One of the much-anticipated records in line for a lot of fans is a new album from Tool.
The band that has been quiet for almost a decade recently talked about the potential release of a new record soon.
Guitarist Adam Jones recently went on an interview with Rolling Stone and talked about a few songs they have written as a comeback after the band fought for a lawsuit in the past 10 years.
“Our greatest strength is jamming and coming up with stuff,” Jones said hoping that a new album from Tool could come up. “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.”
Time and money were wasted during their 10-year battle and Jones said in an interview how they had to face the lawsuit and hopefully move on from it to create a new album for Tool.
“We’re going to trial and we want to crush them,” he said. “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.”
Meanwhile, Maynard James Keenan revealed in a separate Rolling Stone interview one reason why a new Tool album couldn’t develop.
He said how the rest of the band is trying to relax and not write songs that he wished would happen.
“I write lyrics and melodies to music,” he revealed. “If I don’t have music, I can’t.”
However, in a Loud Wire report, Keenan is now working on his side project, Puscifer, who will release a new album soon, and that has announced a tour for the next few months.
