It’s bad enough that Mondays exist and now, Google has made this day even worse. At least for die-hard Tool fans. Earlier this morning (16th), Google informed everyone that the band’s new album was released today via Google Alert stating, “IllutionWorld by Tool was released today.”
It’s been twelve years since the group released 2006’s 10,000 Days and we heard at least 10,000 updates since making it feel like an eternity for the new album to arrive. Therefore, many fans were furious about this false report. It turns out that IllutionWorld does exist as it’s an album by a Soundcloud rapper called TOOL$ and has absolutely nothing to do with the news we were hoping for.
Check out the negative reactions below via Twitter:

Nothing quite like getting a Google notification that says “New album from Tool” only for it to be a hip-hop album by a band called Tool$. Screw you Google. Don’t play with my heart like this.

The new TOOL album is here! Google sent out a text alert saying the album drops today…it’s called IllutionWorld!! Some of the songs are: Chillin’ and Emo, Tosis and Lost Myself. We get ready to play some and it’s Hip Hop! We look closer and it’s from the rapper: TOOL$.

Wowwwww fuck @Google. Woke up this morning and my phone had a notification for a new TOOL album. So naturally I was pumped. Turns out this new Album is from a band named “TOOL$” and I start off my week by getting swindled.
