Twitterer (if that is the right term) Ivonna Cadavar posted a pic with Adam Jones from Tool not long ago, with an update of sorts on the new album.

Maynard has given us a refreshing clear answer as to the status of the new Tool album on Twitter this morning, and while it sound like progress is positive, I think we can safely rule out a release in the near future, and probably not until next year: Started getting music files from the boys w the word FINAL in the title a few months ago after 11 years of… Read More »Maynard confirms status of new Tool album

A few hours ago Adam tweeted the photo blow, which would appear to be a severed arm. What is interesting to me is the “toolband.com” plastered all over it. Image from the rumoured The Pot video perhaps? Post your… Read More »Adam posts severed arm

Update: It’s come to my attention that I’ve posted this already. It’s worth watching again anyway for good measure… Aaron Harris tweeted today that he found a series of videos about Danny, recorded sometime around 1996/97.
