Revolver look back on Lateralus

  • Tool

The latest in a series of Tool Lateralus retrospectives can be found on Revolver, with Justin, Adam, Maynard and Danny all chiming in.

Fresh from Adam’s Instagram (well, a few days old anyway, since I was out in the field for a week) is a preview of some new Tool package. There’s not a lot of detail on what it is! Some speculate that this could finally be some kind of vinyl – possibly a Fear Inoculum release, Lateralus anniversary edition, or possibly even a box set? It’s hard to say much more… Read More »Adam Jones teases Tool package prototype?

Some “Wicked” Tool news coming soon?

Some “Wicked” Tool news coming soon?

Blair suggests today that some exciting Tool news will be surfacing soon. I can’t imagine a tour is on the cards anytime in 2021, so either it’s tour news that some time off, or something else? New record, live streams, vinyl, blankets – the points of speculation are endless.
