in the same year that favorites radiohead and portishead are about to project wonderful releases of their own; its official, the new tool album 10,000 days arrives on may 2nd in exactly 16 days. [dont get too confused.]

all good patient tool fans around the world have been waiting 5 years for the new tool.

the first single, vicarious, was originally set to hit radio this monday.. except a lil easter celebration was made in vein and the music arrived early this weekend. [thanks charlie!]

still inside the same quality of epic alternating time signatures, odd chord/note progressions, explosive pulsating drumming, understated BEAUTIFUL chaotic bass lines

….

true listeners know, tool takes time.

the band’s personal time to make the art and our own time to lay back, vision, anticipate and surrender.

im ready to let go again.

are you?

the universe is hostile, so impersonal
devour to survive — so it is, so its always been
we all feed on tragedy, its like blood to a vampire
vicariously, i live while the whole world dies
much better you than i

~*~
listen to: vicarious

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter

    this is an incredible song. as a huge fan, i have to say that the album has been a major disappointment. there aren’t any other songs like this one.
