hmm. Might be intresting show. I cant wait for the next Tool album because 10,000 days or whatever its called wasnt one of my favorite albums that dropped this year, but really good idea to have Isis go out with them. Lot of talent in both bands. Maybe have a few members from each band play together and come up with something interesting. Bleed Black Label!

i like this pairing a lot b/c although Isis is not really "underground" anymore, they are definitely gonna get a ton of exposure that they normally would never recieve. Nice move on Tool's part to bring them out and give people some different music to listen to rather than having your standard hard rock/metal band open for them......although i did read somewhere that Adam Jones has been trying to get this tour together for years, nonetheless cool...

I've read press where both bands dwell on eachother, so this mutual asskissing had to amount to a tour someday. You can hear so much of Jones' guitar sound in Oceanic and PanOpticon it's absurd.

C'mon people. After 4 years, don't you think Tool could have put out some music that isn't just retreaded Lateralus sh*t. The novelty of Tool is over....they're just another rock band who's time passed sometime after Aenema. Don't get me wrong, Tool still writes great music and it sound super....but shouldn't we expect more?
