Tool Guitarist Says New Album Ready For 2014 Release

Written by Greg Moskovitch on March 7, 2014

Some scoffed when reports surfaced in July of last year that Tool were planning on releasing their highly anticipated follow-up to 2006’s macabre tour-de-force, 10,000 Days, in early 2014, but according to guitarist Adam Jones, the album is complete and will arrive later this year.

As Crave Online Australia reports, Jones told an unnamed fan attending a pre-show VIP meet-and-greet in Portland, Oregon on Thursday afternoon that the notoriously uncompromising outfit’s fifth studio album is “one-hundred percent done” and should arrive later in the year.

Besides talk of different time signatures explored on the new album, details at this time are scant. Frontman Maynard James Keenan sent fans into a tailspin of excitement last September after taking to Instagram to tell his adoring hordes that “Music is happening on ALL fronts. Always.”

Meanwhile, A Perfect Circle guitarist and co-founder Billy Howerdel endorsed the frontman’s characteristically cryptic social media missive by telling Rolling Stone that work on a new A Perfect Circle album could not begin as bandmate Maynard was stuck in “in full Tool mode right now.”

Many fans were left confused about the status of the new, as yet untitled album after multiple reports indicated that while the band had begun proceedings, Maynard was yet to join them. While appearing on the WTF Podcast, Maynard told host Marc Maron that he would soon enter the studio.

Back in October, a band insider took to the official Tool website to tell fans, “I am happy to report that there has indeed been a lot of progress as far as new material goes, especially with the lengthy so-called “epic’ piece that the guys have been arranging for quite some time now.”

Update: Jones says he was only kidding about the albums impending release. Full details here.
