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.
Google nearly gave me a heart attack when they sent me a notification saying "New Album by Tool"

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
