Tool Member Reveals What Month Band Plan To Release New Album


Tool drummer Danny Carey told Overdrive in a new interview that Tool’s new album would be out by May, though he admitted it may be wishful thinking.

“It’s all coming together really well. We’ll be hitting the studio again very soon and have a couple of gigs in May [Coachella Festival], so hopefully, we’ll have the album out before that. It’s wishful thinking at this point. I actually think I said that this time last year. [Laughs]

Asked if Tool have “a lot of material for the album,” Danny replied:

“Yes, there’s a lot of material that’s already done so, we’re looking to go into the studio pretty quickly here and off we go! Things are just rollin’ along. We don’t just hang about here in Hollywood, we are pretty much working all the time.”

Carey previously told Kerrang:

“Whatever those guys play is how they express themselves. Adam [Jones] and Justin [Chancellor] aren’t musically educated, so they just come up with the weirdest shit.

“I just try to anchor it down and make it simple. The cool thing is every time I think I’ve simplified it as much as I can, we’ll give it to Maynard [James Keenan] and he’ll do something even more simplified – to the point where practically anyone can sing it!

“It’s simple shit and it’s coming out, man. The tracks are long… too long! Definitely too long for the radio! [Laughs]”
