Maybe it is the other members of the band that are against streaming their
albums, Maynard James Keenan, lead singer for Tool, who is also Lead
singet on A Perfect Circle and Puscifer, has their albums on spotify

Super disheartening. Off to YouTube I guess

Please, please, please!

really hope that, with their upcoming album (which they will start recording now March 2018), they'll finally embrace streaming services. I mean... everyone already listens to their tracks separately on YouTube anyway... I don't think it would hurt adding their discography to other services.

 

What makes me a bit sad about it all, is that I really care for music statistics like play counts, monthly listeners, etc... and, with such a late addition of their discography to Spotify, that would also infer low statistics. Thanks to Last.fm for storing their 113.2M scrobbles at least.

I had also the same frustation.

I've found two of their musics on Spotify (the first is a cover and the second is a version):

- Schism - Lo Mejor del Rock de los 90

- 46 and 2 - O'keefe Music Fundation

There is also a band i've found to be very (very very very) influenced by Tool on one of their albuns:

Album: Cognitive / Band name: Soen

From what I understand Maynard wants people to listen to tool one whole album at a time not songs at a time? I cannot remember where I heard that but it may have some validity to it not 100% sure but cool to think about

So instead of capitolizing on the opportunity they'd prefer I go online, download it illiegally which literally takes five minutes to do their entire catalogues and just add them to my library? I pay for Spotify because I refuse to pay top dollar for albums and then have to pay rediculously inflated scalper prices in hopes to even see most of these artists live. The whole industry is a disgusting greed pig.

fyi, maynard isnt the frontman for a perfect circle. He sings lead in a lot of the songs, but billy howerdel is the frontman.

Everything that’s already been said is true. However, Tool(apparently) has been talking to services like Apple Music and Spotify and may make their next album available on these services. If that happens, they will also make their entire library available (hopefully that includes Salival!).

APC is very different from Tool. Tool albums are very thematic, and all the members (including Maynard) want all the albums to be viewed as whole pieces instead of people being able to cherrypick singles from certain albums
