Tool Catalog is Finally Online

Finally!  Tool has put all of their albums online available for streaming.  I used to go to YouTube to listen to the albums (If I didn’t have it available from my own collection) so I’m very happy about this.  Maynard James Keenan says:

“Our obsession with, and dream of, a world where BetaMax and Laser Disc rule has ended. Time for us to move on. But never fear. There’s a brand new thing we think you’re really gonna dig. It’s called Digital Downloads and Streaming. Get ready for the future, folks!”

A few hours after the albums were released on iTunes, all of their albums were on the iTunes Top 10!

Tool and their Golden Tickets

Tool is going to have a little fun with their limited edition anniversary reissue of the “Opiate” EP.  The EP will be released in a limited run of 5,000 copies with 5 different 1,000 piece runs with different graphics and bonus matrial only sold on their website on March 26th.  They are putting five “Seal of Xatanitos” certificates in random copies of the EP and you won’t know the prize unless you win.

Better get to their website and get that EP!

Tool On Tour

Tool is ready to go on the road for a summer tour beginning on June 19th. Their last studio album was ‘10,000 days’ back in 2006 so it’s not like they have any new music but it will be nice to see them again. They are such a great band live. If you remember Maynard James Keenan started his winery ‘Stronghold Vineyards’ a few years back so he’s been busy with that. There are hints that a new album is underway. Here are the tour dates.

19 – New Orleans, LA – University of New Orleans Lakefront Arena
20 – Houston, TX – Toyota Center
22 – Cedar Park, TX – Cedar Park Center
23 – Oklahoma City, OK – Ford Arena

26 – St. Charles, MO – Family Arena
