Tool is now in complete game mode working on their new album after winning a decade-long lawsuit that got the band on forced hiatus for 10 years.
In a report by Rolling Stone, members Adam Jones and Maynard James Keenan revealed the progress of their first ever record after winning the lawsuit recently.
Being intact for quite a while, Jones revealed that the songs created for the LP will definitely feature tracks based on their previous works, which is expected to have some heavy sounds that would stand out as a signature Tool sound.
“Our greatest strength is jamming and coming up with stuff,” Jones said.
“We’re doing that really well now and I’m excited about everything we’re working on.
Some of it’s really heavy, some of it’s really complex and some is more atmospheric, but it’s definitely Tool.” As reported by Loud Wire , speaking about the trial that prevented them from creating a new album years ago, Maynard James Keenan revealed how switching with a new judge helped Tool to quickly win the case.
“We moved over to a North L.A.
courthouse and we had a brand-new judge, who was fantastic,” Keenan said.
“You know what his name was? Randy Rhodes! I knew the power of metal, and my appreciation of metal was someday going to be like a guardian angel.” “We’re going to trial and we want to crush them.
But every time we’ve gotten close to going to trial, it gets postponed and we’ve wasted money and time and it has just drained our creative energy.
We bought an insurance policy for peace of mind, but instead we would have been better off if we never had it and just dealt with the original lawsuit.” The new Tool album is rumored to be finished by the end of the year and is rumored to hit the shelves in a few months.
