Tom Waits

After three teasers, we get: A STATEMENT FROM TOM WAITS:

"As most of you guessed, it's a tour...a tour de force!

"Matt Mahurin has created an apocalyptic war dream to accompany the song HELL BROKE LUCE. Kathleen and I envisioned it as an enlightened drill sergeant yelling the hard truths of war to a brand new batch of recruits. The video grew from the gnawing image of a soldier pulling his home, through a battlefield, at the end of a rope.

"I think you will agree, it's uplifting and fun."

"Hell Broke Luce," featuring Marc Ribot and Keith Richards on guitar, with Flea on bass and Casey Waits on drums, is from Waits' most recent release, BAD AS ME.

Watch the new video below...

You gotta love Tom. I don't really understand wtf this video is about and the lyrics crack me up but I would kill to see him live. Can he just tour already?

If you're on Tom Waits mailing list why would THIS offend you and make you unsubscribe. Dude is crazy, it could have been just a photo of him holding ice cream and it wouldn't have surprised me.

The Waits is over...

Back to sleep

Good. This is why I didn't even bother to give a shit, until something was 100% confirmed (as in a tour date). I knew this would be leg pulling from the very start.

Where are all the trolls? It was a tour right? Your buddy is a promoter who confirmed a few dates. He is playing Fri ATP.

Cmon loser trolls, where did you go?

Tome Waits...disappointing his loyal fans for how many years now?

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2012 10:39 AM

Hey Tom, why tease us over a damn video knowing that everyone on your mailing list was hoping for a tour? Cool video though, creep!

You idiots get what you deserve. Don't support this waste of space.

Typical Tom.

And that is why he is so unique.

But a tour would be nice but doubt the next one will include Ann Arbor as he was last in Ohio. What the heck, driving to see him is not out of the question.

So...never trust a word from Tom Waits.

Anyone who doesn't at the very least respect Tom Waits can go fuck themselves.

Tom Scharpling is in fact the biggest DOUCHE ever born in the history of mankind. Lyme ticks are more heart warming than Tom Scharpling. A 5 ft deep pit of loose shit in Soweto is more valuable than Tom Scharpling's opinions.

lol some twat invokes tom scharpling as the measure of anything save for douchbaggery? lol lol lol

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2012 1:17 PM

Serious question
Does anyone really value anything that Tom Scharpling thinks, feels or believes? 12:47 do you really value his opinions on anything? Really?

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2012 1:19 PM

Yeah, that's what I thought. No one really gives a shit about Scharpling. Hey, wait ... shit, Scharpling .... Shitling!

Posted by Anonymous | August 7, 2012 2:05 PM

You fuckin people obviously are not fans, and u should unsubscribe from his email list and go back to listening to I college radio bullshit.
