I'm not suggesting that there will be a comic released by the way, but if there was I doubt is going to be Maynard as Superman or some shit
Oh I know. I just brought it up because the shared facts of SDCC, Adam's love for comics, and Adam being the packaging guy.

"LATERALUS MAN" - complete with two eye-sawblade weapons, transcends reality to fight for justice!

(*gets stabbed by thug*) This pain is an illusion! Unfortunately not so for you...

Well, like we’ve all been hoping, there is always next Friday :/ I honestly don’t think they will give any news. They will just release the album and then tour dates. That’s my theory. I hope I’m wrong.

I don't think people should get hung up on the idea of info coming on a Friday, there little to no precedent for that.

I'm just impatient that's all. I'll probably moan and groan until I get some info to chew on.

Same. I have ADHD so waiting for news is quite difficult. Lol.

There is no way they are just going to drop the album. Pre-Orders will be up within the next 2 weeks.

Regardless of what the band doesn't do, one sheets should be arriving to stores in the next week or two. Someone will leak it then. I worked at a record shop for 8 years and have a friend looking out for me.

August 30th is only 6 weeks from now. 13 years and a whole bunch of Youtube clips makes these 6 weeks easier to process...

I'm going to predict that there'll be 10 tracks and 78:20 in total. Maybe 6 or 7 pieces of music and 3 or 4 segues but each of those main pieces will be long... like 12 minutes obviously :)

Sounds solid. I'd love for there to be a vinyl ready to buy on release day. Would love to take a drive to the record store and pick up the new Tool album on vinyl. Would be bliss.

I think you nailed it. We didn't get a single we got YouTube mobile clips. We won't get an album title or tracklist from the band it will come from reddit or someone's mate at the record store. Fucking bizarre but whatever.

If we get something physical on August 30th, then there should be at least one factory out there in this world that should have thousands of copies of the new album lying around in a warehouse by.....let's say....3 weeks from now. I guess they will commence production (=pressing) as late as possible.

on the other hand, i've ordered vinyl copies for my own band. it was a tiny german factory and they were able to press and pack 500 per day. a big one might be able to produce a few thousand per day. depending on how complicated the packaging process is and how many copies are about to be produced, production could theoretically start as late as 10 days prior to release.

Yeah I’m taking the family to Atlanta in a few weeks to kill some time. This wait has been brutal. As if I won’t check for news while at the aquarium. Good news is; premier league in three weeks, NFL in four, school starts back up and then the tool cd to wrap it up and follow up with a tour. Fall is lookin good.

For better or worse, my heart is set on it.

Only a drooling twit would think to truly experience Tool solely digitally.

Couldn't agree more. Want that art right in front of me while I'm listening. Just like I did with Aenima, Lateralus and 10k days.

Dude posted this on Reddit just before - I'd forgotten about it - it's different from the promo of similar length used for the music clinic advert, which is essentially the Descending we've heard now.

Bleeds (bleeds?) well into beginning of Descending.

Seems to be more than a jam or part of an evolution that became Descending as we know it now. Justin in particular is polished and pronounced enough to make me think it's not something they'd scrap.

So... Ascending??



I'm wondering if this is what Invincible eventually became. I saw them debut(?) this in Reno and it melted my face. Thought we were actually getting a new song at first, and whether or not it's on the new album, I'll always consider this one of the best Tool riffs/jams ever.

Did anyone here go to a clinic last year? Did they play this descending teaser live or is this just the audio for the video? I notice a lot of cuts and bad fades so I’m wondering if this is all snippets from descending? Earlier version? Is it ascending? Sounded great in the car.

screw Blair and his 20 steps to b.s. this is where i get tired of this crap. you cant tell if that meant something or not! 20 days later and not a thing, tech that could be tomorrow too (unlikely prob anyway) but im done caring about this one. Precedent or not about friday, tired of that crap in a newsletter and getting people wondering which leads nowhere! get a real hobby Blair!

good point Boldizar,if news from record stores is what we get next at least thats something. leak the fn thing all around the world too! hahah : p

did people see the photo of Danny with Aloke Dutta in his living room playing tabla the other day?
then a day or so later there was a picture of Justin with Billy Howerdel. here it is again. just wondering if that has any relevance to anything. aaah
