Blair has published his October 2012 Tool Newsletter. His usual dense prose seems to largely cover Justin’s recent escapades in Houston, and not a whole bunch of Tool specific info (or any from my quick read).
Only thing of interest I can find for Tool fans is the line “By the way, whatever happened to your friends playing those big shows in South America in the Fall?” Good question. My sources have suggested that Tool were offered a range of tours this year (including Australia) but have knocked them all back in order to concentrate on the next album.
Finger crossed that Tool revisit the South American tour though, as I know there are a large number much neglected fans in the area.
