New Tool album just 12 months away…


Reports filtering from Tool’s official website have confirmed that a new album will be released in May 2012. Unlike last week’s failed Apocalypse, the author’s calculation of the release date “is not based on some preposterous coded Biblical numerology. Instead, it comes from a credible source who, himself, obtained the information via trance-contact (which was written down on a scratch pad) from an interplanetary avatar (and sector commander) named ZEMKLA JR. from the city of Farlon on the planet Selo (in the Bernard’s Star System).”

More as it unfolds…it is close to that time though; recently Tool have been releasing in 5-year stints that year is nigh.


New Jape Double A-Side: Hands of Fire / Lying On a Deathbed

Jape returns with a new double A side single recorded between France and Ireland. Hands of Fire / Lying on a Deathbed are two tracks that will feature on the Dubliner’s forthcoming album Oceans Of Frequency which will be released on his Music / Is / For / Losers label in  September.

Villagers‘ Conor O Brien shows that he is more than just a strummer of steel strings as he takes to the drum stool for the second of the two songs below. Lying on a Deathbed is a step back from the synth-driven opener but we have come to expect both the clever tongue-in-cheek yet painfully open ballad and also the upbeat encouraging floor filler from Richie Egan.

Check it for yourself:
