Tool Halfway Done Writing New Album


It’s true.

Tool’s webmaster has posted the following update to the band’s site, and it’s a good kind of update. Tool are 50-percent done with their new album.

“Something that might be encouraging to some Tool enthusiasts is that while riding with Danny to Chili John’s yesterday, I heard a lot of new Tool music (sans Maynard),” reads the update.

Lucky bastard.

“This was the most new material that I’ve heard so far, although a few of the riffs and arrangements were familiar,” the update adds.

“So, what did I think? Dare I say that it sounded like… Tool (some of it reminiscent to earlier Tool stuff, with other parts pushing the envelope), and I assume that it will sound even more like Tool once the vocal melodies, etc. have been added.

“To answer your next question, I cannot say how far along in the writing process the band is. If I had to GUESS, I would say more than half way (and keep in mind that in the past, at least, the writing went faster once the first few [more complex] songs were finished).”

So, I assume it’ll be another ten years before we get the new album then?
