Tool Share Cryptic New Studio Photos: ‘Soon’


Tool guitarist Adam Jones recently posted three Instagram story photos that appeared to be about the band’s new album. First was a photo of a room with art on the wall with the word ‘Soon’ written above it. The second photo is a record player with a rock on hand sign caption, followed by a third photo featuring his guitar pedals in the studio.

Producer Joe Barresi has also shared new photos of Adam Jones gear. He posted photos on Instagram with the caption: ‘Holy mountain of amps.’

Barresi shared another amp photo a week or so ago with the caption: ‘Weapons of mass distortion.’

Jones posted a photo of a strange guitar pedal a few days ago on Instagram. He wrote the caption, “#HellMouth ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿฝ @abominablepedals.”

Jones also recently posted about his time working on Jurassic Park and Terminator 2, “Thanx for the cool post #MattWinston ~ Repost from @stanwinstonschool ~ Do you know that, Tool’s co-founder Adam Jones was special effects makeup artist? And before starting his career as one of the greatest rock musicians, Adam’s resume includes films like Pet Sematary, Predator 2, Terminator 2 and more. In this behind the scenes from the making of Jurassic Park, Adam sculpts the spitter aka dilophosaurus maquette at Stan Winston Studio.”

    Another tease?

      The guess that came to mind, when I saw the museum-looking photo, with a “”soon caption; It’s in reference to the Alex Grey building, which is underway. That’s just a guess, but that looks like his/their style, too.

      As a Christian follower, that whole shrine thing just gives me the creeps. I just want to enjoy music from my old imaginary friends. I hope that tool is not joking… finally, but in any case, that new APC is effing fiah!

    Yep Tool is like a high school virgin and I’m tired of blue balls! At this point I dont care about another album from them.
