Tool’s new album is coming sooner than you think
Grammy-award winning progressive-rock band
In a short post, the website which keeps track of new updates from the band, said “In speaking with Danny last night, he told me that the band has temporarily MOVED some of their gear into a larger space (across town) where MAYNARD is working on VOCALS for some of the new Tool material. I'm sure that he has already been doing this to some extent, but now he has more room to breathe and a better vocal booth.”
As is the tradition, for all Tool albums, the
Tool will embark upon a tour this year headlining the Governor’s Ball Festival at Randall’s Island, New York and the Boston Calling festival in Boston. Considering the friction Maynard has with the rest of the band members in Tool, this is a big thing. It indicates how much Tool, as a band, is investing to bring back the chemistry that gave rise to tracks like “Lateralus”, “Aenima”, “Schism” and more.
At the end of last month, Consequence of Sound reported that Maynard has reportedly hit a couple of roadblocks. In an interview, Maynard had suggested some sort of setbacks. ““For some things yes, I see a plan,” he said, “and others I just see roadblocks,” he said. But now that news has come in that he is ready to lay down the vocals to the new tracks, the new Tool album might finally see the light of the day sometime really soon.
