Tool Singer Has No Idea When New Tool Album Will Be Ready

FUSE TV - Tool Singer Has No Idea When New Tool Album Will Be Ready

Tool fans heartened by news that the alt-metal vets were nearing completion of a new album can once again lose hope. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, frontman Maynard James Keenan revealed his bandmates are still obsessing over songs he thought were ready months ago.

"I don't write the music. They write the music," Keenan told RS. "I wait for them to bring music to me. They tend to go back over and over stuff. It's a long process. For a person like me, it can be a very tedious process."

The Tool/Puscifer/A Perfect Circle singer voiced his frustrations that they have difficulty committing to the music they've already created. "They don't have to go through it 700 times," Keenan said. "They can trust that first thought. But that's their process, so you gotta let them do it." When asked if they're still reworking songs, Keenan bluntly admitted, "I couldn't tell you."

And it sounds like you shouldn't expect another Tool tour without new music. "As an artist you don't want to become a greatest hits version of yourself," Keenan said of touring behind old material. "I don't have any interest in coasting yet."
