’ll be waiting awhile yet….

That more or less corresponds with what I’ve heard, though I heard slightly more detail that I’ve been asked to keep close to my chest for now

I know the Blood Into Wine DVD is coming out September 7th, wouldn’t it be nice if they released Salival 2 to coincide the 10 year anniversary of Salival (December 12, 2000)?  Something like that would be nice….

^^For record I’m WELL AWARE that the “Ultimate Edition Salival” from Hellboy’s earlier post is a total fake.  I’m just saying it would be nice if they released some sort of live release – like they did with Salival.
