I agree that Descending is a little bland.

It's bland because it sounds like more rehashed Tool. Me personally, I first listened to this jam over the internet when they started introducing it, and then live in person. My opinion hasn't changed. It sounds like several older Tool songs and it's not interesting to me at all.

I agree, it sounds pretty recycled to me. That's not a significant problem, as Tool recycle stuff pretty frequently, but in this particular case it just sounds like B-side type material to me.

Probably. I don't mean to suggest I think it's a complete song.

I really dig the new Opiate breakdown and am surprised that it's just that. It would fit more into an evolved Tool sound that is taking 10 + years to come to fruition. The Descending jam, whether or not it is just a gutted/looped version of a really long song, doesn't give me the same warm and fuzzy as the re-worked Opiate. The Opiate breakdown doesn't even fit with the fracking song! Also, Wings for Marie was played in gutted form during the Lateralus tour and even that version sounded new and awesome to my ears.

Apparently Aftershock uploaded a picture of Tool then removed it. Interesting

There seems to be stuff around on social media that suggests Danny spoke about festival shows at a recent Volto show, so given this weight of evidence I suspect it's pretty likely to happen.

Agreed, I think it's great but I don't feel that it really fits with the song...I just hope when they eventually release the video, they'll include some kind of downloadable version of the re-recorded song that we can listen to, outside of watching the video (which I have a sneaking suspicion won't be the case).

Damn, another mini tour that doesn't come within reasonable driving distance. :/ Expected it this go around at least.

Will have to sit these out most likely unless work manages to put me in a one of the spots, unlikely though.

Looks like I am going back to "Happy Valley" Utah where I grew up! I have lots of friends that love Tool and haven't been able to travel to see them the last couple of tours. So I am happy they finally get to see them live since 2009. I of course am excited to see them live but sad that there won't be any new material by then.

What a busy year this has been for Maynard, and people still give him crap for being lazy / delaying the Tool album. Unbelievable. Also, two mini tours in one year? Tool is a weird band.

VIP EVENT PRE-SALES

A VERY LIMITED NUMBER of special VIP EVENT TICKETS will be available for the above three Tool shows - this as a salute to our distinguished TOOLARMY members who may want to reap the benefits of membership and get more of the Tool concert experience than that of more casual fans. The VIP PRE-SALE will begin on WEDNESDAY, JUNE 8th at 10:00 AM PDT. Again, this pre-sale is only available to ToolArmy members.

Limit: 2 tickets/packages per person. Anyone who doesn't follow this simple rule will be subject to having his or her ENTIRE ORDER CANCELLED AND REFUNDED!

VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION CONCERNING PRE-SALES:

We've moved the Tool and Tool Army store to an entirely new platform of which all current memberships will be honored! As a Tool Army member, you will still have access to exclusive merchandise through the new store. However, due to security reasons, ALL existing Tool Army members must choose a new password to get started, prior to purchasing pre-sale tickets. (TA members should check the email addresses associated with their memberships as well as their spam box for an email with a link to reset their passwords.)

PLEASE NOTE: If for some reason you didn't get the 'reset password' e-mail that was sent out, TOOL ARMY members can use the following smartURL (smarturl.it/pswdreset) to do so now.

smarturl.it/pswdreset

Again, we'll need you to choose a NEW PASSWORD to get started. This password reset will be for the new store only - and your current password will still be required to access content on ToolArmy.com

It appears they are selling ANNUAL TA memberships. All previous memberships will be honored. Good to know I won't have to renew annually.

Pure speculation, but based on the introduction of an Annual Membership I imagine a Toolband & Tool Army website re-design will happen within a year.

An annual membership fee would be difficult to justify without something new being worked on, that's for sure.
So Long, and Thanks for All the Tool.

C'mon Norm... I know you've been paying attention for the past decade or so... they have had ZERO problem ignoring justification all this time... why start now?

Oh man, no joke...I'm busting up laughing over here. :lol:

It's so true...nothing's going to happen.

I oscillate between delusional optimism and total disappointment as a Tool fan (no pun intended)...and I was just feeling good for moment there.

Thanks for bringing me back down. :D
So Long, and Thanks for All the Tool.
