People need to grow up, anyone temember before Ænema came out the was this big wooplah over when it was and all tha fans were pissed off and waiting, same shit is happening here, and Ænema turned out to be their best album so chill the fuck out and wait. As the song goes…. Be patient

Maynard James Keenan August 18, 2013 at 10:00 pm

The album is never coming out. Sorry guys.
Thanks for the money though! I really enjoyed it!

Maynard?  Are you sure you dont want to tell everyone in here or on facebook what you think about their opinions?  maybe quote some of your lyrics in the process.  It seems to be the trend.

Lets see if I can figure out your code though. “The album is never coming out.”  never… n = 13th letter of the alphabet. e = 5th. v = 22.  add the two e’s together and you get 10!  does that mean your code really says the new Tool album will be out Oct 22, 2013?!?

The Album is 10-13-2013 coming out!!  No apologies needed Maynard!!  I’m sure there is plenty more money on its way!

Hello. I doubt that was a reply by Maynard above ^^
If there isn’t going to be a new album released by Tool it needs to be put on the websites news feed.
We’re all waiting, patiently.

Hey Maynard. I have stolen every album you have ever put out so thanks for the free music ass hole. Here’s something completely off subject. It was Valentines Day and you and the other band members of A Perfect circle were performing, and by the way you sucked I do understand that playing in a barn in Texas is rather soul sucking and I did enjoy the joke you And Josh Freeze came up with “this side of the barn go he and this side of the barn go ha”. I was in the front row and my pants fell down and the crowd was so tight I could not get my hands down far enough to pull them up. So It was my first concert I have ever been to that I rocked in my boxers, good times. I like the Judith wine it makes me feel warm and takes away my misery give me a baker’s dozen please. I can’t wait to steal your new album.

Leave Maynard alone Adam Jones should have won the best guitarist only reason he didn’t is because dimebag is dead and people felt pity. I look forward to the new album I am sure it will rock no matter when it comes out I hope there is a tour also I have never seen a better band live than tool so fuck all u haters shut the hell up

The only cd’s ive ever purchased with the exception of pinkfloyd turned out to be mjk shit.  TooL APC and Puscifer.  I spend my money on stupid shit anyway.  Happy meals n such so…  This music helped me to recognize how totally blind def and dumb this mass produced fucktard was.  At least aware of my ego and how unimportant and stupid i was and will always be.  This pussy is off that self appointed pedestal of shit.  I spent my paper energy just to repay that debt.  Mcdonalds and coke will never forgive me for a weeks pay they never received.  Oh the fuck well.

Eh, sorry about all the psychofan comments. Thought I should post something instead of being the quiet one so that not all toolfans get a bad name. New album or not, I’ve always enjoyed your inspirational music and probably always will, and I think you’re doing good things in the world so keep on doing what you feel you need to do, or what your path is and don’t worry what anyone else thinks. If that means a new album so be it, if that means growing wine so be it, or even something totally different. Anyways, keep up the good work, good luck and thank you for being that open to show us something.

I enjoyed the bit on believing in some kind of magic or you are basically empty. That really resonated with me. Thanks Dude!

But, Marc- not a super interviewer if I may so.

Not all tool fans are junior high kids, Marc. I’m 59 and I think the music kicks ass. I can’t understand most of the words and I don’t bother to look them up. They are not the point to me. Danny Carey, Adam Jones and Justin Chancellor and Maynard are brilliant. Don’t put it down because it’s challenging to your sensibilities.

b.t.w. thanks for having him on. Really enjoy your podcasts!

not all are every
anyone or anything
never is one or even two the most of any
any can… and will what most can every
every one still.. not shaking but standing by
so holding steady
that vibrationnnnnnn
that one of many
two become everyone
cannnnnnnoooootttt they ever see one

moving all till the two and every 1
come up til the two an every one
everyone so alone till I become the only one

consciousness till I fall unto a two become the one
till the two become one
I am not we
I am not we
the two become us and
2 come unto
unto I become 1
UNTIL IIIIIIIIIII iiiiiiiiii become 1
