Tool complete new album

Thursday, March 07, 2019 1:09 PM PT


It looks as though Tool have finally finished their next studio album, the band's first since 2006.

This afternoon Tool posted a photo via social media showing the band (sans vocalist Maynard James Keenan) with mastering engineer Bob Ludwig (Tool, Radiohead) standing before a mastering console. As such, it's safe to say that recording and mixing have been finished and the mastering process is underway, if not complete.

Last month, Maynard James Keenan said the new album would be out before August.

Maynard has really let himself go. That's him in the center, right?

13 year wait for 8 songs where the same guitar riff is played for the duration. Sweet.

Mouth-breathing Game Stop employees who wear Naruto t-shirts and collect Funko POP! figures are stoked.

So sick of hearing about this. Just GO AHEAD AND RELEASE IT so the tryhards can call it groundbreaking and the rest of the normal people can call you a buncha f@gs and we can all be done with it.

Considering recording was finished months ago and mixing was halfway done a month ago, I'd say they've pretty wrapped up the new album, dumb fck.

But you aren't sure, you are only guessing as nothing official from the band was stated. You posted news that states it is fact the album is complete. You suck.
