Maynard James Keenan Reveals Why He’s Frustrated With New Tool Album


Tool singer Maynard James Keenan recently announced that he has finished recording his vocals for the band’s new album, and in a new tweet, he doesn’t appear to be happy at all with having continue to wait for his bandmates to finish the record.

ACrowleybeast tweeted, “I know that when I am forced to linger on a book longer than I would like to, I feel like the character’s are on life support, and I am ready to come to a conclusion! How does it feel as a musician when it comes to a project that is incomplete for longer than u would like?”

Maynard responded, “Like a slow death.”

Keenan previously tweeted, “Update- Final vocals tracked MONTHS ago. Then U.S.-UK-Euro run w #APC. If Tool all inst are tracked, long process of Mixing now. Meanwhile write/film/track w @puscifer for #puscifer2020 & troll the band FBs with wine posts. #funnyshit #whileyouwerewhiningiwasworking.”

Tool are set to tour in Europe this summer, and to release their new album at some point in 2019. Maynard James Keenan will release a new album and tour with Puscifer in 2020. Keenan just finished up A Perfect Circle’s worldwide tour for their new comeback album Eat the Elephant.
