Where is the New Album?

Many fans are continually wondering about the latest Tool album—particularly when it will be released. It’s not finished yet, and it’s not really being discussed with the public—but it’s definitely in the works. Most know that since 2008, the various members have been taking a hiatus off and on, some writing, some working on other projects—from making wine to producing comic books.

Several pieces have been written over the years, but the album itself is not finished just yet. The band members really wanted to take a break from each other as well, without officially breaking up and with every intention of staying together and continuing to work—which is a much healthier situation than most bans get into, when you think about it. It’s a much more grown-up situation than, say, getting made and leaving over a girl or money or whatever breaks up bands these days.

Right now Tool is working harder at producing the album, and they’ve had a few shows since the 2008 break, but fans are really hoping that they’ll be fully performing again soon—as well as that their new album will stay on target and be released sometime this year.
