WATCH: Tool Have a New Logo
Great Gatsby, eat your heart out.
In a little over a month, Tool’s first album since 2006’s 10,000 Days gets its release. The record remains elusive, with no title or track list as of yet. But over the weekend, the band revealed a small sliver of fresh news: an updated band logo.
In a forty-five-second video clip, the group unveiled a logo to replace their formerly curvy font; this slender, gold, Art Deco one gives off serious Great Gatsby vibes. See it below.

Back in May, Tool played what were assumed to be two new songs from their upcoming fifth album during the Welcome to Rockville festival in Florida. Other than that, the project is a mystery, though the band made headlines recently for something entirely different.
After Justin Bieber praised Tool on Instagram, Tool’s lead singer Maynard James Keenan responded to the enthusiasm with a simple “#bummer,” which led to model/Bieber’s wife Hailey Baldwin defending her husband. “He expressed he was a fan of your music,” she tweeted. “Grew up listening to your music. You must be unhappy with yourself that you want to make people feel small who express their admiration for you. Very childish and hurtful thing to do. I hope u find security within yourself. Sad place to be.”
Justin Bieber and other pop stars of his ilk have notably made a lot of mistakes. It’s not exactly a shock that a rocker like Keenan wouldn’t be a fan.
