Tool’s merch table now includes blankets made from old band shirts

If they're trying to distract us from the nine-year gap between albums, it's working.

September 1, 2015

Two years after Eric Clapton released an Old Sock, Tool have one-upped him. Though fans will have to “wait for it” (it being a new album) Maynard Keenan and co. have laid out their latest merch table items: Three different multi-purpose blankets, each hand-sewn from soft fleece and recycled Tool t-shirts.

A press release notes that these rock-ready items are “comfortable enough for home use, durable enough for festivals.” It also offers the following words of warning: “Don’t look for unreal blue butterfly eyes on a lark, or attempt to grasp the physics of an anti-quark.” We’re unclear if that makes more or less sense to listeners who have delved deep into Ænima. The blankets cost $199 a pop, and can be ordered by faithful foot soldiers of the Tool army right here.
