TOOL's Maynard James Keenan Thinks Social Media is Only Dividing People

"Every conversation online starts with an argument."


Tool vocalist Maynard James Keenan isn't exactly a fan of social media or the Internet in general. In a recent conversation with Metal Hammer, Keenan said both are driving an edge between people thanks to the cherry-picking of information.

Maynard said at the time "I feel like social media and the internet has really driven a wedge in between people," said Keenan. "Just the whole concept of liking a thing, or not liking a thing, and then having whatever you see for the next several months be exactly what you wanna see and not what you don’t wanna see. It’s like staring into a mirror, very narcissistic, and it’s not very healthy. So that division gets wider and wider, the polarisation; every conversation online starts with an argument."

As for Tool, they said they were working on some new material while the pandemic was going on. The band is also currently without a label, so we'll see what happens.
