Tool have been working on a new album for what feels like fucking centuries now, so when Adam Jones posts a new riff online, it is cause for celebration amongst fans.
Sadly, the new riff he posted this weekend — while new — is being inserted into the middle of an old Tool song for live shows.
Jones offers the following :
“Before the last tour we wrote a new part in the middle of ‘Hooker’ to play live. I often record new riffs and ideas on my phone to remember them right after the jam. Enjoy
“(*Blue tape covers Band Aid covering cut finger)”
Not something off the next Tool album, but still pretty cool.
By the way, Tool’s new album — a source of much confusion and speculation — will not be out until 2016, I predict.
