This time from Kenneth’s collection:
Yet another interview with Adam today, this time with Crave Online. As with the previous interviews, it largely focuses on the upcoming art gallery, however Adam does talk about the tour, the setlist, Maynards voice and the writing process for the new album: CraveOnline: I know you’re on tour now, but can you tell us anything about the new Tool record?

According the Alternative Tentacles website Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine will be supporting Tool on their San Francisco and Sacramento dates later this month. Check them out, they’re not bad, though personally I prefer Jello with the Melvins. Perhaps we’ll see some more Dead Kennedy covers… Thanks to Tooldude for the tip.
Tour posters are flying at me thick and fast, both from readers and from NOMAD, the guys who print them. Below is a selection of pics I’ve been sent so far! Click to embiggen!

Toolband has confirmed the LA dates, listing only two of them: the 18th and 19th of July. Tickets for these shows go on sale this Friday the 25th at 10am. No word on what happens to tickets previously sold, my guess is that Ticketmaster will contact the fans who purchased them and let them know what will happen. Also no mention of the date on the 21st. Presumably this has… Read More »Tool LA Dates confirmed
