Tool September Newsletter published

Blair published the September 2010 newsletter on Toolband this morning, which once again confirms that Tool are taking part in the Big Day Out tour.  It does mention that fans are hoping for some solo shows, but neither confirms nor denies that these will happen, so I guess we’ll have to wait a little longer on that.  Seems to me that they won’t be announced prior to Big Day Out tickets going on sale, so those of you in Sydney and Melbourne who want to see Tool this trip are probably going to have to grab tickets as soon as they go on sale, in case the Big Day Out sells out and there are no side shows announced.  Personally I’ll be grabbing tickets to the Adelaide BDO, and then heading over to a sideshow should they happen.

Once again mentioned the possibility of shows in Hawaii.  Sounds to me like this will almost definitely go ahead, though sources close to this fan site have no further information on this…

On the writing/recording front, the newsletter basically confirms what Justin mentioned in an interview yesterday: that the band are still writing and there’s no danger of them heading to the studio anytime soon.  I wouldn’t count on them recording anytime before March 2011.

Finally, he also confirmed that Aaron Harris from Isis will join Tool on the Big Day Out tour, presumably as some kind of sound technician.  Aaron seems to be really keen on getting into the recording business, and from what I’ve read has done some great work with Kiwi band Jakob, and I’m sure all of us here at Fourtheye wish him luck with all his post-Isis endeavours.

Anyone know likelihood of a show in Brisbane….

Possibly on the Saturday, Monday or Tuesday? Doesn’t look good, so i may have to just buy the BDO ticket… or time a holiday to melb or sydney

Do you think they will play some new material? Since apparently they are actively working on new material?

Have they ever played new songs on tour (i.e. before the album the songs were on was released) in their entirety? Or just snippits as segues b/w other songs?

Do you reckon side show dates will be released when Bdo tickets are sold>?

Given that BDO tickets go on sale in a weeks time, I suspect that it’s unlikely that sideshows will go on sale before hand.  In fact, if I were the festival organisers I’d try very hard to get bands to not announce sideshows until after the festival goes on sale.

That was a really good read, makes a change from Blair’s usual crap. I don’t think they would hint at side shows if there wasn’t going to be the possiblity of  them happening. Also the Hawaii shows are a good sign, maybe they will continue the tour after BDO. mmmmmm new tool, raging clue alright.

in the end, it’s always the same… we have to wait and to be patient, it’s ok, i’m getting used to it …. i just don’t want them to disappoint me with a repetitive album, like a second lateralus or a second 10,000 days, thank god  all their albums have been different… lets see what they have for us next year.

I am again encouraged by this newsletter, in conjunction with the interview with Justin, They seem happy with where the next album is going and want to take their time.
 
That’s good news, and it’s all I want to hear. When it’s ready, it will be here, and I will be happy.

With all the anti Maynard talk going on and the accusations of him selling out, doing the puscifer thing and the wine dvd. I have a strong suspicion that we may see HWAP return to the setlist this tour. Call it a hunch but I suspect it may happen. I don’t know why…
Side note-The maynard bashing was not done here at fourth eye but at another forum.

Another year should allow TOOL to hopefully provide us with another music video and the 10,000 Days vinyl.

I agree the chances of it being played are slim. I also thought that about third eye and especially intolerance. When I saw those setlists tweeted I was sure we were being punked. Anyway when they come to Hawaii I won’t look at any setlists. The last time I saw them I was able to call every song before it was played. That took away from the concert experience a bit. If you have seen the video where pushit is played for the first time, you can hear people nearly having heart attacks. I want to have that same shit… Read more »

I agree Lateralus is the best Tool album and will be the one they should be remembered for but it was those fellas at that time on those days 10 years ago that made it. it will never happen again. nevermind, badmotorfinger, dirt, ten, RATM, it is rare a band has another masterpiece… it pains me to say it but the next Tool record will probably be just OK, its the nature of bands in general isnt it? but Justins recent interview gave me hope as always!

true for the most part, but tool did it with aenema and lateralus, in my opinion… and surprising, but not shocked, the deftones just did it as well… saw it posted somewhere else here and agree that diamond eyes is so far my album of the year… so not impossible

Not sure Diamonds Eyes is a classic to be honest…not to the same level White Pony was anyway.

meh… grain of salt Mr. Boy, considering Muse is way better than Radiohead
