Okay, no more effing around. It's on it's way now. Check out the words on the Schism DVD single. It says new release "Spring 06" :drool:
(I know it's a little hard to read)

By the way, the singles are worth picking up. :cool:

That would be awesome news if it's true. Didn't the lead singer find Jesus and walk away from the band?

Launch Radio Networks reports: TOOL has entered the mixing stage on its new album, according to sources close to the band, and is looking at an April or May release for the disc, its first since 2001's "Lateralus".

Actually, we're both right, this is funny:

"Finding Jesus"

On April 1, 2005 Maynard announced as an April Fool's joke - to the shock of many of his fans and friends - that he had "found jesus" and would be abandoning the recording of the new Tool album temporarily, possibly permanently.

Kurt Loder of MTV contacted Keenan via email to ask for a confirmation and received a very nonchalant confirmation. When Loder asked again, Keenan's response was simply "heh heh". Loder also noted that Keenan had not capitalized Jesus, uncommon for someone who had just converted to Christianity. The announcement was most likely inspired by Brian "Head" Welch's 2005 decision to leave his band KoЯn to dedicate his life to Christianity.

Every year they play an April Fools joke and every year they pull it off. It's pathetic how these things blow up. A couple of years ago the band died in a plane crash or something. They even made everyone believe they were releasing some suprise album in between Ænima and Lateralus. You'd think people would see it coming by now.

I will still get the album thoughThere's something about Tool that alot of Tool fans don't get. they exploit their hardcore fans because they know they can get it out of them. Their music, their artwork, their videos, they put in 100% and always come out with masterpieces. But if you listen to their music they're trying to tell you not to live your life through someone else, to think for yourself and don't idolize him. but they do anyway. So he makes fools out of them by doing exactly what you're saying.

I'm happy with the DVDs. I love having the videos and the artwork is incredible. To me it's a personal collectible. If you're looking for something new, this isn't going to satisfy you.

I was a member oof the (free) TOOL fanclub since 1992. Then around 2000 the TOOL Army started and I didn't join because it's $50-$100/yr for... garbage. I miss my old newsletters.

Pearl Jam still has the best fan club though. Always has

First come first served obviously. That alone is worth the 100$. Which, actually, they've never asked for again. it was a 1 time fee I paid a while ago.

Found an article posted on a Tool forum that has a review of the new album (due in MAY!!) by I think Kerrang! Magazine.

If this is true and they're gonna be including Meshuggah influences.... OMFG!


Tool are the final headline act to be announced for this years Download festival. The three day-event, which takes place at Donington Park on June 9,10,11 will see the enigmatic LA art-metallers closing the proceedings on the Friday evening on the Main stage. It will be the band's first UK appearance since 2002.

"Were really excited, " says bassist Justin Chancellor. "Its a huge honour for us to be asked to close Friday night at the horny mother of English rock festivals. I always imagined playing Donington as a kid, so I wont be taking this opportunity lightly. This is the kind of experience weve been patiently working towards - cant wait, see all you bastards there!"

Tool are gearing up to return with their first new collection of material since 2001's gargantuan 'Lateralus'. Kerrang! was granted an exclusive listening session to the just-completed, as yet-untitled fourth album, which is due out May, and can reveal that anyone expecting the shadowy Californian quartet to have gone soft with age willl be sorely disappointed. True to form, Tools upcoming opus is a 77-minute prog-metal odyssey, packed with plenty of eight minute-plus twisted riff-a-thons, odd-tempo polyrhythms and the bands trademark, eerie interludes. Its also arguably their heaviest, most punishing material since their 1993 breakthrough album 'undertow'.
The upcoming 11-track album has certainly been the bands most laborious and challenging record to complete, taking a mammoth five years to write (some of the material stems from pre-lateralus sessions), during which keenan recorded and toured with his other band A perfect Circle.
Tool also spent five months, in the company of QOTSA/Melvins engineer Joe Barresi, in three different LA studios over autumn 2005 recording it.

"Weve all been listening to a lot of Meshuggah" admits guitrist Adam Jones. "I see a lot fo them in us and us in them, and they really have a very experimental prog side to them. I dont think it was like, 'Okay right here were going to play like Meshuggah', but more, 'Oh my god thats come out a messhugah moment'."

"We have the most retarted president weve ever had, and were frustrated and thats the reason its a little heavier this time" reveals drummer Danny Carey. "that level of frustration back like when we first got hte band together: we were products of that ................ing Reagan thing, we were pissed off and bummed-out, we had that angst, and now its coming forth again: like it or not were products of our environment. Were pissed off again"

No stranger to weaving social and political frustrations into his tortuously articulate lyrics, singer MJK who released the politically-motivated covers album, 'eMOTIVEe' with APC in 2004, has chosen another approach this time around.

"I think for me, and this is just personally, the last few years have really been crushing" Keenan confesses. "For me, as an artist, I needed to see on some level if speaking my mind would actually inspire people - you see the sky falling and you feel like youve got to say something. I think of prior tool albums 'AEnema' and 'Lateralus', lyrically, I had this idea of trying to share things and push some kind of higher purpose - enlightenment, this global consciousness thing - and everything thats going on nowadays has kind of left me a little disappointed, a little bummed.

"So I think on this album Ive talked more about my personal stuff, things that I needed to get off my chest," he adds. "Its a little cynical and its almost like coming from a sad place. Theres some hope in it, but its more back to rock and roll basics, just experessing some very big sadness thats from the gut."

"This is our blues record, were singing the blues!" Jokes Carey.

"The difference is before, we had that young spunk and we thought we could actually say something and help people realise these thigns, " continues Keenan. "But now, the anger is more of a frustrated anger, and me sitting back and going, 'Okay, im going to shut up now, Im going to stop ranting and trying to be chicken little telling you that the sky is falling, Im going to just let you guys get hit in the head'."

Tools as-yet-untitled album is due to hit shelves in May.

An Honest Question....what are the band's beliefs?

I used to have their CD's when I was a teenager and my mother found them and told me that Tool were "worshippers of the Devil" or something and made me throw them out. I of course reobtained them without her permission. ;)

I have heard rumors about the drummer and his father being affiliated with that sort of thing but nothing concrete. Just curious if my mother was overreacting or if she knew what she was talking about.

They just don't believe in blind faith in any religion. They explore their options with an open mind and come up with their own set of beliefs, and they try to inform us that there is more out there then what we've been taught, we just gotta look for it. It's cliche now, but in a nutshell: "think for yourself, question authority".

Or you can just think about anal sex or masturbation and then listen to the lyrics, because that also works. :lol:

HAHAHHAA...thanks HitmanNot a problem. If you haven't already, check out their last album "Lateralus". It's a very positive album, quite unlike any of their previous work. They have their lashing out song (Ticks & Leetches), but overall it's very emotional and much less angry.

"So crucify the ego, before it's far too late
To leave behind this place so negative and blind and cynical,
And you will come to find that we are all one mind
Capable of all that's imagined and all conceivable.
Just let the light touch you
And let the words spill through
And let them pass right through
Bringing out our hope and reason ...
before we pine away."
