Despite the many delays in years past, a new Tool album seems to be more and more of a reality these days. Though, ultimately, only time will tell. However, things seem to be looking up as the band is (wait for it…) going on a United States tour early next year. Furthermore, they’ve overcome their ongoing lawsuits and have shown signs of studio time. All of this combined could very well mean good things from camp Tool.

Better yet, guitarist Adam Jones just had a chat with Rolling Stone in which he let loose with some compelling information. It went a little something like this:

I’ll tell you, it’s wonderful. Things are really flowing and going really well, and I’m just blown away at the stuff that’s coming together. I’m excited and can’t wait for it to be done. It’s something I’ve been missing for a long time [laughs], that beautiful collaboration that we have because we’re all so different and have different tastes. But again, when you are all meeting in the middle and that thing you do that meets in the middle is just beautiful, it’s very rewarding. So yes, I’m very happy.

We probably have 20 potential song ideas now. Of course, 20 won’t be on the record. We’re just jamming. But I’ll tell you, there’s nothing better than having too many good songs then not enough. It’s great. You pick your faves.

So there’s that. While we wait for more news from Tool, here’s some music from years past. Oh, also, you can have a listen to what may very well be a new song by CLICKING HERE. Good day to you.
