Posted not long ago on the internet is a Facebook video from Adam’s page featuring Phil and Mikkey from Motörhead, and Adam from Tool in a Los Angeles recording studio. Motörhead are in one studio, and Tool are in the other one “working on some tunes, having fun”. Take a look for yourself:
Post by Adam Jones Tool.
So it seems Tool are now recording – is it the new album? Is it something else? Hopefully we’ll find out soon!
now what all does this mean ” in the studio” ?
Well, presumably they are recording something. What that something is, we don’t know, but the logical assumption would be that they are recording the new album.
Not based on this especially, but I think we are going to see the new album in about 6 months.
Fourtheye sweepstakes bro? Buy a calendar date for 5 bucks closest one takes the pot.
If they are indeed recording new album stuff one would presume writing is pretty much done, excepting gaynard. Can’t see them tracking with other tunes unfinished.
Yeah, I think Tool has mentioned before they don’t go into the studio until they’re done songwriting. The recording process for them is normally a quick one.
there’s one reason why i think that they are actually recording the new album: remember how frustrated Adam was after he made the joke about “the new album is done, coming out tomorrow” during the last tour? even maynard jumped in and said something like “check your sources”. in another interview Adam also stated that he know that fans are pissed because the new album takes so long…. so what i’m trying to say here is that Adam was well aware on what the world would think when HE! posted this video in HIS facebook timeline…so either they are actually… Read more »
That’s one way to think about it. Adam would certainly understand how fans could interpret this.
Not to add fuel to the fire, but another thought occurred to me. Since the release of this photo in October: http://instagram.com/p/uhvWM8q3IL/?modal=true … What has Maynard been doing, publicly speaking? Doesn’t seem that he’s been actively pursuing Puscifer or APC related projects. His harvest is what… August through the end of November? Could the man have been penning lyrics for Tool all this time? Is it possible that Maynard has done his part? On the flip side, I thought I recall some blurb from some interview with one of the members of the band that said something along the lines… Read more »
More fuel to the fire… I looked back a bit to see if there was anything from the numerous maynard social media channels that suggested he’s up to something other than Tool (musically speaking). Only thing that came close was this… https://www.facebook.com/PusciferMusic/photos/a.274814569494.143421.5930509494/10152562529489495/?type=1&theater Notice the date (Oct. 26) is only 2 days after Adam posted the picture of maynard in the loft, listening to new Tool music (Oct. 24). Also, (this is a stretch) I caught wind that some suspect maynard is the man in the mask in this video, posted on tool’s FB on Adam’s birthday (Jan. 17)… https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=821808234546314 Adam… Read more »
rehearsal for tour? recording studio? toons = movie or video?
There’s been other clues that they’re ready for the studio…
The white board saying “The End”, and Blair had some cryptic comment about something happening with the members of Tool on 2-10-15 through his crystal ball…
Feels like they almost waited to record until after the lawsuit ended.
Either way, I think they must’ve crafted the album down to the finest details in all this time!!
Can’t wait to see some pics of the whole band at the studio. Maybe some more BBQ pics?
It seems that the “The End” referred not only to particular track but the whole album. I’m wondering if Blair’s post from 12th February has something to do with “studio” thing.
Well, that’s certainly the first something interesting in a long while. Hopefully it’s one of those rare things that actually materialize. It more seemed like the Motörhead guy was trying to clue us in on something! Tool, still playing it close to the chest.
i believe Modest Mouse also have an album due… i predict new Tool, Temple of the Dog and Nirvana for 2015…
I’ll take the following three guesses for a new album release this year:
Friday October 2, 2015
Friday October 9, 2015
Friday October 16, 2015
I think “The End” plus the scrying reference by Blair plus the October 2014 photo of all members in the loft are all good signs towards suggesting the ‘writing’ process has finished now. Plus, a good point made above about ADAM posting this video, so he knows how people might react to this new clip etc.
I hope I am correct.
Holy crap! If they’re actually recording now there’s a really good chance the new album will be out this year. Definitely was not expecting this. Most excellent news.
This is pretty exciting stuff. If it means what we think it means, then we are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Although, as a Tool fan, I should know better than to let this get me too hyped, considering how misleading Tool info has been in the past, but I can’t help it… Hell, even Hellboy is a little optimistic about this, and he’s usually pretty realistic about his expectations!
Also, (sorry for the double post) didn’t it seem like Adam was giving us a sly little hint at new material with that casual riffage?
His whole attitude during that clip seemed like he was letting us in on a secret.
Look at the way he smiles and points at the camera, that says it all to me.
Hi…first post…been following this site for a long time. It has been mentioned that they could be in the studio for something other than the new album. We know in the past that they have released something a few months prior to releasing a new album. I hate reading too much into Blair’s stuff, but his cryptic Feb 12th post might provide hints…”faint impressions”…”soporific side-effects”…has got me thinking (I hope I’m wrong) that they are working on another Lustmord remix. Also, Blair’s prior post on Feb 11th plugs an upcoming Lustmord live appearance in which he starts out by saying,… Read more »
Hey, I’d take it. I liked the Lustmord remixes of Schism and Parabol/a.
It would be a strange remix if the members of Tool were in the studio laying down tracks for a Lustmord remix.
I don’t think the “rumours are true” thing is anything other than a reference to the fact Lustmord is playing a rare show in LA.
They could be recording some new bits not contained in the original tracks that are added to a remix…or maybe they are preparing something for his live show? Just a thought. I’m not that familiar with Lustmord’s process with prior Tool remixes or with live shows.
there you have it. it was all bogus. back to life!
