Tool’s Maynard James Keenan offers non-promising update on new album

Posted by on March 16, 2016

toolbandIn our almost monthly Tool-insider segment, we bring you more news regarding Tool’s new album that’s been in the works for almost the entire life of your small child at home, and sadly, it is another non-update saying that we have to wait a little longer.

During an interview with The Press Enterprise, Maynard spoke about his actual progress with Puscifer, one of his bands that’s actually releasing new music and touring heavily, and of course, the questions about Tool’s new record came up and he said “We’ve found a common ground, We just can’t seem to move forward.”

He elaborated more on his more active band Puscifer:

“I don’t think we have an audience that can really get this. But the whole goal of this band and this multimedia project demanding to be as flexible as it is, is I would love to roll in (to town), let’s say we do the ‘Money Shot’ tour. And some random date in the middle of the ‘Money Shot’ tour, we do from top to bottom AC/DC’s ‘Powerage’ and ‘Let There Be Rock’ (albums) and that’s it.

The people in the audience, you’ll have a huge percentage of them that are (mad) because they didn’t get to see the ‘Money Shot’ songs. But the other ones will go ‘That’s what Puscifer is. We got to see the weird show, the random one.’ That’s the audience we’re trying to build. We’re trying to build that flexible, forgiving isn’t even the word (fan base). They’re along for the ride.”

This is the usual news we always get regarding the subject and, despite actually getting updates from Maynard himself in the past or reading about the excitement his bandmates have about the new music they’ve written, which we sorta heard one before.
