Dates are inside the video below (I can’t be bothered typing them out) and are mainly northern and eastern USA:
I can picture certain Tool dusting off their keyboards for some rage posting right now.

Awesome! I get to see Puscifer in Buffalo and The Melvins in Rochester
Rage rage rage rage waiting til July rage rage rage rage Danny said May rage rage rage rage
Thank God puscifer will be doing more touring this summer, I really don’t want Tool rushing out their new album. I’m also hoping they take their time on their website design. I really feel they should take a break and go on a much needed vacation.
Has anyone done the VIP thing for Puscifer or heard of anyone who has? What is it? Do you get to see or meet Maynard at all?
I wanna Rage, but what is the point really? No new Tool album this year that is for sure now. Really sick of Puscifer. The only thing that bugs me is how Danny talked about hitting the studio in May or June and Maynard decides to go on tour with Puscifer in June. August/September is wine harvest season. Tool yet again taking a back seat. Shame.
Puscifer has overstayed its welcome. This is coming from someone that’s seen them twice and likes their albums (to a degree).
It seems like the LAST thing on the planet Maynard wants to do is hang out with Tool and write music together.
by the way, the little “movie” before the puscifer show is awful. its not funny at all.
when has blair said that danny adam and justin have even written strong structures? i thought he only said they were ‘jamming’??? maynard wont come in to do his part until songs are actually made and developed. its hard to add vocals to 3 minute jams. For christs fucken sake I hope the new tool album doesnt come out ever. Even when the new album comes out all you fucken cry babies are going to do is tell us how it sucks and how much you wish it sounded like undertow and aenima. Go listen to Koloss.
@Paradigm I did the soundcheck/whine tasting in Dallas. For soundcheck the band came out and played the humbling river and covered fleetwood macs the chain (2 songs that where not in the set. for the wine tasting we tasted 3 of MJK’s wine’s and MJK popped in for about 3 mins, said thankyou, gave a toast and left
Maynard could hammer out his parts in July easily. Vocals will need to be tracked last anyway, so the other 3 can do everything in May and June, and Maynard can do his stuff in July, and it could possibly still come out this year, or very early next year. Oh, and Rage.

I really feel they should take a break and go on a much needed vacation. I did it in Portland in March. It’s definitely worth it. $200 for early entry, a private show, signed poster, messenger bag, wine tasting and Maynard walked in for about 15 minutes. He didn’t say much but he was close enough to touch. He comes in with his bodyguard. They played Humbling River, The… Read more »
When you show a picture of Danny playing drums, and it say “WITH HIS PART DOWN.”, that means it is a song finished. They aren’t simply jamming. When you say writing and arranging, that means songs are being completed enough for vocals to be written and worked on. It’s kind of hard to write 100% instrumental with no idea to what the vocals will be. Lots of re-writes have to happen to adjust to whatever Maynard does. Obviously, they hammer that part out in person just prior to going into the studio. There is no correlation between being annoyed at… Read more »
Funny. It’s like every album. Tool will release it when it’s done.

Am I the only one here who thinks that the new Tool album is doing just fine and everything is coming along as it is supposed to be?
You bet your ass I am!
No you’re not. I mostly agree, the Tool album might be a little behind schedule but, I don’t really think there’s that much of a problem
Everything is going as planned and right on schedule. In the meantime you can watch “Gummo” over and over… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R0NhA4dqI08
Puscifer plays 15 days in july and everyone throws their hands up bitching about Tool
Get a grip people does your life really revolve around 4 dudes In a band that much
The July dates are for the Melvins. Puscifer is playing the month of June.
Puscifer tours…Perfect Circle tours…grape harvests. What those things tell me is that Maynard wants to work. The guy loves to stay busy. Is he choosing those things instead of Tool? I doubt it. More likely they’re as a substitute while he waits for the other three guys to do their thing, and get ready for him. It seems like a lot of folks want to blame Maynard for delaying the new album, but the way I see it is that if it were up to Maynard, there would probably have been new Tool albums every 2-3 years instead of every… Read more »
