Tool New Album Update: “Most Likely It’ll Be Early 2014″
So, remember back in Feb when Tool drummer Danny Carey said there will definitely be a new Tool album this year? And then frontman Maynard James Keenan said soon after that there were no actual songs written? Well, ol’ Danny’s piped up again with some fairly positive news, suggesting that the album looks set to be wrapped up this year, with an early 2014 release looking pretty likely.
“It’s still the three of us [Carey, guitarist Adam Jones and bassist Justin Chancellor] right now and [we will be joined by singer Maynard James Keenan] soon, you know, just working on all our parts and working on our compositions together,” he tells Loudwire. “Stylistically, we’re trying to push things in different ways, but it always comes out sounding like Tool no matter what we’re trying to do. We’re working everyday on it and it’s going really well, so I’m hoping we’ll get into the studio by the end of the year.”
“I doubt it [will be released in 2013],” he adds. “Right now, since we haven’t started tracking stuff at this point, it’ll be hard. We could have the record finished by the end of the year — that’s a possibility, but the logistics of getting it manufactured and getting the record company in line and all this stuff, I doubt we’ll be able to get it out before Christmas. We’ll see how it goes. Most likely, it’ll be early 2014.”
