A new report claims that Tool are gearing up to release a double album called "Decem" this fall, unveiling full track listing with a total length of over 2.5 hours.
The source noted on Reddit: "I think Tool has been leading us on in the press. I absolutely cannot reveal my sources for this. Let's just say that the mixing process has happened."
The individual added, along with the list of songs: "I will try to get any additional piece of information I can to try and add further validity. I'm excited too and I hope this is true. Under no circumstance will I reveal any personal information about the source."
As you can see below, the track listing matches Melvins frontman Buzz Osborne's claim that Adam Jones told him no tune on the album goes below 12 minutes in length.
'Decem' Track Listing
1. Abscissa (13:47)
2. The Awakening (12:03)
3. Gematria (Act I) (14:33)
4. Regresolution (13:56) 5. Divinotus (12:45) 6. Astral (Act II) (12:21)
7. Descending (13:53)
8. Decem (12:22)
9. Lesous (Act III) (12:43)
10. Principles of March (12:01) 11. Pascal's Wager (13:46) 12. Zeta (Act IV) (14:27)
In total, the alleged album clocks in at 2 hours, 38 minutes and 37 seconds, which is close to the very limit of how much music two CDs can take (around 2 hours and 40 minutes).
Additionally, the track listing also features "Descending," a song partially performed during the band's recent tour.
The source further noted: "Although I really don't think this is a troll job from my source, there is one thing that makes me suspicious. 'Decem,' if my research is right, means 'ten.' Could that refer to the 10 years between albums? If so, that seems awful meta for Tool."
Stressing that the source of this information is "rock solid," the guy or girl added: "I'm a huge fan of Tool myself and will be disappointed if it's not true. I just wanted to share what could possibly be huge news in the music world."
