Pitman is known as a multi-instrumentalist with Guns N Roses, singing and playing keyboards, guitar and drums. This is not his first collab with Tool. He has toured with the band in the past and played synth on the Tool song Third Eye in 1996. He has also contributed lead vocals, guitar and electronics to the band ZAUM with Tool drummer Danny Carey.
It has been almost ten years since the last Tool album 10,000 Days, with other musical projects for band members (including Maynard James Keenan’s Puscifer) and a lawsuit with an insurance company making the wait lengthy for fans.
If Tool have taught us anything, though, its that their music is worth the wait. Godspeed them!
