Hosted by Alex & Allyson Grey
Not many cover or tribute bands out there ever attempt to engage in the raw talent, mysticism, and magic that is TOOL, but if you talk to four brave souls from New York City: Keith Williams on Guitar, Angelo Rivera on Vocals, Sean Murray on Bass & Donald Pusateri on Drums, their love and passion for this music led them to form SCHISM. New York City’s premier TOOL tribute band, the world’s first and longest touring tribute to TOOL.
“We started this back in 2001, after seeing a TOOL show at Madison Square Garden. We simply loved the music and wanted to share it live with other TOOL minded fans” says SCHISM guitarist Keith Williams. “We’ve been a national touring act for over 16 years now. This isn’t something you tap your foot to, this is more of an interactive experience for listener. These songs are compositional masterpieces which will be studied for years to come. Between the musicianship, artistry and visual connection, Schism serves you Tool at it’s most intimate way possible”.
If you’ve never had the chance to see TOOL live, here’s your local opportunity.
We invite you of the collective unconscious to share with us the experience of TOOL.
