Meshuggah have heard demos for the long-awaited Tool album with guitarist Marten Hagstrom describing them as “the best I’ve heard”

- You like noisy music?
- Yes. The louder the better. Stops me from thinking.
- You don't like to think? What do you like?
- Never thought about it.

Also that was actually a really good newsletter in my opinion. Tongue in cheek, but still a decent actual reminder about things that if this IS your favorite band, you should probably subscribe to.

Hopefully the upcoming Tool and MJK VIP sessions will yield some actual info.

I also think there's a chance they might play an actual, completed new song at the shows later this month. Or at least a more fleshed-out offering of Descending with lyrics.

Unless I missed something, I find it very unlikely MJK participates in the VIP sessions

I imagine he's referring to the MJK Book Reading shows.

Regarding Meshuggah, I seem to have vague memories of them (probably Haake) talking about hearing demos before. I'm too lazy to check the links, but is this new news?

Given people's penchant for spending more time recording videos on their phones than actually watching the show, id be stunned if they premiered a new song live. After all this time, I'd just be very surprised if they allowed their first new song in over a decade to be heard across the world as a shitty sounding bootleg.

I doubt it was any one thing that made him post that newsletter. The negativity is pretty unrelenting on the internet at times.

I think Ravenpig may be talking about Blair's new post, regarding the misinterpretation of the September Newsletter...
So Long, and Thanks for All the Tool.

KK - haven't even seen this new post yet

Update: Yep, clickbait sites are weird. I remember reading one where Justin "confirmed" a double album in that Bass video from a few weeks ago. They must have watched the directors cut or something, because I didn't remember that part (or even some kind of implied double album comment)

Tomas was talking to Danny just before the weekend, and it was like, ‘Well, it will probably take a while.’


If Danny Carey is saying it's gonna be a while then......yeah, it's gonna be A WHILE......

I thought he may be referring to that reddit thread because he said the whole newsletter was re posted.

Maybe, I wouldn't say that reddit is a clickbait site though.

Yeah, the book tour VIPs.

And I think what the guy from Meshuggah is talking about was last year at Danny's baby shower or whatever - Blair even said on the site that they played some new Tool material for those in attendance. I saw a few pics on social media at the time, I think Josh Freese and some of the APC folks were there, among other musician friends of Danny. I'm guessing that's where he heard the demos.

If they haven't recorded anything yet (which seems likely) then it probably will take a while. Wake me up when it's 2017!
