Here’s a report from the Baked Potato tonight where Fourtheye reader nxrm had the chance to chat with Danny Carey:
I went to The Baked Potato tonight and caught the first set of the Doug Webb Allstars. During the break I was fortunate to talk with Danny, and I asked him how high Tool fans must be to think the band would be releasing a new album prior to this upcoming tour. He laughed and said, “They can believe whatever they want, but it’s not gonna happen.” He added, and I’m condensing/paraphrasing here, that they hope to get into the studio to record in the Fall.
So there we go – can we stop speculating about the new album coming out this tour? It seems to be pretty rampant on Reddit and other places. I’d love to be wrong and have an album in our hands in June (or even this year) but I can’t see it happening.
I don’t think either Tool or A Perfect Circle have recorded anything yet, and given that the members are tied up in tours for each band, as well as the wine harvest I don’t see any kind of recording happening prior to October. This being the case I don’t think we should expect an album from either band until 2018, something Maynard has alluded to in a few Twitter posts lately.
Apparently the “guest” at the San Bernadino show was confirmed as well, but I’ve been asked to keep that one close to my chest. It’s not anyone that I’ve seen guessed previously, but will say it’s an older band that has been cited as an influence by Tool members in the past.
I don’t think anyone guessed King Crimson yet…
They have, and it’s not. The act in question does have a couple of things in common with KC though.
my guess is the announcement of special guest is being delayed due to a competing show in/around los angeles
how about dweezil zappa, ministry or the residents?
i meant yes, the band.
Danny is not a reliable source of information.
Joni Mitchell sings with maynard
Carl Palmer plays with danny
Jimmy Page shreds with Adam
Geddy Lee slaps with Justin.
Ohhh, or maybe theyll do 21st century schizoid man with the full ensemble band.
ELP is the only band i can think of as far as actually stated influences, besides zeppelin or joni mitchell. but emmerson and lake have passed away, leaving only palmer.
Its fun speculating anyways 🙂
…..wait, isnt Zack De La Rocha and Rage a stated influence?
Also, Failure is always given praise from tool too, oh man. It could be anyone lol
Failure I believe was guessed already, and doesn’t fit the description of “older band”.
Yeah, fun to speculate. Will look forward to the announcement.
Fucking Christ what a train wreck.
Sometimes you gotta have fun in life man 🙂 obviously no one i listed is going to show up to that show. We are all just having fun specualting who the mysterious guest will be for our favorite band.
Manowar covers Lateralus.
Dream Theater covers 10,000 Days.
Tool and Ted Nugent together at last!
It’s supposed to be a secret!
Devo Keenan or Kyuss as suggested on the previous post.
you need Josh and Scott Reeder for a Kyuss reunion and i don’t think that’s happening. plus if Kyuss ever reunited. it would happen on a queens tour. not tool.
newsletter out. nothing doing.
