Tool Release Stunning New Album Teaser Video


Tool have finally launched an official Instagram page, with a teaser video for their long awaited new album. Maynard James Keenan recently announced that the new Tool album is set for release on August 30th.. As of this writing, the page already has 24,000 followers, including Wolfgang Van Halen.

The band announced on Twitter, “Secured an Instagram Acct. Populating soon.”

River Front Times recently released an article that seems to be attempting to troll the ultimate Twitter troll, Maynard James Keenan. The article calls Maynard an ‘unnecessary’ member of Tool, despite his voice being the heart and soul of the band for nearly 30 years.

Somebody has to say it: Maynard James Keenan is a completely unnecessary member of Tool.

The internet rejoiced earlier this year when everyone’s favorite pseudo-intellectual band announced it was going to tour again. Bros of a certain age flipped their shit and started saving up to buy (very expensive) tickets to the shows. They just love them some Tool.

And there is a lot to love about Tool, too. The band has been making great music since the 90s, mixing up a powerful combination of prog, psychedelic and industrial rock to create its own genre. Its members’ musicianship is indisputably some of the best in the business. Adam Jones’ guitar style is legendary, Justin Chancellor’s bass work is enchanting and Danny Carey remains a monster behind the drums and an unmatched titan in his field.

But then there’s James Herbert Keenan a.k.a. “Maynard.”
