We’ve already heard Tool’s new album may be nearing completion, and now, according to Kirk Hammett, the group are currently working on the artwork. The Metallica guitarist recently spoke to The New Zealand Radio station, The Rock. Somehow, the conversation drifted away from bot and ticket scalpers and closer to an update on the follow-up to Tool’s 2006’s 10,000 Days.
Hammett was asked if he had any advice for Tool to finally complete their album.
“Well, I talk to Adam Jones quite a bit, and the last thing I knew, he was dealing with artwork. So that is a good sign. If they’re dealing with artwork, it must be close.”
Speaking of album updates, bassist Robert Trujillo recently stated that the follow-up to Metallica’s 2016 record Hardwired…To Self-Destruct will arrive “a lot sooner than the previous two.”
