Tool Members Gives New Album Update

(TeamRock Radio) After hearing that Tool were caught up in a multi-million dollar legal dispute, TeamRock called up guitarist Adam Jones to find out what was going on, and an update on that new album.

Jones says of progress on the new album and the direction the music is going, "We're always on an experimental path. We never think about what worked on the last record or what's good on the radio right now. It's a selfish process, we just go in there with some riffs. We experiment and the riffs start to take a different path and over time, this riff from last week might go really well with this riff from two years ago. We piece stuff together, almost like a film soundtrack, you know? But I'll tell you this - there's a lot of stuff in 7/4. Breaking up 7 can sound like an even number to the listener even though it's an odd number, that's really exciting. Rosetta Stoned had some elements of that where we had a middle break and the end rhythm of 7 against 5. It kinda opens up a whole can of worms! There's some really light stuff going on but there's also a lot of heavy stuff in there too."

TeamRock then asked "If there's one thing that can be said about Tool records, it's that they're always worth the wait… any idea on when it will be ready?" Jones responded, "Ah man, I really appreciate that. It's refreshing to be interviewed by someone that loves music and actually knows about our band. Some of the journalists we've dealt with… it's been insulting to be interviewed by people that don't bother following music or even seem to like it at all - it's just a gig for them to get a paycheck. This lawsuit has really gotten in the way, all we want to do is get it behind us so we can focus on what we do best. I don't want to just get it out and worry about the next record, then look back and go, 'Why did I do that? It's a piece of crap.' I want to sleep well at night, it's my legacy you know? Some day, I'm gonna croak and I wanna look back on what I did and go, 'I worked really hard, took the time and had integrity.' I know our fans are frustrated and obviously want to hear new music. You gotta look at that in a good way and think, 'Wow - they really like us and they want more!' To be honest, you can't beat that feeling at all." He also talked about the lawsuit.
