Tool haven’t released a new album in almost 10 years, but they *are* selling $200 blankets

on September 01, 2015, 11:30am

A new Tool album may not be in the cards for 2015, but the band’s come up with the next best thing to cure their fans’ anxious woes: quilted blankets made from old Tool t-shirts.

Rather than revel in the sounds of new music, Tool’s loyal devotees can instead wrap themselves in one of three new multi-purpose blankets, each hand-sewn and made of soft fleece. They’ve waited nine years, what’s a couple more, ya know?

A press release notes that the blankets, which come with a hefty $199 price tag, are only available in limited quantities and potential buyers oughtn’t dilly-dally. “Don’t go to the nearest courtesy phone, or wait for a healing thighbone…” it reads. “Don’t look for unreal blue butterfly eyes on a lark, or attempt to grasp the physics of an anti-quark.” (Also, apparently don’t wait for a new Tool record.)

Find the specs below, followed by pictures of the cozy collectibles. Order your own here.

– Individually cut-n-sewn in the USA
– Dimensions 75″ X 75″

Fans can double down on the Tool experience by purchasing a blanket and seeing the band live for their first performance of the year on Halloween. That’s almost just as good as a new Tool album, right? Right?
