New Tool Album Delayed by Freak Scooter Accidents

FUSE TV - New Tool Album Delayed by Freak Scooter Accidents

It's been over six years since Tool released their last album, 10,000 Days, and while the band are at work on its follow-up, fans now have a scapegoat for the delay: Vespa scooters. 

Two unidentified members of the alt-rock band were injured in two different scooter accidents, derailing the band's writing sessions for their next LP.

The group opted to not name the members, but revealed in a website post that one member suffered a head injury and multiples cuts and bruises, and that just days later another suffered several broken ribs and a dislocated shoulder when his scooter slipped on icy roads. 

"The New Year started off on a bad note as far as writing and arranging sessions for Tool's next record," the band wrote to their website. "Because of the physical nature of the musical involvement involved, 9 DAYS of jamming were lost."

They went on to explain: "Coincidently, a few days prior to the mishap on the scooter, another person involved with Tool also wound up in the hospital after crashing his Vespa in Hollywood."

But all is not lost: The members involved are recovering and "writing sessions resumed last Monday [January 21]..."

In other Tool-related weirdness, guitarist Adam Jones proposed to his girlfriend at the World Wrestling Entertainment's Royal Rumble. Watch footage at WWE.com.
