Tool Touring in 2014
Back in November 2013, Tool drummer Danny Carey teased that the band should have a new album out early in the new year (they haven’t released a record since 10,000 Days in 2006). Well…here we are…still waiting for an update on that. Tool did just announce a small North American tour that kicks off on the west coast in March…currently there are no Canadian dates. Maybe they’ll hit our area on the second leg? Here are the dates so far:
03/04 – Spokane, WA @ Spokane Arena
03/06 – Portland, OR @ Moda Center
03/07 – Eugene, OR @ Matthew Knight Arena
03/09 – Reno, NV @ Reno Event Center
03/11 – San Francisco, CA @ Bill Graham Civic Auditorium
03/18 – Mexico City, MX @ Palacio De Los Deportes
03/21 – Veracruz, MX @ Festival Cumbre Tajin 2014
Les Claypool’s Duo de Twang
Les Claypool will release his first album under Duo de Twang February 4th called Four Foot Shack. It features covers from bands like The Bee Gees, Alice in Chains and even some Primus. It’s all very simple sounding with a guitar & a bass, sometimes you’ll hear a banjo or a tambourine too.
This week, we heard that Dave Grohl, Queens of the Stone Age, Nine Inch Nails & Lindsey Buckingham will wrap up the Grammy Awards. And this just in…Black Sabbath, nominated for three awards with their album 13, will also be presenters.
