Adam shares a gift from the Loft

Adam has shared with us some footage of the band rehearsing Lateralus from the Loft. It doesn’t really need further explanation or analysis, so here it is!

Just a warm up, or “rehearsing” for an upcoming tour? About 2 years ago Blair mentioned that Tool was looking into implementing “a new concept of touring”. I have speculated that this “new concept” could mean an increased number of tours with fewer touring dates. To some extent, that is what Tool has done over the past couple years.

If I remember correctly, you (like most everyone else) were surprised about the recent Australian tour too.

I also doubt they are necessarily preparing for an upcoming tour, but I do think it’s possible they might be moving toward more frequent touring schedule with fewer dates (more breaks) – so an upcoming tour has at least some plausibility in my mind.

Where did he post this? I can’t see this on my phone, which is all I have right now.

ya, they have been doing these short little tours since 2009. they hit every bigger area every 2 years and whatever else inbetween those. smart move. stay relevant and make good money and tour a month or two a year. its smart in a business sense but gay cause theirs never any new music! does anyone think adam calling that little video ‘a gift’ come across a bit on the “up your own ass vibe?” i suppose hes part of the nazi crew that doesnt want pictures or anything else done at their shows. its like 2 min long. its… Read more »

He’s saying thanks for the month of Loudwire voting.

A 2 minute teaser of a new tune would suffice.

Lateralus has been played to death.

The real treat would have been all 4 of them there.

i thought it was awesome. Tried to pause it to read the writing on the white board but didn’t work out. Either way I agree that it is just what he said it was a “gift” something he thought his fans may enjoy. And most of us probably did.

If I had a facebook account there’s no doubt Adam would block me. Just like he did on his Instagram account after I told him to shove the Opiate re-release up his ass and spit out a new album… I can play Lateralus in my sleep with my hands tied behind my back… thanks prick. PS… I voted Dimebag… Adam is a progressive dark rock guitarist not a metal guitarist. Tired of all these re-hashings. They are just stirring a pot of ashes and dust as far as I’m concerned.

Been a while since I posted here. Really guys? Jeez…he posted a video of them practicing a song. Check it out and then move on with your life.

Also, they’ve said before in interviews they always start off practice warming up with a couple older songs first, before digging into new material.

Alright, I’m gonna help y’all out and hopefully put this bickering to death. I joined to specify this tenuous issue. Lateralus was also known as the “holy GIFT” right? And Adam posted the video on 8.13.13 right? If I’m not mistaken 8 and 13 are apart of the Fibonacci sequence. There must’ve been something particular about that date in correlation. Either way I’m sure he used the word GIFT for a specific reason in relation to Lateralus being a holy GIFT. P.S. it is nauseating grueling to have to put up with all that TOOL does to keep us happy.… Read more »

Why does everything have to be a fucking riddle with them? @bdub2588 What they’ve lost is that straight forward and raw approach to things. Their sitting around playing fucking riddle me this, riddle me that while Maynard is losing his vocal ability (Listen to APC live @ Lallapalooza Brazil horendous) and I fear the new album will suffer. I’m tired of bitching about it but it’s kind of hard not to when they do stupid shit like this… Just shut the fuck up and write the album and quit “giving out gifts”… An over priced re-release of a 21 year… Read more »

Btw did anyone notice the small glimpse at the dry erase board? I wanna know what’s on that thing.

It would be really fun to see a rehearsal video with all four of the guys in the room. Does Maynard even do that with them anymore?

Probably when they’re going on tour, but I doubt if he ever really just jams with them for the fuck of it.
