The Tool saga continues, and we hope, this time a new album will happen in 2018. Just last week drummer Danny Carey confirmed it will be released next year, meanwhile, Maynard James Keenan didn’t have much to say about it. The latest update from the studio comes from Rage Against The Machine/Prophets of Rage’s Tom Morello, who was invited to listen to new tracks. He shared this news on his Instagram stating:
“Had the honor of being the first outsider to hear new #TOOL music today!! Still just instrumentals but sounded epic, majestic, symphonic, brutal, beautiful, tribal, mysterious, deep, sexy and VERY Tool. Really great. So excited to hear the record when it’s finished.”
Keep in mind, the keyword from his statement is “still just instrumentals.” However, this past February, we were under the impression, Maynard was working on vocals. Unfortunately, every Tool update has to be taken with a grain of salt, yet we can remain hopeful. Fingers crossed that this is the real deal.
