Jones captioned the clip as follows:

“A little ‘Jambi’ fun. One of our past Clinic shows for the most hardcore ToolArmy fans. thanx for all your support & dedication over the years.”

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 was made available on Friday, December 16 at 9 a.m. PST/12 p.m. EST.

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.”
