Tool Fans Hope For New Album In The New Year
Maynard will hit the road with Tool for some dates prior to the next leg of the Puscifer tour this January. Though it is unlikely they will play any new songs on the tour, once those and the Puscifer dates have passed (March 18th being the last) — Maynard will likely get more involved Tool's next album. In October he gave a status report on the new material and explained the band's creative process to Loudwire:
"I'm allowing them [the other members of Tool] their space to do what they do, so we're still in that mode. Even if they told me how close they are to being done, I couldn't tell you because if I say 60 percent people will start counting down. When it's done everyone will know. But I haven't done anything yet. They write forever and then we go in and knock it all out. We're writing. We're writing vocals. But nothing's solid. With Puscifer, there's ideas and then we'll record stuff. Then we'll go back and change stuff and fix stuff and record new stuff before we finally put it all together. But with Tool, we practice jams, but there's no actual recording going on until it's time to record." more on this story
