Many many moons ago, when being asked for an update on the long-fabled new Tool album, Maynard says “I have not written any songs. So no, there is nothing.” Maynard had previously said he doesn't begin his job until the rest of the band is done with the music. Then, he comes in and begins writing.
With that said, I'd like to point you to this new update Tool posted on their official website:
“In speaking with Danny [Carey, drummer] last night, he told me that the band has temporarily MOVED some of their gear into a larger space (across town) where MAYNARD is working on VOCALS for some of the new Tool material. I’m sure that he has already been doing this to some extent, but now he has more room to breathe and a better vocal booth.”
THEY MOVED TO A LARGER SPACE?!
MAYNARD IS FINALLY BACK IN THE STUDIO??
MAYNARD IS WORKING ON VOCALS?!?
We named Tool's forthcoming record one of the most anticipated releases of the year, could we actually get it in 2017? Tool have lined up some festival dates throughout the year – could they possibly debut a new song at these dates?
So many questions! Soon there will be answers.
