From the bands website www.toolband.com
Any tool fan is looking foward to this i'm sure! Its supposed to be the last release by the band.
I heard the album is going to be the first that is really political. I'm not sure what I think about that if its true, I always went to APC for political lyrics and was glad that tool wasn't a popular rock band that wasnt entirely political.
I don't bvelieve that this album will be political whatsoever. Tool is above politics. What do you think about the album art and the "bigger picture?" any theories? I know that the piece from which the revealed jpeg seems to have been copied is really far larger, but is there anything you can tell about how it is "right before your eyes" or anything? Im thinking that it will be animated somehow maybe like aenema 's cover was in order for the image to rotate 360. Who knows, i guess.
Frankly you should know by now not to trust ANYTHING Tool say about their album until it's released. They just love to keep people guessing.
After Aenima and Lateralus, they're going to have to pull of something quite spectacular with 10,000 Days, but since this is Tool we're talking about, I've no doubt they will. I can't wait for it... I've got my ticket booked already to see them at the Download festival this summer.
Vicarious was released today!
