The truth is, a new Tool record is far from completion. It’s been eight years since the quartet put out its most recent record, 10,000 Days. And while both Jones and drummer Danny Carey tell Rolling Stone that they have more than enough raw musical ideas for an album – and one close-to-complete track – a variety of outside forces have stymied the band’s creative progress.
I had a dream last night that my extended family was in town for a Notre Dame vs Purdue football game and everyone HAD to go. ND was getting the everloving crap kicked out of them - seriously, utterly humiliated - and the rest of my family was practically in tears about it and my wife and I were laughing our asses off and shouting “Boiler up!” I don’t even like football.
I wonder what that means…
—March to the Sea
This song will not stop running through my head.
