New Tool Album May Take Longer Than Expected

December 21, 2016

It's been one of the highest-anticipated albums since the band announced they'd be getting back together to make new music. But in return, Tool fans are going to have to wait a little while longer.

Bassist Justin Chancellor spoke with Bass Player Magazine although they are still writing new music, they have currently been working on the same song for the last few months. 

“We’re pretty deep into the writing process now, and we’ve narrowed things down to big groups of ideas," said Chancellor. "For the past few months we’ve been working on one of the newer songs fairly exclusively. We get the gist of it and find the main themes that make up the skeleton between verses and chorusesThen we explore different ways we can depart from that and come back to it and flip it upside down, and take the time to see what else is there. Everyone knows we take our time. We’re really trying to be responsible with ourselves in trying to discover ideas that haven’t been discovered before. It’s kind of an alchemy, how we experiment.”

The last album Tool made together was 10,000 Days back in 2006, and if we are not expecting a new release in 2017, Tool's new album will officially be their first one in over a decade.
