    There's a primarily west coast tour coming up. Just wondering if anyone is going. I can't believe they're skipping Seattle. I'm going to the Portland show...

    YES! March 25th in Houston.

    I ordered tickets online DIRECTLY from the venue (Toyota Center) at the very second they went on sale, and the closest I got was nosebleeds at a good angle to the stage. Problem is the Toyota center is NOTORIOUS for comping waaay too many seats to shows and you can pay scalped prices (not from original ticket purchasers, from a-holes who got the tickets for free from their businesses or other such methods) or just pay regular price and get nosebleeds. The sound reinforcement is good there, so the show sound good at least. I heard Dream Theater at Verizon Wireless theater and the mixing was terrible, couldn't hear the bass to save your life.

    Does a tour mean that a new album is in the works?

    Wow, thanks for the heads up. I didn't know they were on tour. Got a ticket and making the drive to Portland! Never seen them, been wanting to for ages ...

    Not that I've heard. That would be pretty awesome though! It's been years since they did 10,000 Days

    There is a new album "in the works"...but anyone following Maynard and how busy he has been since they spoke about a new album the last time they played in Australia....dont expect one very soon.

    If i were to guess at earliest...spring 2015

    That is unbelievable. Danny Carey is on record saying they thought they'd get into the studio late 2013.

    I can't believe it has taken them so long to come out with an album. Getting tired of waiting.

    Yep...the last thing Blair had mentioned about a new album was "I dont expect them to be in the studio any time soon"

    That was about 3months ago

    Gaynard has been very busy since Dannys interview.

    They are coming to Spokane very soon. Unfortunately, I'm going to have to miss this one.

    I would love to see Tool again. I saw them in the 90's. It was their first time in San Antonio. The Melvins opened up for them. It was my wife's first concert. Damn, she got off to a good start, my first concert was Def Leppard.

    Does Maynard even get along with the Tool guys? I see pics of Chancellor, Adam, and Danny all the time doing different things, never Maynard.

    I swear they are the most bizarre band ever. If they weren't so talented I would have lost interest.

    IIRC, Maynard lives in AZ and the rest of the guys are in LA.

    Edit...This was just released. Sounds more promising than Blairs last quote. But I wouldn't change my guess of a new record around spring 2015



    "So, what else?

    Justin is back from his daring adventure involving the handling of a falcon… or a hawk… or a hawk-shaped military drone? Likewise, Danny has returned from Hawaii, where he is still trying to smuggle out enough curly koa wood to make a new drum (or nifty salad bowl, if I’m to believe an article in the current issue of VegNews magazine). And with Adam’s WWE wrestling buddies having exited the loft after an encore of golden hits - leaving the place no worse for wear, I might add - the fellows are back in the no picnic business of writing/arranging of new Tool material. So, if you saw Danny at Monday night’s Jayhawks game in Kansas, rest assure that this was his decoy-double getting in some much needed practice before the tour begins."

    Someone just posted it in a Tool FB Group.
    Are you a Tool Army member?
