The running joke lately has been if Tool or Metallica will release a new record first, though Metallica has found a producer and is working on a new record as we speak. The last we heard about new Tool music was back in November when it was confirmed that "Descending" was part of a new song.
So where's the band at now? According to frontman Maynard James Keenan in a recent interview, the band isn't doing so hot in terms of moving forward.
As for Tool, there have been signs of life recently, including a 17-show tour this past January, but Keenan wasn’t promising any new music from his main band.
“We’ve found a common ground,” he said. “We just can’t seem to move forward.”
Right. So I guess we'll see, or whatever at this point really. Unless this is Keenan just playing up his sense of humor again?
