justin's side projects

Lobal Orning

While most bands utilize the drummer to provide the beats that set the pace for their music, Justin Chancellor’s precise, earth-shattering basslines are the force that drives most of Tool’s intricately complex tracks. When he’s not in the studio or on the road with Tool shaking the ground with his bass, Justin owns and operates a store in Topanga, California. Lobal Orning, a record and book store, “means simply…to decorate your mind…the lobes of the ears – the lobes of the brain.” According to Justin on the Lobal Orning site, “books and music are what we love – what we wish to share…maybe open some new doors.” The store focuses on “artists and authors that other shops rarely stock due to mainstream demands.”
