    I think Tool has been leading us on in the press. I absolutely cannot reveal my sources for this. Let's just say that the mixing process has happened.

    Tracklist for Decem:
    Abscissa (13:47) The Awakening (12:03) Gematria (Act I) (14:33) Regresolution (13:56) Divinotus (12:45) Astral (Act II) (12:21)
    Descending (13:53) Decem (12:22) Lesous (Act III) (12:43) Principles of March (12:01) Pascal's Wager (13:46) Zeta (Act IV) (14:27)

    Judging by the song/track titles, we're definitely not being trolled!

    lol those sound like The Mars Volta track titles.

    Tool has like 6/7 songs in their entire catalog that are made up, mystic sounding words. The dozens and dozens of their other songs just have normal song titles. Why do the people who make these fake tracklists always think every Tool song has some gibberish name like that?

    My guess is because of Aenema and Lateralus. It's also a funny way to troll the nerds who would look into what these words might mean in Latin.

    I honestly wouldn't be surprised if they're well into the finishing stages, TBH. This is pretty much how Lateralus was written. How long has it been since all the lawsuit stuff wrapped up?

    They've admitted Maynard's been getting regular updates via a shared Dropbox account.

    At this point I'll have owned and listened to the next Tool album for a calendar year and will still be wondering if it really exists.

    At least Maynard is quick to shoot down these speculations. It's a harsh reminder that nothing's done and it's a tough pill to swallow, but I'd rather have bullshit like this snuffed immediately than hop on the speculation band wagon. Until Tool's website posts and confirms two things: Album title and release date, I won't believe anything that gets posted anywhere else.

    If the track times are correct, that would mean the record is 158 mins, 24 secs. That's 2 jam-packed CD's.

    That sounds like an infomercial at 3:00 a.m. for some box set of '70's Classic Rock hits.

    At this point I'll take what I can get.

    New Tool: 2018 at the earliest. Anyone want to bet?

    The Pot and Opiate videos: 2019, featuring a weird character wandering thru a weird world, populated by weird creatures doing weird things. How about suprising us and breaking new ground for once. I bet the new songs adam's working on are the same old drop d riffs. I love tool but they've become so predictable. That new 'section' of a song they've been playing does nothing for me. Its a fucking shame.

    I looked closely at the previous album title, 10000 Days.
    Binary 10000 is sixteen = 2016.
    'D' in Days ponts to December, and remaining 'ays' sounds like 'eighth'

    Well, the latest is from the newest newsletter posted yesterday. I'll bold the stuff that stood out to me.

    Knowing that Danny would be visiting me in the desert for a couple of days, I scratched out a list of questions for him to answer about how things were progressing with the new material and about some other Tool projects that are currently in the works. You know, things that he (and the other band members) never get tired of being asked about. After picking him up at the airport, with the carmometer showing 122 degrees!, I suddenly remembered that when I first suggested that he come and hang at my new place for a while, the selling point was that it would be a good chance for him to relax while kicking back in a Tiki-themed bar and/or trying his skills at video poker. In keeping with a new policy of moderation, we could also hunt for some obscure esoteric books on our obscure esoteric books list - something that we hadn't done for quite a while. So, with that in mind, I tossed my page of questions into the trash.However, the next day while having lunch at "Bootleggers" - a 'Sinatra's Way' Italian restaurant on the Vegas south strip - I casually asked about the status of the new album (Namely, how the writing/arranging sessions were going?) - to which he replied, "Good!" While enjoying his "House Specialty" lasagna to the sounds of an excellent pianist (and master harpist, Mariano Gonzalez!), he added that they were very close to knocking out another tune, and that as soon as it was finished, they would send a recording of it to Maynard. When I asked if this was the song with the REALLY unique time signatures, he told me that they had already finished the music on that one. Okay, admittedly, not exactly stop the press news, but what can I say, other than that they are still grinding away on new material four days a week, and would be back at it later in the week (once Danny returned from the Las Vegas glitz, Justin from celebrating his wedding anniversary and Shelee's birthday in palm-swaying Hawaii, and Adam hunting for glossy treasures at Comic-Com 2016 in San Diego).The other question that I asked Danny concerned the fate of the broken vintage Pepsi machine from the loft - whether or not it had been repaired? Now, here was something that brought a quick response: Yes, he was determined to have it fixed, with or without the 'original' parts. Finally, what about the so-called "curveball", to which he replied that he still wasn't sure when it would be made available for public consumption, but that "It turned out dang good, though!"So, what didn't I ask him? Well, a few things, with the first being: Excluding vocals, segues, etc., what percentage of the new album material was complete? I also didn't ask him if there were plans for any guest musicians to perform on the new record, or if they had discussed any cover artwork concepts? Finally, I didn't ask him if there would be anything that was shockingly different from the signature Tool sound on the new album? Sorry, maybe next time - when there might be some answers that I can post. For now, keep in mind the old adage: "No news is good news." It was time to head to the long bar of the dimly lit "Golden Tiki" for a tropical libation (and glass of ice water!).I almost forgot one last item. On second thought, why even bother to bring it up? Oh, what the hell... Danny did mention the possibility of something happening after the record was released, but that this was definitely NOT a sure thing at this point. Since this involves something that may or may not even happen, I won't (if fact, can't) expand on it - only to say that: if it does happen, now that would be stop the press news!

    The whole thing is a quick and easy read. That's a good newsletter.

    And actually gives at least a glimmer of things to come. At this point it's almost crazy to actually get concrete info, lol. As sad as it is to say that.

    The 'grinding away on new material four days a week' caught my eye. I wonder how long they've been writing at that pace...

    edit: Oh, and the 'possibility of something happening after the record was complete' line at the end too. First thought steers towards a tour announcement of course, but that almost seems like a given anyways...hell, they're touring a bit this year. Maybe once it's done they'll release a teaser or something?

    Obviously they are going to do a tour with nine inch nails.

    Double bill with Tapeworm tracks in the middle. Nine Inch Nails covers Counting Bodies Like Sheeps with Maynard.

    I very highly doubt that's even a possibility. I mean, if it was going to happen it would have happened many years ago, right? But, for whatever reason, it's the first thing that popped in my mind when I read that.
