Tool Bassist Offers Major Update On ‘Awesome’ New Album


With the Chinese Democracyesque decade long wait for Tool’s new album, some fans have wondered if it will still happen. Tool bassist Justin Chancellor has offered a positive update in a new interview with Top Guitar. Chancellor said he didn’t want to answer the question about, yet did actually offer an update.

“Just trust me that it’s going to be awesome.”

“It’s in the oven. It’s cooking, it’s cooking.”

“So don’t ask that question. Just trust me that it’s going to be awesome. It’s going to happen.”

Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan discussed the 2016 U.S. Presidential election in a July interview with Daniel Carter. He said that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton as Presidents are steps in the right direction ‘spiritually’ due to their ethnicity and gender, despite thinking that Clinton ‘might be an asshole.’ Alternative Nation transcribed the quote.

“With the Trump thing I just feel like it’s kind of like the last, that old way of thinking is going to get loud, it’s not going to go quietly into the night, it’s going to shriek a little bit. That’s what you’re seeing, especially with all of the religious, you know ISIS and everything else, a lot of that is that same kind of thing, it’s more present.

I’m not a big fan of any of the candidates really, but I feel like from a metaphysical stepping way out of it perspective, I think the 8 years of having the first African American President is a step in the right direction spiritually. Never mind what you think about the candidate, or whatever was going on, whatever was accomplished or not accomplished, or undermined, or whatever, that’s not really the big point.

I’m not a huge fan of Hillary Clinton either, but I feel like that’s probably going to happen. Having a female President, if nothing else is just a step in the right direction, even though she might be an asshole, I don’t know, it might be what’s going to happen.”

Keenan also said he feels that the United Kingdom has a better education system than the United States.
