After years of being teased about the new Tool album to arrive, the band has finally shared concrete evidence that they are working on it. Aside from knowing that it exists, we’ve also heard that each song will be over ten minutes long. At the band’s recent performance at the Northern Invasion festival in Somerset, WI this past Sunday (13th), Maynard James Keenan pleaded with his bandmates, begging them to finish their parts on the follow-up to 2006’s 10,000 Days.
Keenan explained why he was dressed in riot gear as he stated:
“A lot of people recently have been asking me, Maynard James Keenan, what’s with the fucking riot gear? Well, I’ll tell you. I’m afraid of bananas, and other forms of fruit, because eventually you wonderful people are going to run out of fucking patience. So I beg you – Danny, Adam, and Justin, please finish your parts so I can finish mine and take this fucking riot gear off.”
