Also, we’ve known  the new long-awaited Tool record will be arriving on Aug 30. This will be the first album since the band’s 2006 effort 10,000 Days.

The band finally revealed the album’s release date back in May at their show in Birmingham, Alabama. They revealed it through a video screen flashing a date before the band’s encore set—”August 30th.”

Then, they added some music on streaming platforms. Despite the band being vehemently opposed to doing so prior to this year, they uploaded their 72826 demo tape earlier this month.

After that, they changed the logo. The band have historically updated their logo before releasing each album so it was only a matter of time before they did so for the new record.

You can see it below.

More Tool news

It looks like Justin Bieber‘s wife Hailey is coming to his defense following Tool vocalist Maynard James Kennan‘s “#bummer” tweet. The model took to Twitter to share some stern words for Maynard after Bieber revealed himself to be a Tool fan.

First, Bieber shared the lyrics to “The Pot” over a photo of his feet. Then, he wondered if his fans even knew of the song.

Keenan later responded to reports of Bieber being a Tool fan with one simple reply: “#bummer”

Then, Hailey responded to the Tool singer’s tweet, calling it “childish” and “hurtful.”
