It’s taken Tool a ridiculous amount of time to get their new record put together, but some fans are taking their impatience to a whole other level.
Carey opened up about the pressure the band had to deliver a new record and the expectations from fans.
“I felt bad for him, and he even told me he was getting death threats from these idiots out there,” Carey said. “They just have no idea what our work ethic is. These things don’t happen, man. There’s no other record that’s going to sound like this Tool record. What you hear is what you get, and what you get is what it takes to get it done. And it’s not an easy process.”
Keenan has been handling the majority of questions for the band regarding the new album since about 2015.
“I felt anxiety because they would blame our singer, and it’s not his fault. We all have our own things going on — lives, families, other projects, other interests — so it’s ready when it’s ready,” Jones said. “But I appreciate the dedication from our fans — the very strong dedication. [Laughs] But the record turned out cool and it’s very different than our last record. I think that’s what we all wanted.”
