Tool January 2019 Newsletter

Tool January 2019 Newsletter

Some were expecting the latest Tool newsletter from Blair would contain an announcement, and while technically it did, it probably wasn’t the one they are expecting! As has been reported before (I think), Danny has been working on a new book, and it will be out “soon”:

I am excited to announce that Danny’s new book Remember the Future is finally at the printers.  Over three years in the making, the coffee table-style glossy hardcover contains beautiful full color photos of nearly all of the vintage analog synthesizers in Danny’s impressive collection (many being museum quality), along with electronic percussion and related accessories.  The book also features articles by Danny, Chris Pitman, Blair MacKenzie Blake and synth historians Brian Kehew, Jack Dangers, Darrel Johansen and Peter Grenader.

Having just approved the soft proofs as the book’s editor (with some assistance by Greg ‘DailyGrail’ Taylor ), my best guess would be to look for the book (with the first edition limited to only 300 copies) in Danny’s webstore in a couple of weeks.  Should the printing and shipping process go faster (or if pre-sales are offered), I will be sure to give an update.

Sounds interesting to me, I’ll consider grabbing a copy when they go on sale!

Hopefully we get another announcement in the not too distant future!

Blair is a complete idiot. It’s embarrassing for the band that he’s allowed to post on their website.

Blair is far from being an idiot. Try and decipher one of them older newsletters, mind-numbingly obnoxious sure, but written with a prose few can ‘read’ let alone comprehend. You’ll get the news on the album when the BAND sees fit, not Blair.

Saw this on Twitter today (and yes, it’s MJK’s official acct that responded):

@mjkeenan Is the rumors (sic) true about the new album dropping in April?

MJK’s response:
No.

It’s a complete joke at this stage.

If this album is actually amazing and coherent, I will eat my hat.

I saw this as well… We’ll see.. It’s just a dumb question to ask the band at this point.

I think their inconsistent answers were meant to be a deterrent but clearly to the fans less in the know… They don’t fucking care.

Asking Danny Carey at NAMM when the new album is coming out and putting in on YouTube certainly got a lot of views I’m sure.

I’ll submit that Danny was telling the truth and then when it blew up and the media commented everywhere on it MJK cracked the shits perhaps something along the lines of “Everyone was supposed to keep quiet about it!”.
Kneejerk reaction from MJK, “Screw them, we’ll push it to May”.

Just wanna chime in and say I’m on Team Blair. He is cool as shit, funny as hell, and a great writer I look forward to reading every month. Thanks and much appreciation to him. On the other side of things, what IS boring, repetitive, and annoying is all the constant bitching and moaning, whining, and criticism. Nobody gives a flying fvck how highly you esteem your nerdy know-it-all shit opinions. I hate reading that worthless diatribe each month (multiple times). You’d think Toolfans would be saying cool positive shit and making people laugh and making this a fun place.… Read more »

Don’t expect it to improve with new Tool music. People will inevitably bitch about them even more, sadly.
