Adam has posted in Instagram a partial image of something that looks like a drawing of his. No clues as to what it is except for the hash tag #soon:
Your guess is as good as mine as to what it’s for. Is it a poster for a coming tour (Tool or otherwise)? Is it some kind of artwork from the “unexpected” project or perhaps from the Pot DVD? Any other thoughts? I expect we’ll hear more in the next newsletter…
Update: It appears this image is part of the artwork for the new Red Hare album.
Obviously the Pot video. Soon could mean next week or May. I wouldnt be shocked if they waited until the AUS/NZ/JP tour to unveil the video sort of like what they did with the Parabola video.
Cmon already.. seriously.
Texture makes it look like a poster. Similar texture to the poster I got in New Jersey this past year.
Lucky to find those albums this year. They are all great.
How does anyone not realize it’s a gig poster for the upcoming tour? I mean… the mind reels sometimes.
And I don’t really mean you guys, more the mountains of people on Instagram, FB, etc. ALL of them just echoing “new album finally!!!!! whooooooooo!!!!” If you follow them enough to be aware of the new album hubub, you should probably be aware they’re about to tour, and this is what the gig posters normally consist of.
reminds me of szukalski. they’re all into him.
He’s definitely working on some posters. The shows are within reach #soon. What is it with this “Pot Video”? Why would they step backward? I don’t think there’s ever going to be a fucking “Pot Video” when they are looking forward at a whole new album… Anyways, I hope you Aussie fuckers and you Kiwi fuckers get to some new songs. These guys really love you down under. Hopefully they make it out to California soon… Bay area will be ideal for me.
****HEAR…. some new songs
Some of you guys had some weight against Mog’s impatience before…now…he’s beyond right in his judgement. These guys haven’t put out something as a band in 7 years. 7 years! Nothing!
Not an album, a b-side/live release, a song, a video and yet they do keep leading people on through various interviews, etc. Nice to see even a little update, but I’d kind of like to know what’s really been going on w/them for the past few years…
Nah. Regardless, Mog is a troll. There is no room for a one trick pony in this rodeo.
If you look at the eye you can see the pixels.. I doubt its a shirt I think it is a picture of a paused TV. Whatever that means.
I meant the white parts obviously.
whine whine i want a new album, i am tired of waiting…tool are unprofessional liars for making us wait…whine whine i deserve more than this because i matter so much
Reminds me of In the court of the Crimson King cover and Cthulhu.
Some of you people seem to think they’ve been working on the album everyday since the day after releasing 10,000 days.
Or that they have been working on it all year for the past 3 years.
Please think realistic about it, they might work on it 2-3 months out of the year
Then ya know live their lives since their middle aged not 20 something yr olds eager to just sit and make music all.
Don’t worry, be happy
@children: Not so much whining, just kind of marveling at how a band of this caliber could actually be that lazy! I mean you have to admit it’s kind of unbelievable. Also from an interview with Maynard posted today: http://www.tonedeaf.com.au/features/interviews/267488/maynard-james-keenan-puscifer.htm “I guess the biggest thing to remember is that I’m not lazy, and I am a responsible person that is there when I’m called on,” says Keenan teasingly. “I do what I have to do to get a job done.” Hardly confirmation of new material, but in his own cryptic way, not exactly a denial either. “I’m not lazy –… Read more »
Since when is Maynard the deciding factor in Tool. What could he possibly to do speed up the album making process. I guess one day he could just say “Hey those Tool guys are being way too damn lazy with this new album business. I will just stroll over to the loft and tell them to hurry the fuck up.”
None of us know what is actually happening in the Tool members’ lives or what the status is on the album, stop acting like you do
Yes you did use the words ‘might’ and seems’. Great job!
I agree with you, Maynard has no control over the new album. That’s why my post was directed to the person that just made the complete opposite statement.
Mog fucking Mog is either a blood and flesh troll, or is seriously disconnected from reality
all this fighting amongst t00l fans is rad! it’s like the good ol’ days on t00larmy. im happy for Australians that never get to see them. as us Angelenos have seen them so often that we complain about repetitive setlists… there’s going to be a big screen behind them. they’re going to open with HWAP. they won’t do new stuff. there will be a swirly eye tshirt that Adam has been drawing since 1999 (thanks for the ideas Cam!), Justin and Danny will shred. you’ll all have fun. just lower your expectations. no new album till 2013. … (I’m not… Read more »
Honestly, i prefer Danny’s dick to Maynard’s. There’s much more girth
i think the emotion and climax comes near the end of the writing process, but what do i know.
and when the earlier albums were coming out they were in the early stages of their evolution so i would imagine that the songs were probably written much faster
notice that the music is getting much deeper and complex with each album
Wow…seriously? We really don’t deserve a new album, let alone the ones they have given us, with that attitude. Fans like toolphish should be ashamed of themselves; they are the reason Tool ‘fucks’ with their fans.
Not sure i understand. Are you saying Tool fucks with their fans because we buy their music, or are you saying they fuck with their fans because they believe any news given to them. Either way it makes no sense.
What do you want from Tool? Would you prefer that they released a good album exactly at the time that is expected from their impatient fans, or that they released a amazing album at their own pace, and met the standards they have set for themselves in the past and expanded their craft even further like they always have. I choose the latter, no matter how long it takes; it will be worth all it. Let them do their thing; we will get an album. Tool has never been a band that has pandered to the masses. They don’t do… Read more »
A person who says that art has nothing to do with the band Tool obviously has no idea what they’re talking about, and is in fact a fucking moron
Just want to point out that prior to Aenima during Undertow tours, Tool played many songs from Aenima live long before the album was released. The live versions were different and would evolve over time quite a bit.
In fact, i didnt like aenima for a long time because it sounded pretty crappy compared to the live versions i had already seen. It took awhile to get over the songs i already knew. They changed parts, and the recording quality was way different than what i expected.
Now when i listen to Aenima it sounds pretty damn perfect. What can i say, i was a dumb teenager.
Most people don’t even watch bootlegs.
Probably a design for merch, but whenever they drop the new album I hope it’s out of the blue. It seems right for them to secretly record this time around. The design looks sweet by the way.
and TOOL can do whatever they want, it’s their band. we don’t own them
this could teach you worry warts a lesson
well i am a fourteen year old fangirl
The only “bitches” on this forum appear to be crow and all his little fuck buddies. No matter how literate you are, whining is whining; a fool is a fool.
more lessons from a wise man to the cool dudes in this forum
Nothing gets into the bubble. If anything threatens their little world view that 10,000 Days sucks and Tool doesn’t appreciate their fans, then they start making up “facts” to defend themselves; when they are given the reality of the situation they either completely ignore you, change the subject, call you a fanboy, or keep whining like the fucking bitches they are.
Yeah because humans have absolutely no relation to monkeys. The Bible would have mentioned something about it if there was; it is “The Word of God” after all.
How dare Maynard make that comparison. It’s absolutely ridiculous. FUCK MAYNARD. FUCK TOOL. FUCK THE JEWS. FUCK SATAN. FUCK SCIENCE. FUCK PEACE. FUCK LOVE.
but it is your opinion that The Pot sucks
