Tool Announce Massive December 2022 Release


Tool recently made an announcement for its first-ever collectible statue. Inspired by visionary artist and spiritualist Alex Grey’s “Skull Fetus” artwork for the band’s fourth studio album, 2006’s “10,000 Days,” the statue will be made available on Friday, December 16 at 9 a.m. PST/12 p.m. EST.

Tool makes the huge announcement

Tool announced the statue in a social media post on Friday (December 9), calling it a “maquette”, which is described as “a model for a larger piece of sculpture, created in order to visualize how it might look and to work out approaches and materials for how it might be made.”

Grey first worked with Tool on 2011’s “Lateralus” album. In his 2017 interview as part of a Kerrang! Tool cover story, Alex noted how the group “avoid the easy path and favor the hard, evolutionary road” and that “as sonic shamans, they are industrial strength psychedelic ‘Tools Of The Gods’, emitting visual and auditory resonance with the mysterium tremendum.”

Meanwhile, new reports have emerged from WDAF-TV (Fox 4 Kansas City) that noted that Tool drummer Danny Carey is scheduled to appear in Kansas City, Missouri court on December 15. The court appearance comes about one year after the Kansas City International Airport incident that took place on December 12 last year. As the source also added, the records show that the case has continued seven times during the past year.
