Tool Officially Done With New Album, Expecting a 2014 Release
It has been eight years since Tool’s last album. While updates from Maynard James Keenan ensured a follow-up to 10,000 Days would be in the works, talk extended close to two years – with nothing to show for it.
However, according to an exclusive report from CraveOnline.com, the band is indeed done and plans to put out the release this year.
Guitarist Adam Jones spoke during the VIP meet and greet before the Portland, Ore., show on their recent trek. Jones explained to fans that the release – still untitled at the moment – is fully complete, and that they plan to have it out at some point in 2014.
Jones didn’t get into details about what fans should expect. The only difference is – and this is supported by previous statements from their drummer – a change in time signatures compared to their previous work.
Recording and tracking started roughly in July of last year, but an August 2013 interview with Keenan revealed he hadn’t even heard the music – let alone started writing new lyrics.
A new album isn’t the only project in the works for the seminal rock band. Apparently, they’re also making a movie – but what it’s about or whether it’s a documentary isn’t known.
If you’re a fan of Tool, what would you like to see them do for their long-awaited comeback?
