No new Tool album in 2013
2013-02-06 by Jack Boaden | 146 Comments

According to Ultimate Guitar, Tool's frontman Maynard Keenan has denied the release of a new album.

"No new disc. Not this year... I have not written any songs. So no, there is nothing", said Keenan.

Same goes for the new A Perfect Circle release. Apparently, with the vocalist focusing on his work with Puscifer and guitarist Billy Howerdel being busy with Ashes Divide there is simply no time for work on a new album at the moment.

I read that Carey said in an interview with Rhythm Magazine they were 7 tracks in. So this must be a joke.

"We have six or seven really good frameworks that we’re working on. We’re over half way in my opinion. The first tune is always hard to get polished off. It seems like on every record we have this big, epic thing like ‘Rosetta’, ‘Wings for Marie’ or ‘Lateralus’. That’s the one we’re focusing on now. Once we knock out that, the other songs fall into place around it. We’re right on the fringe of knocking that big one out. We’re all excited and it seems to have progressed really well."

Maynard has so many other projects and hobbies that this really didn't surprise me. It disappointed me, but didn't surprise me.

"In the February 2013 issue of Rhythm Magazine, Tool drummer Danny Carey discussed progress on the band’s new album, “We have six or seven really good frameworks that we’re working on. We’re over half way in my opinion. The first tune is always hard to get polished off. It seems like on every record we have this big, epic thing like ‘Rosetta’, ‘Wings for Marie’ or ‘Lateralus’.

^ So Maynard just hasnt added the vocals yet. They usually do that last. Get the tubes out your bloody holes.

I'm taking him saying "I have not written any songs" as that he himself hasn't written any songs. The rest of the band has, but he himself hasn't written any lyrics or anything.
