Forget who asked it, though it was definitely someone on these forums. Maybe they could chime in?

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

How the intermission was presented was certainly the intention of the question, for sure. The question just wasn't clearly stated and/or misinterpreted.

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

Hey Junior, any inside information you can share on why the intermission happens the way it does? Instead of keeping the lights lowered and some Tool-ish music playing while the guys take a break what's with the silence and turning the lights back on? Yep, for me this killed the atmosphere. Felt li...

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

For whatever reason, it feels fairly comfortable to stay away from the new recordings until after I see them in a few days. This will almost certainly be my only chance to ever hear Tool play live music that I've never heard before.

As much as I wish there was, none of the sources I speak to say there are any plans for a release of anything following the show.
Do you think this means they simply don't know, or do you think they could be skeptical a release is imminent based on other contextual knowledge?

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

Yeah, it's a bit intriguing that Tool seems prepared to play a new song without releasing the studio version first (assuming it's not dropped tomorrow).

But hey, good for them.

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

So they're debuting stuff on an outdoor festival stage knowing the rest of the world is going to see/hear it though some shitty crowd recording. No complaints, but that's just... weird I don't think it's how anyone really wants to see it go down, but here we are. I half expect that the festival sho...

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

What's the minimum notice the band might resonably give before dropping a single? I assume a digital single release wouldn't require much notice at all. Would radio markets need advance info?

Just curious - asking out of a bit of ignorance on the subject.

$20 ticket to Epicenter? That's super cheap - are ticket sales that bad?
After a quick search, I couldn't find any tickets available for $20. Someone told me Epicenter had something like a buy one get one free (or buy two get one) promotion a couple months ago.

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

I'm worried the 18 minute song will be shit and a large part of the album wasted. That's the kind of negative hype people need to be getting on board with. Their track record on long songs is flawless, so I have no such concerns If I remember correctly, Adam mentioned that Descending was a preview ...

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

I imagine they'd prefer to release details as soon as possible, to keep leaks from dampering an official announcement.

I assume timing of promotional activities also plays a significant role.

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

So what's the deal with the anagram?

Admittedly, I haven't kept up with album rumor mill - so I may be missing some context. Tool doesn't seem to release information in code as often as fans would like to believe. Any thoughts?

Vicarious is just kinda mah and i could do without it Vicarious bumps! How can you have that opinion? Danny's drumming goes deeper than bone and that is possibly Adam's most gnarly riff ever. Probably my favorite album opener from them. The bridge in Vicarious is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING - check it out a...

Anyone else get tickets for their headlining dates? Damn expensive, $165 for good seats after TM takes their cut.
Grabbed some decent/mediocre seats for 120 each including fees and taxes. Seems like supply and demand are the biggest reason for the price - Louisville sold out very quickly.

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

Keep expecting a few shows to be added in May. Seems odd that they'd preform three festivals a week apart in the Eastern US. Junior, would that be unusual?

I wonder if the the the new record will have an instrumental track? That could further explain why Maynard isn't completely certain the "inst" are tracked. Seems like an instrumental track would be the lowest priority to finish, since Maynard would be needed for all the tracks with vocals (and his a...

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

Would it be reasonable to assume that more dates could be added to the Eastern US tour? I suppose the already-announced festivals have proximity restrictions and other rules regarding when bands can promote/disclose other planned shows.

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

Yeah, they've never taken this long before in the studio. I was always under the impression they worked up the material until it was note perfect, took it to the studio, banged it out and three months later it was recorded, mixed and mastered. It's now been eight months in the studio and as far as ...

Re: Ratndom Tool Social Media thread

"Rehearsal'' by definition would imply practice for an upcoming performance, though that doesn't appear to be possible since APC is just starting a tour.
