As Blair promised in the last Tool newsletter, there's a bunch of new Tool interviews out this morning (it appears as though there was an embargo on the tour dates and the flood gates are now well and truely open). Here's a few choice cuts from what I've read.

From David Farrier, who's full interview should be in NZ's Rip It Up soon, Danny talks about the newest track they're working on:

David Farrier: I hear you are working on a big “Lateralus” type song for this album… how is that coming?

Danny Carey: Um, really good. I mean we’re still – believe it or not! – still working on it [laughter] – it’s like an ever-evolving thing, it’s probably going to turn into a thing that’s like, uh, a big trilogy type of feel to it, sort of life, just like Disposition and Intension and Triad, like on the Lateralus record or something. It will probably be over a 20 minute piece when it’s all finished, so it will be a good part of the record. We’re dealing with it in sections, but it’s coming together really well, we’re having lots of fun working on it, that’s for sure.

In the Fasterlouder interview I've already posted, Adam talks about plans for the Australian tour:



Adam, you’re responsible for the visual side of things. The Australian tour that you’re just announcing, what should we expect from the visuals on this tour?
AJ: I don’t know. We haven’t gone through the process yet, but it’s a process of talking, agreeing on a setlist and talking to our people and then we have a budget and deciding how can we really push that budget and make it mind-boggling and dark and entertaining for people and, again, give them their money’s worth and have fun, so you just evolve with the ideas. The first step is picking the setlist and then going out there and setting up video screens and lasers and lights and smoke and seeing how you can make it apply and advance what you’re doing on stage. It’s a reflective thing; it’s what I would want to see if I went to see a band. I want to see how they can enhance what they’re doing visually.

Have you talked about a setlist, yet?
AJ: No, sir.

Do you think we’ll be hearing any of the new songs?
AJ: I don’t know. We’re still in negotiations on that.

In the New Zealand Herald there's a brief snippet from Justin talking about the new album, or possibly some other project. Not sure when the full interview is being released:



TimeOut talked to guitarist Adam Jones and bass player Justin Chancellor last week; they refused to divulge much about the new album - or say when it would be out.

"We're currently involved in the biggest project of our lives," is all Chancellor would reveal.

And that's about it for now. No doubt there will be some more - seems as though Fasterlouder are the only Australian media outlet to put out an interview, but I expect there will be more.

YES.

Something I've long suspected. It can't possibly take them 3 + years to write and be just another album. There's obviously something attached to this new project that is so far unrevealed. 

Fuck it, who cares how long it takes to come out now. If it's a career defining, epic son of a bitch then I'll be one happy sunbeam.

Depends. If it sucks, that's a huge chunk of the album wasted.

True. But with their track record and my love of long songs I'm psyched for it.

True - I'd love a repeat of the "LATERALUS" "trilogy". Though I'd rather they do it properly and put it out as an epic EP, or the second disc on a two CD album. Twenty minutes doesn't seem that long to me anymore.

Shit, you're right. Dis/Ref/Triad is longer than 20 minutes. Perhaps they'll hit Pink Floyd Echoes level.

I'm usually not into extremely long songs. I love 10 minutes songs, but the longest song I listen to on a regular basis is only 15 minutes. Any longer than that and I tend to lose interest. This is Tool though, so I'll be down.

6 or 7 good frameworks and one of em is a 20+ minute beast?That's damn near an entire album for a mortal band.
Double disk in the works?

Possibly.
I was hoping that it was six or seven songs completed, plus one 20 minute behemoth still being worked on...

Interesting, as a bunch of other interviewers seemed to have no problems asking and getting a response.  Maybe Tool just like to keep people on their toes.

That other interview apparently ended abruptly as well, wonder if they had a flight or something.

"Still, as Jones says, Tool is their main focus, and since it has been a long time between records, the big question really has to be asked: Are they happy with the new album and how it's going?

Hey, it's not as if we asked when the new album was going to be out. But with that there is a "beep" and Tool are gone, without even as much as a goodbye."

 

Is this what everyone is referring to? Because to me, that's not funny at all. That's fucking rude.

I don't recall anyone ever paying to hear my thoughts and opinions in an interview. Just ignore me, dude. You fail every single time you try to have a go at me.

Think about this: If someone had asked Justin Bieber when his next album was coming out, and he immediately hung up the phone, what would everyone's reaction be?

Yeah, I'd call him rude bastard, too.

Adam will be on Triple J this afternoon so I hear.  No doubt telling them what fuckheads they are.

Also why the fuck isn't anyone asking about the new video?
