No New Tool Album In 2010
2010-03-12 by Alex C. Soothsayer | 101 Comments

Maynard James Keenan has said in a recent interview that he is too busy with other projects
to commit to recording a new Tool album. He metaphorically said:

"I don't know if I can right now. I am on the operating table and I'm breaching, I'm
having a baby. The idea of making another baby right now is not appealing"


Keenan is on the road right now with his side project Puscifer and has a DVD release of a
wine making documentary entitled "Blood Into Wine."

I think the idea was Puscifer and his wine thing would be cleared by 2011 leaving him open to do Tool. Plus he's alluded to working with the rest of the band after Puscifer in other interviews.

You need drugs. Perhaps you'll take my Dan Deacon references less seriously(though I am in a tool thread).

10,000 days is a near perfect record. Why it was not as well received as their other albums is mind-boggling.

Yeah, I sort of saw this one coming. Maynard is really serious about focusing on Puscifer and trying to build up that fan base. I just hope they deliver us some new stuff next year at least.
...They really do have the most frustrating hiatuses.

lol at anyone calling Aenima a consistent album.

10,000 days is a near perfect record.

Fucking LOL! 10, 000 days was decent for the first half, the second half was boring as shit. Though I must admit it does contain one of their best songs, i.e "The Pot".

I don't know why everyone doesn't like 10,000 Days btw. Every Tool album is different, and it seems like a lot of people got stuck on their Lateralus or Aenima sounds. I'd rather have another unique album than some Lateralus B-sides horseshit.

10 000 Days was great. But so were Aenima and Lateralus. It's a shame that they won't release any new Tool this year, but maybe the next album will be better.

And the guys 1996 - 2001 - 2006 - 2011

What about Undertow? 1993! And okay, if we exclude that, what would be in the idea of a cycle like that? Albums come out when they are ready. Well, okay, now that we're speaking of Tool it could be that the stars would be on the right place that exact year for the universal truth to reveal but... yeah. A damn shame still.
