Tool New Album Release Date Hinted At By Big Name


Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan announced back in February that he expected the band’s new album to be released between mid-May and mid-July, and a later June or July release seems to be what is hinting at in a new concert advertisement. is the ‘Official Tourist Website for Prague.’ Their concert description states:

O2 arena, Českomoravská 17, Praha 9 – Vysočany, 190 00
Music rock & pop
Tue 4. 6. 2019 20.00

There are not many bands that boast such a great interest of fans and respect of critics. It’s a pity that their recordings do not come out more often, and that the concert tours also take place only once in a while. But there is no reason for sadness, because TOOL has a new album and before the release their European concert tour includes a stop in Prague.

Maynard James Keenan tweeted on February 8th, “Update- Midway through mixing. Most likely be a few recalls. Then some arguing. Then Mastering, Artwork, Video, Special Packaging, etc. Best Ballpark Guess- Release date somewhere between Mid May and Mid July. More focused updates to follow as we progress. @tool #simplemath.”

Keenan tweeted on January 4th, “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.”
