in the same year that favorites radiohead and portishead are about to project wonderful releases of their own; its official, the new tool album 10,000 days arrives on may 2nd in exactly 16 days. [dont get too confused.]
all good patient tool fans around the world have been waiting 5 years for the new tool.
the first single, vicarious, was originally set to hit radio this monday.. except a lil easter celebration was made in vein and the music arrived early this weekend. [thanks charlie!]
still inside the same quality of epic alternating time signatures, odd chord/note progressions, explosive pulsating drumming, understated BEAUTIFUL chaotic bass lines
true listeners know, tool takes time.
the band’s personal time to make the art and our own time to lay back, vision, anticipate and surrender.
im ready to let go again.
the universe is hostile, so impersonal
devour to survive — so it is, so its always been
we all feed on tragedy, its like blood to a vampire
vicariously, i live while the whole world dies
much better you than i
