Tool being coy about new album, announce Australian tour

In The Studio

Tool

Right, so late last year we were told that work on the new Tool album was coming along nicely. Then last month we were told that it had been delayed slightly after a band member fell off a scooter. Now frontman Maynard James Keenan is claiming that no work on the band’s follow-up to 2006 album ’10,000 Days’ has commenced.

Speaking to Chilean radio station Radio Futuro, Keenan said: “No new disc. Not this year. I have not written any songs. So no, there is nothing”.

But if you’re in Australia, you will be able to see the band play five live dates in April and May. And seeing Tool live is definitely a thing you should do, album or not. Though we might as well throw in some speculation that the band will surprise release that album sometime before or after those gigs. Maybe. Well, you never know.
