I disagree. It's going to be the best album Tool's put out in more than a decade.

If there were no reward to reap
No loving embrace to see me through
This tedious path I've chosen here
I certainly would have walked away by now

Gonna wait it out
Be patient

TOOL RECORDING NEWS!

Who’s ready for some major breaking news? Brace yourself; get ready… okay, here we go. We are very excited to announce what is sure to be welcome news for both fans of TOOL and prog-metal enthusiasts in general. After all the years of writing and arranging (and re-arranging) at the band’s loft, I can at this time officially report that the guys have moved into a major studio where the recording process for the next album is about to begin in earnest. For the past few days the band members have been getting sonically adjusted to their new surroundings - dialing in the equipment settings and restaurant catering choices - in preparation for Danny to begin his tracking any time now – perhaps by the time that you read this!

I am also excited to announce that ‘evil’ JOE BARRESI will once again have his capable fingers at the engineering controls for what will certainly be another masterful TOOL offering by the talented team. Pinch yourself if you want, but I have been told that all systems are GO at this point for the upcoming sessions.

I will be posting periodic bits and pieces on the progress of the tracking once the guys get deeper into the recording process, and hope that all of you will keep checking back to the official website for these updates. In the meantime, be sure to also visit the individual band members’ sites and socials (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc.) for more inside glimpses as TOOL prepares for the next stage in their musical odyssey.

I would say early/mid 2019 at the latest. Writing is always what took them forever. If they're actually diligent the studio the whole thing could be recorded in a few weeks. But that's getting way too optimistic.

Not specifically Tool-centric, but the APC show at the Arlington in SB tonight was pretty great. They have one song on the new album I'm not stoked about (you know the one if you were at the show; very pop-esque) but the rest was good stuff.

Hopefully new Tool early next year!

I got a notification that Tool was touring through my city. So i look at ticket prices and they're $500. I'm thinking, wtf...look more into it. It's just some members of tool doing a 'music lab' where they talk about composing songs and shit.

These guys are douchebags

Was it 'So Long, and thanks for all the fish?'

What a deal. For $500 you too can learn how to spend the next 13 years composing a single album!

That'd be the one. I hadn't heard it before the show, and it was hard to pick out the specific lyrics. Just a pretty big departure from what sounds like the rest of the album.
