It looks like Tool are officially recording their new album!
Tool fans have been waiting for a new album since 10,000 Days was released back in 2006. There have been countless false alarms about new material coming since then, but it looks like 2018 is going to be the year for a new Tool record. Guitarist Adam Jones posted a video clip on Instagram with the caption: “Day 1” with an emoji of a CD indicating that the band is recording the new album.
Danny Carey said that Tool would “definitely” release a new record this year. In January, Jones said the music was finished and last month, Maynard James Keenan said he had written the lyrics for “all but one” of the songs, as he was waiting for the final version of that last track. Keenan said the album won’t be out this summer, but didn’t provide any more details on when to expect it.
