Tool plan live CD/DVD from next tour

That's right. According to Harddrive Radio and Launch Radio Networks, Tool will be recording selected dates on their upcoming North American tour for a live CD and DVD.

Although the band records all its shows, Danny says that they'll only be picking the best of the best for the CD/DVD, as opposed to releasing a recording of every show, a la Pearl Jam. You can read the rest of the [short] interview and article here.

Big thanks to Greg and October_Midnight for the find.


Lustmord made a small update on his Myspace about the Puscifer Project.

"I'm currently recording a couple of tracks with Maynard for his Puscifer project. We're both very pleased with developments so far and it's proving to be a lot of fun. Mayanrd's pretty busy with some other band at the moment (something about a tour), but we'll work on the tracks and as when time allow."

Lustmord is also working on a new album Hydra Head for a fall release.

About that rescheduled San Antonio show...

...AKA, theruiner screwed up.

Ok, as I mentioned in an earlier story, the Tool show in San Antonio has been rescheduled. However, it turns out that everything else about that story was bupkiss. Maybe my brain was fried from studying, or maybe I'm just not too bright, but I didn't realize that the story had incorrect information, and for that I apologize.

Ok, so, straight from Ticketmaster, here is the real deal on the rescheduled show: It's going to take place at the AT&T Center in San Antonio on March 26th. Tickets for the original show will be honored at the rescheduled show, according to the AT&T Center's website, and tickets appear to go on sale SATURDAY MORNING, January 20th, at 10:00 AM for the rest of us. I say they appear to go on sale Saturday because the Ticketmaster site lists an obviously incorrect date at the moment, but I am going to try and get a confirmation from Ticketmaster tonight or tomorrow.*

Ok, with all that out of the's the link.

Big, big thanks to ad infinitum and halo eighteen at ETS for keeping up on this. Also, thanks go out to Gary, who went out of his way to personally e-mail me about the incorrect story.

Ok, so I did it again. It appears that the tickets will not be going on sale this Saturday, but instead go onsale TOMORROW, Friday, January 19th. Unfortunately, I didn't get word of an onsale time, but general rule of thumb for Ticketmaster seems to be 10:00 AM.

Also, please note that Ticketmaster still doesn't list this onsale date on their site, and, unfortunately, their customer service line is closed for the night, so I can't confirm it right now. So, it's possible that the onsale info might be incorrect, but I wanted to at least give everyone a heads up on what I've heard.

And, don't forget, your original tickets will get you into the show.

Update #2:
Ok, just checked, and as of now, [1/19], tickets for the show are on sale for anyone interested.

Videos of Undertow recording session

As was first reported on Fourth Eye, videos taken during the recording of Undertow have been posted to Youtube. There are clips of the band destroying a piano with various firearms and implements, Danny wailing away on the drum kit, Maynard giving a tour of the Sound City halls, and Hank Rollins recording his part for Bottom. Very cool stuff, even in as low resolution as it is in.

How did we miss this?

It has been reported on The Tool Page, as well as Fourth Eye, but I felt it bears repeating: Tool's makeup show for their cancelled show from San Antonio, TX last September is on sale now. The show will take place at the AT&T Center in San Antonio on April 10th. You can purchase tickets here.

Big thanks to Fredy_Brown at ETS for the info.
