I know, I know it doesn’t always has to be something mystique/in the shadows/from the Universe when it comes to mighty Tool. As long as the news of the new album come by the water drop through the media and band members themselves, these are the rare moments of joy while we wait. Seems that the strings are getting tighter and tighter in Adam Jones‘ songbook. He proposed to his girlfriend, two nights ago in a quite crowded place.

Legendary albums by these fine post hardcore gang of musicians will be reissued in the next months. ‘Relationship Of Command” + ‘Acrobatic Tenement’ are due to be out in March and April. Jim Ward, the guitarist of the band, who were shortly reformed in 2012. said : “It was interesting to revisit the recordings that bookended the first chapters of our band. The earnest and pure excitement of the beginning and the level of craftsmanship we achieved by ‘Relationship Of Command’ leaves me nothing but proud. I am happy these records have found their way to continue to feel new as people discover music they love and embrace our work.” ‘Acrobatic Tenement’ will be available from March 25. ‘Relationship of Command’ will be available from April 22.
Tyler,The Creator of Odd Future rap notoriety is to be featured on Miley Cyrus’ new album. By her own words it’s suppose to be one of the highlights on the new record. “I wrote this song with Mary J Blige, and Tyler the Creator heard it and said, “I am obsessed with this song, and I will guest on it if you promise me that you will keep it on the album.” And he killed it!”
Long time partner in [music] crime with the infamous Queens Of The Stone Age, mr. Mark Lanegan will be contributing on the bands’ new album. This news was published on QOTSA Facebook saying ”Lanegan came by. He didn’t say much, but he sang good.” Lanegan and Homme go waaay back, since the aftermath of Kyuss in the mid 90′-es when he joined for a while as a guest guitarist for Screaming Trees. Seems like the ‘‘Songs For The Deaf” era line up is coming back again. Dave Grohl recorded drum parts as well as Nick Oliveri who hammered down some bass work. Still no news on when the album is finally coming out. The band has been confirmed to play some european festivals this summer.
The survival of the record industry in the 21st century brought some serious issues to be dealt with. Questioning the very core of how to sell, distribute, present and make the music available to the fast and growing culture of consumers, regardless the age. It became the struggle for survival. Great labels went down because they couldn’t maintain the level needed to stay competent, solvent. Not even mentioning the position of bands/artists in this turmoil. Sales are down, people less and less go to the shows, supporting directly the artists, buying their merchandise or God forbid, their physical releases.
New age demands new rules which leads to a whole different game/role-playing. The power of various online music and stream services is growing by the day. Social networking in combination with smart phone application development made possible to a huge amount of worldwide youth to be able of having their favourite music at any given time. Vinyl format made it’s come back and is definitely here to stay. CD’s still have some value, but in the ocean of pop stars, one hit wonders and teen heroes it’s easier to give a dollar for a single by downloading it than actually buy the entire album. Who listens to albums anyway?! Well, I do. It takes guts, time, nerves and strong dedication to survive as a musician. It became a sort of luxury to even play an instrument. That’s why is necessary to support your favourite artist in any way possible. I stumbled upon an article which gives us , at least to some extent, an inside look of how to operate an independent record label. You can go here and read it. After all the best music is to be found in places like this. Support your scene!!!
