RAT Rock News

Tool has long taken part in April Fools’ Day, but this latest prank is extra cruel…or brilliant. Honestly, it’s a little bit of both.

The band, who are currently working on the long-awaiting follow-up album to 2006’s 10,000 Days,  took to Twitter to share a YouTube clip titled “Sounds of Night Crickets” knowing full well that some fans would think it could be a new song. WRONG!

Tool fans, however, took the tweet in stride and responded in kind with a number of one-liners that could only come from a fanbase that has been waiting so long for a new album. Here are some of the best reactions.
