TOOL Offer Four Minutes Of New Song "Descending"

By far the cleanest version we've heard of the song yet.

By far the cleanest version we've heard of the song yet.

Tool played a new song called "Descending" live in 2015, which guitarist Adam Jones later on confirmed would likely be a part of the new album. In 2017, Jones said "Descending" was only one portion of a new song and not the whole thing, even though it was pretty long.

Up to now, we've only heard iffy cell phone quality audio of the new song. Now in a trailer for Tool's upcoming $500-per-ticket music clinics, we're treated to about three and a half minutes of "Descending." You can hear a crowd right at the beginning of the song, but the recording itself sounds like it comes right from the front-of-house board.

As for where this clip actually came from, one Reddit user thinks this "may have been a soundboard recording of the soundcheck/VIP event they did previously." I'd hesitate to say it's a demo too because again – there's clearly a crowd cheering right at the start of the clip.

Tool is currently in the studio knocking out their long-awaited new album with producer Joe Barresi.
