Tool have released the 37-minute “Sounds of Night Crickets” on their Twitter page to screw with fans on April Fools Day.
A couple of years ago, Tool trolled fans on April Fools Day by claiming that former Van Halen singer Sammy Hagar was taking over for Maynard James Keenan on vocals.
MAYNARD JAMES KEENAN GIVES SAMMY HAGAR THE WHEEL
In an effort to nudge the things forward in what seems to be an endless music writing process, Maynard James Keenan has enlisted the help of Sammy Hagar to temporarily replace him as the vocalist for the slow moving internationally recognized rock monster truck, Tool.
“There seems to be this invisible speed limit we’ve been holding ourselves to. I believe Sammy can help us get all pistons firing and break some sound barriers.” Keenan went on to say, “Sammy is the only vocalist I’m aware of that was able to take an already established Van Halen an even greater distance. Hopefully this shift in gears will help speed things along.” 03-32-18
Tool are set to release their new album in mid-may to mid-July, and they are soon set to tour North America, followed by a summer European tour to coincide with the new record.
