While tours have been put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic, drummer Danny Carey has been wanting to use this time to work on new Tool music. However, that may not be the case for the rest of the band. On Sunday (9th), Carey spoke to Skinny Puppy founding member cEvin Key and discussed how he believes it’s time for the group to get together and jam again, or possibly work on an EP.
“Tool hasn’t been jamming. We’ve been just kind on hiatus. Nothing’s really been happening. But I think it’s time. We kept hoping that we were gonna get back out, so we were just kind of, ‘Hey, enjoy this while it lasts,’ but now it’s looking like it could go to the rest of the year, so we need to get the lead out and start functioning — maybe knock out another EP, at least, or something like that. We’ve never really done that since our first release — done an EP — so I thought it would be kind of nice to do something like that. We don’t have a record deal anymore — we’re free agents — so we can kind of release whatever we wanna release now, which is a good feeling.”
