Google shocked TOOL fans yesterday (July 16) by informing everyone the band’s new album had been released entitled lllutionWorld . With a Google Alert, countless fans were sent into a frenzy, only to realize it wasn’t the “Tool” they were hoping for.
Turns out IllutionWorld does exist, but it’s by a Soundcloud rapper called TOOL$. You can imagine what a shock it was for the fans. Some of their reactions can be seen below.
What kind of MONSTER would name their music group TOOL and release an album today and then send my phone a notification saying "NEW ALBUM FROM TOOL" close to the time we're expecting an album from the real Tool. I actually thought they just dropped their album 6 months early
