While “Money Shot” told a chaotic, nonlinear tale about a deal that goes south amidst a hail of slingshot fire, the narrative for “The Remedy” is much simpler. The video intersperses footage of Puscifer performing the cut in a wrestling ring with clips of an old man flipping through a scrapbook chronicling his glory days as a Luchador.
The trip down memory lane inspires the man to re-don his costume and mask, while shots of a metal briefcase — like the one fought over in “Money Shot” — suggest this Luchador had a hand in those disastrous events. While the contents of the case are never shown, when the man opens it at the end, his outfit changes from a drab undershirt and slacks to that of the Luchador he once was.
At the top of 2016, however, Keenan and Tool will embark on an eight-date tour, starting January 9th at the Viejas Arena in San Diego. News of the trek comes after Tool played their lone 2015 gig — a Halloween show in Arizona — and as fans continue to wait for the follow-up to 2006’s 10,000 Days.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Keenan assured fans that Tool is working on a new album, saying, “Do I seem like a lazy person to you? They’re working hard in their own way; I’m working hard in my own way, and I’ve got nothin’ for ya.”
