Tool Planning to Record Summer 2012
2012-06-06 by Glassjawx | 108 Comments

It's been nearly 6 good years since Tool released 10,000 Days back in 2006. Already
surpassing their regular time-length between albums (5 years), they have left us to wonder
exactly when a new album might be released. We've looked far and wide for any credible
news regarding a another album, often to no avail. Recently, there were rumors of a new
album being released in May, and May has passed with no new Tool. So when is Tool going to
give us something new?

Let's be honest here - most news about the progress of Tool often comes to us through
messages that don't always make the most sense. After years of reading vague, cryptic
writings, false rumors, and off the wall ramblings hinting at the possibility of a new
album, many fans have learned to approach new info with a sense of distrust. It's
something that has become a staple in the Tool community, something nearly every Tool
fan is aware of.

But this time around, we're seeing something new in the way Tool is communicating with us.
We're being given direct, concrete answers. Tool drummer Danny Carey, while taking part in
a recent "Artist Spotlight" interview, clearly states - "I’m hoping we’ll get in the
studio by June or July and start tracking. That’s the plan anyway." He is then asked how
long it will take to record the album once the band is in the studio. "The tracking part
I’d say [takes] two to three months then probably a month to mix and master and that’s
it." To see the footage of this being said, follow this three-part interview linked here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2t1lt99CWnA

So there you have it - concrete information revealing that the members of Tool are
planning to record their new album this Summer. Expect a Fall/Winter release, and be very
excited. Kudos.

Pretty much where I'm at with Tool as well. I'm anticipating a new album cuz I know it'll have that one song (maybe two) that just blow you away. But IMO these guys cannot make an album I could listen to all the way through.

10,000 Days was a mixed bag. It had some great songs, but there was some ideas in say, Right in Two that felt ripped from older songs. It's been what, 6 years since they last came out with an album? I hope they've grown a lot more since then.

That's the issue Glass your article is misleading. You said set to record but that's a false statement. I'm not questioning your
eagerness for a new release. You're being flamed because you need to fix the heading of your article. I'm sure your cool but
it's not rocket science.

I learned to stop waiting, begin masturbating when it has an official release date (tracks recorded and everything), and jizz for an hour when listening the album. (followed by a couple of bong hits in order to not focus on the testicular pain that will follow.)

Doesn't bother me that they release a record every 5-6 years, at least they can live by doing their thing, whether it'd be wine or kickass psychedelic paintings. Also I'm soooo going to drum after this.

all the members of tool are involved in many other bands/projects. most bands that put out album after album frequently are not heavily involved in other projects. i wish tool worked faster but they have busy lives and when they do finally put out a product, it is a very well conceived and polished one. take all the time they want, as long as it happens eventually. theres other music in the meantime.

Dear Christ the Tool fanboyism is getting painful.

That aside, whatever. I liked Lateralus, Undertow, and 10,000 Days but like most people have said I'm not going to bother getting my hopes up until some actual information drops.

And who gives a shit about how the news article is written? Seems the fun thing to do on news articles is to talk about how shit it's written rather than talk about, you know, THE FUCKING ARTICLE.
