Tool drummer Danny Carey has said fans won’t have to wait another 13 years for a new studio album, like they did prior to the arrival of 2019’s Fear Inoculum. Carey recently spoke to Cleveland Scene, explaining: 

“It was frustrating not having new material to play, but that time really flew by quickly. I guess that’s just the nature of life. It’s like when you have kids, and they’re grown up, and you go, ‘What happened?’ It took a long time, but we did a lot of touring and tried to grow in different ways and take a break from each other to keep things fresh. We also wanted to bring in outside influences, so we would have something new to say to each other musically. It all came together really well on this one. I’m sure it won’t take us this long for the next one. We even had some stuff left over from the last one that we’ll develop. We have head starts on three or four new songs.”

Carey also said Tool is readying a live DVD that will be…

“…a good mind blower for all the hardcore fans. Most of it will be from the Lateralus tour from 2002.”


Fear Inoculum arrived in August 2019 following years of anticipation.
