Justin interviewed in Rolling Stone Australia Magazine

Justin was interviewed by Rolling Stones Robyn Doreian during the recent interview frenzy, and it’s just appeared on the shelves this month. Here’s a snippet:

“It’s never taken us this long,” he says. “If it’s not happening, then it’s just not happening. We will not put out something we are not satisfied with. We are a bit slower this time. We are older, we are different and our situations are different. We are just accepting of the fact that it’s going to take a lot more patience.”

He mentions it’s unlikely the album will be out in 2013. Justin also talks about maturing as a person, M.T.void and how he expects the coming tour to draw from old and newer material during a “sensory overload” spanning several hours. Over all a relatively short interview, but full of interesting snippets.

For those wanting a copy, I purchased mine for just over $5 via the Google Play store. Here’s a link, though I’m not sure if it will be available to non-Australians.

Thanks to Calfium Jay for the tip.

Does anyone fancy quoting what he said about the new material for those who can’t read it?

Sounds like they have writers block? “If its not happening, it’s just not happening. ” Who knows when the hell this will come out. To me, it just sounds like they really aren’t into the band anymore. Adam says they’ve become a lot more distant now. I guess that could be taken several ways. Maynard seems to care more about Puscifer and his wine. Its just hard to see where their mind is at. I really haven’t heard anything positive about the band or album as of late.

“I really haven’t heard anything positive about the band or album as of late.”

Listen to Adams last radio interview he sounded super positive, i think its gonna be Epic.

Bottrill! Bottrill! Bottrill! Well said VOID. I’ll also predict 2014. Sounds like everything is on schedule. The new SPIN article with Adam sheds light. He’s been so positive lately.

@phox Bottrill, right before saying that they needed to move on, said he’d love to work with them again but understood that they needed to move on. I think they need to move back to him and that would be the change they need. He brought out the best in TOOL and moving to Joe Baressi (10,000 Days) was not the best move. Adam didn’t like Bottrill in the beginning because he was more drum based and didn’t know so much about guitar. My guess is Bottrill learned everything he needed to know about guitar by the time Lateralus was… Read more »

Bottrill admitted not knowing guitar very well and that Adam had to guide him and said that it was “very sweet” how Adam kind of lead him in the direction he needed to go. But I do think you’re right for the most part. Someone was frustrated and I think it was Danny. Either way… Bottrill needs to be the man again. That’s what will send this next album over the top and rectify the long wait.

Adam liked Limp Bizkit’s version of ‘Opiate’.

WTF

That is all.

It’s flattering to have someone cover your song is mainly what I think he meant. Limp Bizkit (very lame) have a guitar virtuoso in the band which is the only thing I see making it respectable. Wes Borland is pretty amazing at what he does. Adam also cannot openly come out and say… “OH yeah that version sucked I hated it.” without stirring up a shit storm of media related bullshit. I guarantee the headline the very next day would be “Adam Jones of TOOL calls Limp Bizkit’s cover of Opiate terrible” or something better written but of the same… Read more »

I thought adams comment about “March Madness” was interesting…wondering how close they are….

loft renovations, maynard in town, shows coming up…it would be great if they were getting near the last phase of writing. Seems like they could do these shows and then wrap up the album over the summer, and then plan for studio time.

So yeah, sometime 2014

Don’t get me wrong, the production on 10,000 days is good however, Lateralus is my all time favorite album with Aenima as a close 2nd. Bottrill really captured the escense of TOOL. He for some reason was able to percieve and influence the message, the cohesion between the members and the overall emotion that I think we are all so very impressed with. I don’t think anyone else can possibly get them back to that space again other than Bottrill. That’s the album we’re all waiting 8 years for! We all love 10,000 days but if that’s what we get… Read more »

I’m sure Lou Pearlman could find some way to make money that’s for sure… However… not exactly TOOLesque type of producer. Unless Adam wants to get rid of those long grey locks and get short spiky bleached blonde hair. Danny to follow suit and Justin to shave his beard… Hmmm… ages are a little off though. WTF?

10,000 Days is the counterbalance to Lateralus. It leaves open a brand new possibility for the 5th album. I do tend to enjoy the Botrill style more in the long run, simply because it sounds more futuristic, or spacey…..but i LOVE the heavy bass of 10KD, and certain passages on the album sound unbelievable. Not sure what the word is…..but the great thing about Lateralus is how it doesnt sound dated to any time period, lyrically or musically. I guess thats why ppl react badly to 10KD….but i see it as a necessity. Tool had to blow it out the… Read more »

Nah. Let’s see what Ron Pearlman could do producing Tool’s next album.

I want to see Ron Paul’s Tool album.

Wow… seriousness… congrats guys you’re officially not funny.

Off topic, but for those interested there’s also a decent interview with Black Sabbath regarding their new album in the latest Rolling Stone.

But yeah, it was a surprise to open the magazine while I was enjoying my roast pork and coleslaw sandwich and iced tea and suddenly see the words “Tool” and “fifth lp” in a headline as initially I had bought the magazine solely for the new Bowie interview.

Sometimes you just get lucky….

The drums on 10,000 Days DO sound good. You just can’t hear them very well sometimes, or in great detail. It takes away from the impact of a lot of what Danny does. A lot of what makes his playing unique are the nuances within it.

The only song on 10KD where the drums are mixed at a good/similar level to Aenima and Lateralus is on Vicarious. Listen to the volume level of the drums on Viacrious vs. the rest of the album. You’ll hear the difference.
