Tool July 2015 Newsletter

Blair has published the Tool July 2015 Newsletter on Toolband this morning, and this time around it addresses Pluto, interviewing parking bollards, and hints at some further work being done on the new Tool album. It also gives Fourtheye a few plugs!

Okay, by now some of you might be thinking, “fuck this expansive mind-stuff! I’m going to go to the fourtheye site to see if there’s any real news?” Fine, but if you leave now, you won’t hear about my plan to personally interview one of the new parking bollards at the Tool loft/rehearsal space. That’s right! In keeping with my ‘leave no stone unturned, fine-tooth comb’ reporting style, I wasn’t going to let any identity-separation illusion get in my way of finding out what one of the highly-visible barriers thinks about Maynard’s new vocals, which I believe that the band members have heard in some stage of development on a particular track or two? No, sharing my mind with a non-conscious thing seemed like a no brainer…

At also hints that the name of the new album could start with a “P”. Parking Bollards? Pluto Rising? Potato? Puscifers? Any other suggestions from you guys?

Also, don’t forget to head on down to the Baked Potato for one of their fine spuds. My personal favorite is the Chicken Parmesan Potato, washed down with at least two beers.

Wait, I don’t understand how you got out of that that it hints that the new album could start with a “P”… I think I’ve heard before that the album title is usually the very last thing done.

I don’t really get his news letters. To me they just seem like a whole lot of blabbing and mind-fucking to just say very little then leave ya hanging.

Wtf

Is the parking bollard story (yeah I read it all) just a long-winded way of saying all 4 band members were busy at their loft recently because Blair failed to find a car space?

But well done on all the shout-outs Hellboy, even if some come across in his usual sarcastic, facetious tone perhaps.

Hopefully Blair will drop a few more hints or info each month as things get busier at the loft/studio et cetera.

Your first paragraph- Yes, I think that’s what he was saying too.

BTW thx to hellboy for running this joint. I apologize for posting off topic but had to get popped. I always read the newsletters and I don’t know why. Just have to. Maybe he was talking to the Ballard bc everyone was too busy to talk to him.
