Just noticed on Toolband a moment ago that the Tool March Newsletter for 2012 has just been published. There’s a range of stuff in it, though not much detail about the new Tool album, mainly as I expect there isn’t really much to say except they’re working on it! More interesting are details on the new Volto! album:
In Tool-related news (see the difference?), mark your calendar that VOLTO! will be performing ultra-fusion at THE MINT here in Los Angeles on SATURDAY, MARCH 31. Hopefully, Danny will be in good spirits for this one after a K.U. victory in the afternoon. If not, hopefully there will be some good spirits behind the bar to ease his pain. As for the progress of the new Volto record, “Evil” JOE BARRESI has finished working his magic, and the mix should soon be on its way to be mastered by Bob Ludwig up there in Maine with all the lobsters. For those of you who have e-mailed about ADAM JONES doing the album’s artwork, as I understand it, although Adam may be contributing some original artwork to the project, the majority will come from an original piece that Danny currently owns. And although there is a great story associated with this artwork (with regards to a famous 1960s rock group), let’s see if it indeed is used for the cover, etc. before sharing it with the rest of the world (via Danny’s or the Volto! website).
Forthcoming interview with Danny for Paiste!
Yea if its half as good as the vic firth interview we should be in for a treat. If the L.A. sound stage really did have concert posters, thats really cool! Maybe i will keep an eye out on ebay for red Tool lounge wear.
Also, i wonder if Blair read our talk, started by me on fourtheye about the album coming out on the Mayan Doomsday. Shoulda known he would like that. And, the mention of “Fourtheye” in the news letter, NICE.
He’s been mentioning/joking about that date for a while.
Too bad he couldn’t spell it correctly http://www.fortheye.net
TAKEN FROM THE MARCH 2011 NEWSLETTER “… Which brings us to the “holy grail” that I mentioned earlier. No, it’s not a cheap guitar signed hastily backstage by all four band members as part of some radio promo. It also doesn’t concern bizarre video props or some Xeroxed set-list that includes “The Grudge”, and which is also signed by Maynard (most likely fabricated). It’s not even the lyrics to a popular Tool song hand written on a Ralph’s grocery bag. No, this is something REALLY special. Are you ready? Suppose I was to tell you that there is a Tool… Read more »
