Stuff like this normally is.  Presuming that's the case I'll post a link to it later today.

They're playing Vicarious now.  Tool will be on afterwards.

Digital Bath - Deftones (Justin's pick)

Space Dock - Trans Am (I'm going to guess Danny's pick--correct!)

 

Justin is doing some weird Darth Vader breathing, hope he's feeling alright. Maybe it's hard to breathe through that beard. I absolutely love how Australian people pronounce Maynard.

"Call it writer's block or whatever you want to call it--we're not giving up, we've still got stuff in the oven." - Justin

They're "about 6 and a half in," but unsure what that measurement is. Seems that doesn't mean songs.

 

If A Change is Gonna Come - Sophia (Justin again)

The Demon's Name is Surveillance - Meshuggah (Danny)

 

"Inspiration file...amazed at their technical ability." - Danny "Cruise along and play the songs, don't let the songs play you." Danny really into prog, Justin into hair rock from L.A. They killed the Sunset Boulevard dreams.

"The early days of Tool's formation and firmly grounded in pity." - the interviewer, I think she's cool. "So we'll be hearing a new Tool album within the next...5 years? 10 years?" "I think that's safe to say," Danny.

 

Halfway Home - TV on the Radio (Justin keeps picking dead bass players)

Interview has been really good so far.  Justin has more or less admitted to writers block.  Don't want to give out any hints as to when the album will be ready, as they're aware they've done that before and not delivered.

Justin has also admitted to a fetish for dead bassists.

Doesn't sound like much progress is being made on the album. Justin admitted to writer's block. Maybe we'll see it at the end of 2014.

It was interesting to hear them say that they have been playing hints of new music at their gigs. There is a piece they have been playing at gigs for the last few years now between songs. I bet that is part of a new song, I would hunt it down but im on my phone.

Yeah, was an interesting statement especially since

[spoiler]the only new thing they added sonically to the show was the synth and drum solo, neither of which I think give us much clue to a new song.  The other segue was the one they've been playing a while now.[/spoiler]

You mean like Maynard, and not Meeneerd?

Another couple of old interviews with Maynard and Adam from the Triple J archives that popped up on reddit.  Quite interesting, especially the Maynard one:

I enjoyed their comments on the new album. Gave me more hope to be honest - not that it would be soon, but that it will come, and it'll be amazing.

I think there's no doubt the album will be made at some point, it's all a matter of how much longer and whether it'll be any good.

I think it's even more likely now that they'll probably make a change in direction. I'd expect an EP in the next twelve months before a full length album (which I still think will be a double CD).

One-track experimental synth-based but still the normal members doing their normal things EP. I'm calling it.

Fair enough. I have no problems with that.
