MIRE: For Fans Of A PERFECT CIRCLE and DEFTONES

Just got an email with the link for this video from the band Mire and I’m digging it. It’s a nice mellow-er change from what I’ve been blasting lately. If you like Tool, A Perfect Circle, and/or Deftones then you should check this out. You can download the song for free (along with the entire album) via their bandcamp page here.

However, just because you can get it for free it doesn’t mean you should be a leech…if you’re going to download the entire album at least pay SOMETHING 😉

TOOL Announce Additional Tour Dates, FAILURE To Open

tool-band-10k03

Failure will join Tool for the band’s upcoming Western U.S. tour as of March 9 in Reno, Nev. at the Reno Event Center.

“I was already excited to play with Failure at my 50th birthday party in May, with Puscifer and A Perfect Circle,” said Tool front man Maynard James Keenan. “Now I get to do a few more shows with them. Best birthday ever.”

The Los Angeles-based bands have toured several times together, with their first joint outing in 1992 and their final dates together coming when both Tool and Failure were aboard Lollapalooza 1996.

“I’m seriously excited about these shows with Tool,” said Ken Andrews. “Looking forward to hanging with my old mates, but more importantly, it’s a chance for people to hear two bands that still really care about the long form album format and what you can do with that amount of time artistically, versus three-and-a-half minute singles.”

Failure recently reunited, playing their first show in sixteen years earlier this month at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles. The event, which sold out in mere moments, was described by Spin as “so dynamic, sweeping, warm and expansive that it felt like the perfect combination of an arena show with an intimate setting.”
