Tool Xmas ornament for sale on Toolband

Xmas is here I guess, and as seems to be increasingly the case these days, there are some merchandise items available for purchase on Toolband. These include some Xmas ornaments, a lighter and some furry hat thing. If any of this stuff excites you, then head on over and spend some money.

Personally, I’d like to purchase:

  • A live Tool DVD
  • Some kind of Opiate re-recording
  • 10,000 Days vinyl
  • For that matter a reissue of most of Tool’s other vinyl, in particular Aenima
  • Some figurines from Tool videos
  • A coffee table book featuring live photos and other Tool related artworks
  • A Danny Carey drumming instruction (or just performance) DVD
  • Blu-ray HD versions of the Tool videos
  • 5.1 remasters of Tool’s albums
  • A version of Toolarmy where Tool fans get genuine pre-sales, and not just $500 VIP tickets.

For any of those things, I would happily open my wallet. For Xmas ornaments, I shall not.

Some stuff you can buy

Not sure how it could be done, but I’d like to see and/or hear some kind of time-lapse video on how one of their songs is constructed, start to finish, dry erase board scribbling and all. Seems tough given songs like Jambi where the band said Justin’s main riffs were shuffled around quite a bit, but maybe there’s a way.

A live cut of Aenima or compilation of the album’s songs from tours, that original recording is too muddled and Danny has only become more powerful behind the kit.

Things I would like:

– a tool beer cozie
– a tool five star brand 3-ring binder
– a tool casket
– a tool handgun
– a life-size cut-out of danny carey so i can play basketball against him
– maynard’s bathwater
– some socks. Not necessarily tool socks but just decent quality socks.

Thank you for listening tool and i hope your xmas is fun.

good list HB. it’s funny that “new album” didn’t even make your list. even you are waving your white flag where the new album is concerned.

I’ll second this.

They should rename the band to “Shaft”. Cause’ that’s all we ever get. The Shaft.

Send more money.

To clarify, I’m mostly referring to the pre-sales bit. That whole ticket ordeal is nonsense. Not entirely the bands fault, but they should have the fans back when the fans get hosed as bad as they have for tickets this tour.

so tickets for yous that are going/want to go have been hard to get ? that sucks. even if u dont get the best seats usually lower bowl half back show up or so. Maybe their need to perfect things is flat out crippling them with nothing to release other then trinkets and other crap no one wants or they really arent that active as a band and are living the good life. a mix of both maybe? im not saying their not writing a new album,but i think they way they are with that ends up making most things… Read more »

I think TOOL should use a little foresight for future tour plans by selling tickets on TOOL Army to anyone who has been a member for at least ONE YEAR. This would both reward legitimate fans and deter scalpers from joining the site just so they can have immediate access to benefits. Only allowing each member to purchase 2 tickets to each show might also help. This comes from someone who just paid more than double the cost price for a San Diego ticket. I also think TOOL should release a new album. Sometimes bands go far too long between… Read more »

They did that for at least 1 tour. Not sure why they stopped. I got presale tickets the last time they played at the Arts Center in NJ (must be 6-7 years ago). They left tickets at will call with your name. Had to show ID and original credit card to pick up. Was a great system to defeat scalpers.

Since 2006 vinyl has only become more popular and yet no 10,000 vinyl or reissues.

undertow and lateralus are still in print. it’s aenima that needs to reissued… even if it’s not a super duper version.

Might have been at least somewhat funny (probably not) had I actually managed to copy/paste the entire original (double) post instead of inadvertently leaving off “since.”

My main reason for mentioning the tickets idea is that TOOL actually did that for their Australian shows in January 2011.

Before all tickets went on sale in mid to late October 2010, TOOL Army allowed members to buy up to either 2 or 4 tickets I think. It allowed me to get 2 tickets for the Brisbane solo show which is still one of the best shows i’ve ever seen (You Lied, Right In Two, Third Eye).

Hopefully TOOL employ similar strategies in the future to combat this online scalping/bots fiasco…

Interesting list. I’m patient for anything new from Tool.
I really need those new music videos, though.
I’m so curious what they’ve come up with.

It’s odd that Tool haven’t released a 10k Days vinyl, since vinyl has only gotten more popular since 2006.

Those went quick!

Correct me if im wrong, but I thought Blair stated some time ago that Tool did in fact release some copies of 10K Days on vinyl- people may think they have a bootleg or something along those lines, but it was actually released in small numbers.

I believe Blair mentioned he saw a prototype of the 10K vinyl at Danny’s house awhile back. 😉

…and please don’t forget that the Lateralus Vinyl sucks pretty much.
I tested 3 ones and all of them sounded slightly distorted and wobbling.
