Tom Waits

Anti- Records posted this mysterious Tom Waits teaser today. All it says is "Tom Waits: Permission To Come Aboard?" and "coming August 7." That's in a week, so at least we won't need to wait very long to see this mystery solved.

Tom recently performed live on both Letterman and Fallon. Watch the Fallon videos below...

Tom shares his thoughts on being in New York and Jimmy asks about his new album, "Bad As Me."

Is that the guy from Mystery Men?

"The schtick is getting old, Tom."


Lol, which one? There are so many by now. And even back then. As I already expected, it's just gonna be more cryptic bullshit teasers to get people here all antsy. I'll start to care once something is actually 100% confirmed.

^ Oh, I guess that settles it. Anonymous troll #2,503 has said so.

Get a life, little man.

^Sniff sniff troll 10:26/10:36 is butthurt cause someone called him out on his stupid and unreal ATP comment. It is gonna be ok turd, there are plenty of threads for you to waste your life troll commenting on today. Maybe try the Ipod comment? Seems to go over well.

He is touring. A friend of mine is a concert promotor, and Waits booked two theaters from his company: one in Athens and the other in Mississippi (forgot the city).

Hopefully he will not do another small city tour and play NYC.

Please tour I need the money so badly.

LULZ troll @ 11:07/11:28
Projecting that deep sense of emptiness from always being the fat kid no one wanted to pick for kickball, all the way to now working the business end of the St. Vitus glory hole. The poor thing, really has no idea what would hurt an anonymous commenter, just what hurts him. And the hurt goes on.

Cheer up troll - none of us are laughing at you. Really we're not.

10:26 could have some validity. Seems right.

"fat kid no one wanted to pick for kickball, all the way to now working the business end of the St. Vitus glory hole."


Sounds like a (Tom Waits fan?) waify, frumpy, fruity trendie is taking out his post-coital (actually post-getting-reamed-up-the-anushole... with jizz!) self- hatred from too many mis-adventures at San Francisco 80's night(s) at the Glasslands Gay Bath House. Soory to hear that you wont make it to see Animal Collective in October there :(

What is wrong with the commenters on this site?

Posted by Anonymous | July 31, 2012 12:06 PM

It's not the comments, it's a child overcome with "LOOKITMEEEE" disease becasue his daddy gave him too much good lovin', if you know what I mean. Wait for the faithful AIDS "joke", it's right around the corner.

Tom will probably be announcing that he has been cast as Captain Kid in the fifth installment of 'Pirates of the Caribbean'.

Posted by Sam | July 31, 2012 12:16 PM

Yeah man, exactly what 12:10(1) said. Don't try to make sense of trolls like 10:26/10:36/11:48. You can't They are pathetic worms with no life at all. They think they are funny and unfortunately don't have the capacity to even realize how fucking stupid they are.

Just sad sad worthless losers.

Good for you 12:26. Now that you have come clean publicly, maybe now you can chill the fuck out on here? Asking too much?

Posted by Anonymous | July 31, 2012 2:23 PM

Waits should collaborate with the iPods. They know how to shuffle things up!

Posted by Anonymous | July 31, 2012 2:31 PM

I thought Radiohead was headlining ATP on Friday to make up for never filling in for Mogwai last year.

Posted by Anonymous | July 31, 2012 3:35 PM

Just received an email from the Tom Waits mailing list, hours after the online announcement. No details in the email.
