Tool tease demo version of Descending in Music Clinic promo

Tool have released a video promo for their upcoming Music Clinic tour, and in a pleasant surprise it features a recording (presumably some form of demo) of the track Descending frequently played live over the last half a dozen years.

Adam also offered a few thoughts on the clinics via Instagram:

Very excited about the upcoming #ToolMisicClinic ‘s. The concept originated from fans wanting to connect & interact with us personally.
An evening to Hang & Learn about what makes Tool tick. 🤔💭 We did this production in Tempe Az and it was really great! We will play and talk and mingle. Exclusive VIP commemorative merch is included and special #Tool memorabilia will be on display. & Don’t let the venue size fool you. *These are SMALL & intimate events (sectioned off to one part of the building). Much better than a room at a Convention Center… #VIP gatherings are limited to just a few hundred guest ONLY. 🙌🏼 ❤ Toolband.com

Teasing with ‘new’ music… Struggling to sell tix?

Man, I hope this is not an indication on the direction the mixing is taking. The live snippets of Descending sounded amazing and open wide, this sounds, well poor.

Oh man this is awesome! I can’t wait for them to do this clinic over here in Cali. As for the quality of music… This is demo quality for sure… it’s a quick promo so don’t get so uppity about it.

I saw part of their music video for Opiate which has the re-recording of the song with 5 minutes added to it when I went to VIP last year. Production on that was fucking amazing! Why is everybody still so pessimistic about TOOL even though we’ve received all of this awesome news lately?

I’m STOKED!

I would really love it if Tool released that version of Opiate. It’s funny how people perceive things. I am super excited for the new album more than ever now. I unfortunately can’t attend the clinic tour but hopefully they have more new music to showcase for those that do attend.

Yeah I’m really hoping the release it. What I heard at VIP is really amazing and the video that accompanies it is just fantastic.

It’s either a demo or direct sound from a live performance. I see people on YouTube that think this is from the album. LOL…..

It’s a very cool promo that PROBABLY should have been released at the beginning of this news. I got a ticket anyways, but this did help my hype a bit….I just have to not think about the 2 days wasted in a plane.

sounds like a soundboard recording to me

This ‘song’, which is only a segment of the oldest of their newest songs that allegedly exist, sounds……like a regurgitated 10,000 Days title track alternate. If this is how they expect to build hype for the new album, it’s not working on me. I’m sure I’m very wrong about all of this, but the small impression this very tiny segment of music has been making for almost 3 years now has me a bit discouraged.

I think its a great piece of music and cant wait to hear what MJK adds to it… Its all gone quite regarding recording tho. Has Maynard finished his bits? Still on for a 2018 release?

To me this is reminiscent of when ‘Divorced’ was released in 2000 just before Salival and Lateralus.
My 4th eye is tingling.

Yeah, I bet something similar happens this time… at least, that’s what I’m hoping. A Salival type release with the new Opiate, Problem 8 (if it’s real), and perhaps live versions of the extended Schism, Stinkfist, etc. would be great. I can dream.

If Problem 8 existed it would have been shared online years ago.
It’s just classic tool trolling.
Similar to pink floyd’s ‘Publius Enigma’.

Just saw a post on Facebook that all drum tracking is done except for a segue.
