Tool Play Brutal New Song Prank for April Fools Day
Another year, another April Tools prank. This time, Tool messed with fans by posting a “new song” on Twitter, “Sounds of Night Crickets.”
Tool’s rich history of April Fools pranks has scared the crap out of fans in the past. In 1997, Tool pranked fans with a fake bus crash.

Yep, it’s literally just 37 minutes of cricket noises. Here’s some of the best fan responses to the prank:
