IF this is true, it looks pretty Astonishing to me. I wonder if these will chronicle the journey of Emperor Nefaryus.
We may all be as close to the band as that source.

Should be interesting...if true.
Apparently Buzz Osborne (of Melvins) is the "source:" http://teamrock.com/news/2016-06-29/buzz-osborne-shortest-track-on-upcoming-tool-album-is-12-minutes-long
I ain't believing shit until the album is in my ears.
Digging: Julien Baker - Turn Out The Lights
i'm sorry is this a dream theater new album announcement thread
i'd rather look at pictures of dead kids than read the track names that include word "act" and a number in it
Source doesn't work, I bet this is fake.
I love this band to death, but...I dunno. The 75-80 minutes they had with Aenima, Lateralus and 10,000 Days were plenty and perfect for their sound.
Most probably isn't legit though.
"We may all be as close to the band as that source."
remember that someone on sput predicted that they would release a double album. damn
Digging: Converge - The Dusk in Us
You know it's not them because it doesn't have a bunch of ambient garbage filler tracks.
the song lenghts look very fucky for me tho.
2 and half hours of material
all songs exceed the 10 min mark
loool this is the fantasy of evey tool fanboy, literally. whoever did this even tried to toolify all the song names awww cute
Fuck yea ... They are now a full fledged Post metal band - Rosetta , CoL , Dirge , Crib45 song lengths!!!
Digging: Another Heaven - I: You Are Loved
"Source doesn't work, I bet this is fake."
It doesn't work because people still haven't learned to drop the fucking s in htpp for news articles. Wait even without the s it's 403 so yeah fucked up double lol.
"You know it's not them because it doesn't have a bunch of ambient garbage filler tracks."
Maybe they're built in this time?
Also this is most likely bullshit and if it isn't it will suck.
So is this going to be like a proper concept album?
Only metal bands that for me ever got away with a 80+ minute album length are The Ocean (Precambrian), Esoteric (The Maniacal Vale) and Dream Theater (Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence).
I'll believe it when it leaks.
MY GOD WHOEVER THOUGHT OF THESE TITLES IS THE GAYEST DUDE ALIVE I DON'T GET LAID AT ALL BUT THIS MOTHERFUCKER JUST JUMPED OVER THE BOUNDARIES OF EXISTENCE WITH HIS CREATIVITY FUCKING ASTRAL ACT 69 FUCK YOU MAN
Lmao yeah, those song titles are cringeworthy as fuck.
"The Ocean (Precambrian), Esoteric (The Maniacal Vale) and Dream Theater (Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence)."
you were on a good roll until that third one...
Would they really not be releasing any radio singles? Sounds like a bunch of reddit neckbeard shit
this is no more or less credible than every other update we don't need to make a news article every time some random fucker makes up some shit on the internet jesus christ
how long can you guys ignore the cringe, who gives a shit if it's real, oh my god zeta act 666 fuck me
"you were on a good roll until that third one..."
Haha, sorry man, I dug it. Not DT's best, but still damn good and way better than that turd they released last year.
keep that title
fucking super long songs nice...if this true
L M AO really?
Digging: Options - Driftwood Metaphor
How the fuck did they get exact to the second time lengths this far before release? like seriously?
i'd love this kind of album if it wasn't made by tool and wasn't excruciatingly boring
LOL. This is fake. No way this is real.
This album is not happening.
@dick was more about the band itself tbh
ye honestly this is fake af. they didnt even record the songs yet so how could they know exactly how long they are ffs
According to a source "close to the band"
According to Manyard's housemaid
wonder how many of these songs will be about Maynards mom
This looks so much like the fake lateralus name and tracklist.
I can't believe this actually got approved haha
Hope it is real but they probably went down the Lateralus route of fake song titles to avoid leaking and piracy
Digging: Converge - The Dusk in Us
Tool broke up in 2008. Maynard just needs to keep the hype going so people still listen to his Puscifer records
And buy his wine
The Dividen Principale
Melancholie Part 1 Namassica
Melancholie Part 2: Abruption
Outer Guymon - interlude
Black, An Adaptable Ticon
Nuh uh. No. D+
If all this info is true, Maynard will get angry that it all leaked and they'll have to write a completely new album, which will take another 10 years to make.
"Anyway Stoner Witch is great"
like seriously guys read the article
Digging: Mamaleek - Via Dolorosa
What if this album turned out to be 10,000 days long...
lol @ "its over 25 hours long" in the url
Jfc Tool... Making up for lost time, eh?
sputnik news sourcing ultimate guitar, think we got a pulitzer contender here.
Double album - nice
All long songs - iffy
Song names - lol
This has to be fake, comes off as Tool fanfiction
If this is true then an hour and a half of it will prob be filler.
the "source close to the band" is literally just a random dude posting on reddit
How much more solid of a lead could you want?
10000 seconds is about 2 and a half hours....
I really don't get why people are taking a sourceless "leak" seriously
These song names are just numerology worshipping new age DMT prog metal bullshit, Tool are definitely fucking around if they are even involved in the first place
Can we just ban Tool news unless the band actually does something?
MACMAN IS ALIVE!!!!!!!!
These song names are like something a Tool spoof from South Park would come up with.
Damn, this will almost definitely not live up to anyone's expectations.
I don't know how to feel about this. I don't trust Maynard anymore you know
Aiwaz on the forums is pumped
Figures he is excited
Somewhere MJK is sapping dark energy from this thread
Dark energy for more Green Jelly
"How much more solid of a lead could you want?"
something more than just "some guy on reddit who claims to know what he's talking about," maybe? Gimme a name. This doesn't qualify as a good journalistic source.
its over 25 hours long
Who gives a fuck
Digging: Ondatropica - Ondatropica
People actually are buying this? One track is called "Pascal's Wager" come on.
lol but thats by far the best name on here, and probably the only one Tool would use
April Fool's was months ago.
So your telling me Regresolution is off the table? @space
Regresolution. Holy shit.
It's like Stargasm's handicapped cousin.
And to think their that their last 3 albums were too long lol
Digging: Baths - Romaplasm
The skepticism is beyond real. Reminds me of the fake track listing for Lateralus back in who knows when.
Wonder how much of that's actually true (probably not a lot)
Digging: Cavalera Conspiracy - Psychosis
^probably none of it
"Regresolution" I'm cracking up at some of these
In other words, it's probably more bullshit :D
I kinda want them to just break up at this point.
Digging: letlive. - The Blackest Beautiful
Remember when Moonsorrow claimed their next album would be called Gay Pig?
The source is a guy from Reddit how gullible are some of you
i'll gurgle some jew turd if they actually release a track called "the awakening"
Biggest criticism of their previous work? It was a bit tl;dl
So...they release a double album. Tool of all bands should release 35 minute long albums, they'd probably be great in that format.
Digging: Cathal Coughlan - The Sky's Awful Blue
the source of this all is literally a reddit post saying

Successful double albums...'Physical Graffiti', 'Mellon Collie', 'Tusk', 'The White Album' - what did they have in common? Diversity and the spirit of adventure
All these songs are the same 13 minute length, god help us all...

Never had any desire to listen to this band.
Digging: Gamma Ray - Land of the Free
I'd probably be more excited by this if it were back in 2010 or such. Will still get it as I am to this day a casual Tool fan. Still think their devout fanbase is cancer though.
Hardcore, die hard Tool fans are just the worst
"Hardcore, die hard Tool fans are just the worst"
Hardcore, die hard Tool haters are 10x worse
"Successful double albums...'Physical Graffiti', 'Mellon Collie', 'Tusk', 'The White Album' - what did they have in common? Diversity and the spirit of adventure

So not only are you already judging an album before a single song comes out, but the album isn't even real. Jesus.

When I read "Tool reportedly releasing double album" I thought "Ah ok, let's see if it's any near believable" and here I'm just disappointed in Sputnik. This is not funny and should not have made it to the news section.

Chevelle is so much better now.
This is literally being reported everywhere, but seems like total BS.
The most important part is that it says mixing is being completed. How in the world are there track lengths if things are probably still being reworked?
And who would "leak" the track lengths too? Not very Tool-like song titles either. And I highly doubt Tool would ditch their stupid little interludes. This mixed with what their douche website owner reporting that they still need to finish interludes. People are gullible AF, but I'll be humbled if it turns out true. .0935% chance though.
Guys it's legit. Maynard came to me last night in my sleep and he told me so.
/r/music strikes again.
Personally I want to defend my sources, but I hear Maynard and Les Claypool are in talks to have a collaborative album "Ween Cake Hippie Shit" out by at least 2022.
Lmao they just went full Dream Theater.
Half of those tracks will be ambient hippie drums
so this gets approved but my very relevant article about El-P trashing Pokemon Go doesn't :^(
Damn these websites knowing this article will generate clicks even though it's BS! And man, when you click something like this you expect a bit more than a reddit source lol.
"Half of those tracks will be ambient hippie drums" Yes.
Tools from Topographic Oceans
how is this news when buckethead hasn't released a new album in over 3 months
wow, this might have been exciting if i was 17
Sputnik posting rumors as "news". C'mon.
Funnier is the people commenting on the song titles like this is even real. Before 10,000 Days was released Tool released a fake track listing with dumb song titles, too.
Lol this thread is hilarious

I know for a fact that this is real. I can't say how, but just trust me.
Same. Just trust Chug guys
Maynard communicated with me telepathically during one of my pineal gland massage sessions and told me it's real.
Spirals n shit with intwined consciousness of the messages. Tool lyrics m8
Spirals belong in Gurren Lagann not irl try harder noob.
but guys what is this was real
what if this actually the album
At this point though, who really cares? Release an album or don't; it's not like I'm gonna sit on the edge of my seat waiting six years for these jerkoffs to actually get in the studio.
>every song is 12 minutes
This thread is the funniest shit man
I'll believe it when I see it, which we likely won't.
Holy shit this thread is fucking amazing.
Yeah, this is one of those things that I'll believe once I'm holding the CD in my hand.
Jesus Dream Theater would think this album is self-indulgent. If any of this is true (which is doubtful, considering the entire article is vague as all hell), it'll be an impenetrable mess.
lol guarantee this is just another made up leak from some fat neckbeard who got momentarily bored of his my little pony porn-athon in his mums basement.
Those song titles seem to get gayer by the minute.
Hate this band
Hate this band
This article was made to rile up a few Tool fans, can't believe it actually got approved.
There's a 99.9% chance this is a load of shit.
My pleasure, it was that or ultimateguitar
we're never getting this album and I've accepted that now
mind you, it's mildly interesting that the tracklist from the reddit post was removed
Every time a new piece of 'information' about the album gets around, it's basically a punchline
you're a punchline.
no one talks back to tuna u hear me?!?
what you gonna do about it, punk?
"thanks for reposting terrible metalsucks content"
Metalsucks would make an even more cringeworthy article out of this crock.

Digging: Tom Waits - Rain Dogs
it's right there man
I'm willing to listen anything honest they put out. Hope this is real and decent. Other than that, Ι'm not going to criticize an album I don't really know exists and a band I'm going to worship any other day.
Fuck, I looked past that and now I look like a complete idiot.
*puts gun in his mouth*
We've met before, haven't we?
Don't think it's real, seems much to clicheed.
"We've met before, haven't we?"
At your house, don't you remember?
Are you sure?
Metalsucks cited an anonymous reddit user. Jesus Christ.
I hadn't heard the double album rumor until now, but Buzz Osborne did mention he was told the shortest song they're working on is around 12 minutes long. That doesn't mean shit though, as it's entirely possible they've only worked on a few songs.
Of course. As a matter of fact, I'm there right now.
What do you mean? You're where?
1) "The Awakening"
You don't call a song that after 20+ years surely
2) Principles of March (12:01)
Absolutely no way this is the actual tracklist
At your house.
That's fucking crazy.

Where's all the unnecessary interludes though?
The album is nothing but interludes
Maynard is a pussy. Especially for treating his fans like this
he doesn't owe them anything, it's their fault for acting in such a desperate and obsessed way
actually it's confirmed that this is the track list for Kanye's next record.
It's gonna be kinda funny when this album ends up sucking and most of Tool's diehard fanbase commits suicide
how the fuck could anyone sit through all of this in one sitting
also doubt this is real

Lost Highway quotes out of nowhere
"Although I really don’t think this is a troll job from my source there is one thing that makes me suspicious. ‘Decem,’ if my research is right, means ‘ten.’"
oh jeez what a source
"Maynard is a pussy. Especially for treating his fans like this "
I think u forgot that:
1. maynard has all the reason in the world to treat his fans like this
2. as a musician, as long as he's putting out music, he has no obligation to put out any sort of album from any certain project
3. he makes wine how could he be a pussy

I'll believe it when I hear it
hopefully fucking not. I'm very skeptical. If its true, it will blow. But its likely bull.
Brand New is also reportedly releasing a triple album and every song is reportedly named after a pokemon
Says a source close to the band
Maybe the close source was Maynard's cat
Either way I'm not expecting to be blown away by this, Maynard passion clearly lies in winemaking not music making these days
Maynard doesn't write any of the music, so the worst we'd get from him is sub par vocals and lyrics I suppose.
Maynard's too busy doing the vocals for Chevelle anyway
I sure hope this isn't a double album. I don't think Tool is capable of making one without 60% of it being useless bullshit.
I agree with most here though, no filler interludes in the tracklist feels suspect and very unlike Tool. I don't believe it for a second.
"Maynard doesn't write any of the music, so the worst we'd get from him is sub par vocals and lyrics I suppose."
Does Maynard even know what a guitar is
i never got the appeal with tool
ill give this a proper go without expectation if it actually comes out
After 10 years there better be a double fucking album, although all the initial leaks for 10,000 Days were completely inaccurate and BS so I won't believe any of this until I see it.
Maynard puts more effort into his stupid fucking costumes then his vocals live anyway, at least thst was the case when I saw him. He had some fkn laser pointer that he was shining at people instead of singing during parabola and that pissed me off, I almost wanted to run and confront him on stage but we all know what happened to the last guy who tried that
and there you have it
Someday we'll have new music...........
maynard has such a way with words
Honestly you're kind of a cuck if you're still hoping and pining for more rumors about Tool. Stop hitting yourself.
I'll believe this when I see it.
According to the song titles I guess it might be a collaboration with The Mars Volta.....LOL!
I haven't grabbed a Tool record in some time but if this is true and accurate then I'm in. Sounds interesting for sure.
it's like the fake lateralus leak that happened
it could at least be a sign of progress
this is definitely happening
oh yeah, most certainly
One day Tool will release a new album. It'll have eleven tracks which will last from three to four minutes.
this is "my dad works for nintendo" tier
I bet sucks and everything is in 4/4 and sounds like maynards current band.
"I bet sucks and everything is in 4/4"
yea 4/4 is objectively the worst time signature like its not even hard to play at or creative at all why listen to it when you can have time signatures that cant be mathematically rationalized in decimal form
Tru. If you aren't playing in 5.5/8 with 7/8 polys shut the fuck up
i dont even know what that means so it must be amazing
Tool are too deep for u then. Twisting sand of time and shit yah

So yeah I think we can all assume that this was a false leak.
I'll remain under the assumption that theyre done until I have an album in my hands
still might be the leaked tracklisting for ne obliviouscaris tho
I come back to this occasionally just to reread those song names and get a good laugh.
