Finally more news on a new Tool album hs surfaced. Earlier this year the prog legends hinted on their official website about the possibility of a new album. However frontman Maynard Kennan suggested otherwise. Recently drummer Danny Carrey has pretty much confirmed that there will be no new Tool album in 2013. Read the statement from his interview with Loudwire below:
‘It’s still the three of us right now and four of us it will be soon, you know, just working on all our parts and working on our compositions together’, Carey says, referring to Keenan’s current absence from the recording sessions. ‘Stylistically, we’re trying to push things in different ways, but it always comes out sounding like Tool no matter what we’re trying to do. We’re working everyday on it and it’s going really well, so I’m hoping we’ll get into the studio by the end of the year’.
When we asked about a possible 2013 release date for the album, Carey responded, ‘I doubt it. Right now, since we haven’t started tracking stuff at this point, it’ll be hard. We could have the record finished by the end of the year — that’s a possibility, but the logistics of getting it manufactured and getting the record company in line and all this stuff, I doubt we’ll be able to get it out before Christmas. We’ll see how it goes. Most likely, it’ll be early 2014.’
