The last time Tool performed their cover of Led Zeppelin’s “No Quarter” was in 1998.
But when their only tour date for 2015 happened to fall on Halloween, at Tempe, Arizona’s Monster Mash, they figured it would be a good time to dust off the 1973 Houses of the Holy track and—better still—dress up like Led Zeppelin, as you can see in the video below. Tool guitarist Adam Jones even pulled out his Gibson double-neck for the occasion.
Singer Maynard James Keenan posted a photo of himself as Robert Plant to the Instagram of his side project, Puscifer.
The Tool concert celebrated more than Halloween—it was the first show since March 2014 to feature the full band lineup. It was also probably the only opportunity fans will have to catch Tool onstage for a while—they have no additional performances dates lined up for the time being. At last report, Tool were at work on their followup to 2006’s 10,000 Days. The album was delayed by an eight-year lawsuit that was settled this past spring.
Jones said last March it was possible the group would have a new album out by the end of the year, but emphasized that the band won’t set arbitrary deadlines for its work. Speaking of the group’s new material, he said, “Some of it’s really heavy, some of it’s complex and some is more atmospheric, but it’s definitely Tool. I think having this lawsuit out of the way should really speed of the progress of getting the album done.”
