Maynard James Keenan Reveals If His Priority Is Tool Or A Perfect Circle To ‘Bitch’ Fan


A fan named Tool Bitch tweeted Maynard James Keenan asking, “Can’t wait to see @Tool and @mjkeenan at Northern Invasion! Will there be any new tunes revealed?? *crosses fingers reluctantly*”

Maynard responded to Tool Bitch, “#aperfectcircle2018.”

Tool Bitch responded, “But… but… Tool ??.”

Maynard shot back, “#aperfectcircle2018.”

See the captivating tweet exchange between Maynard and Tool Bitch below. Keenan also clarified in another tweet that Tool’s new album will not come out this summer.

Tool bassist Justin Chancellor played a never before heard riff at NAMM over the weekend. Could it make it onto Tool’s new album? We’ll find out when they release it! Watch below.

A troll named RepresentativeSilver recently posted the following on Tool’s Reddit, and Maynard James Keenan’s reaction is priceless:

There’s no way I can prove this, as I’ve built a name and career for myself that I’m absolutely not willing to risk. You’ll have to take my word for it.

The new Tool album will be out in May of this year. The vocals are finished, and the band is very far ahead of schedule. It’s obvious that doing new APC music has motivated Maynard, as the whole vocal process took less than two weeks.

There will be 13 songs, a few of which are under ten minutes, but the majority are LONG…If you thought the packaging for 10,000 Days was over the top, you are in for a treat. That’s all I’ll say.

The song that we know as Ascending is on there, but it’s paired with two other songs and is definitely the least interesting of the trio (although it’s still great–think Parabol/a). It’s followed by a song called Descending, and a third called Innocence.

The first single will be the title track–it will be out at the end of April.

The Reddit thread got well over 150 comments before the member deleted their account due to ‘harassment’ after many pointed out that they were full of shit and had no proof.

Keenan responded to a screenshot of the post on Twitter, calling it ‘horseshit.”

He also made a tweet stating that only a new A Perfect Circle album is imminent after a fan tweeted him assuming new Tool is coming soon as well.

A fan then tweeted Keenan, “When @mjkeenan says new tool and APC coming out. Life just got better fucking pumped for more intense jams..❤❤❤❤❤.”

Maynard responded, “But Only said new APC.”
