A teaser clip features a small sample of the 10,000 Days tune, “Intension,” and in the caption, TOOL wrote “coming soon.” Also followed b hashtags — including #10000days and #alexgrey, which has something to do with the cover art artist.


We won’t know until the band announces more info, and in typical TOOL fashion, they didn’t provide a hint or timeline other than the word “soon.” We’ll keep our ears and eyes open.

So why are Tool fans on social media all up in arms this week over the news that Tool is up to something coming soon related to their 4th studio album, ‘10,000 Days’?

Is it a concern that whatever it is might require taking out a second mortgage to afford it? Or do they have to wait for Guns and Roses to release their new album first?

Tool Fans are Really Upset About This New '10,000 Days' Teaser Campaign
