Fans have been eagerly awaiting a new Tool album since their 2006 studio album, 10,000 Days. Fortunately, it look like we won’t have too much longer to wait after Maynard James Keenan took to Twitter to confirm the album is finally finished.
Back in January, fans were sent into a panic when they received a Google alert saying that Tool had dropped a new album, only to realize that it wasn’t a new album from the band they were hoping for.
Of course, they soon realized nothing was as it seems and Google mistakenly mixed up Tool with a SoundCloud rapper named TOOL$.
Between that unfortunate mix-up and Keenan’s promise of new music in 2019, fans have been on high alert for any news regarding the band’s new album.
Hold tight Tool fans, that album may be on the way sooner than we think.
The Tool frontman took to Twitter to confirm the album is indeed done, and is now in the final mixing and mastering stage.
Update- Final vocals tracked MONTHS ago. Then U.S.-UK-Euro run w #APC. If Tool all inst are tracked, long process of Mixing now. Meanwhile write/film/track w @puscifer for #puscifer2020 & troll the band FBs with wine posts. #funnyshit #whileyouwerewhiningiwasworking
