Anyone familiar with Tool know that the wait in between their releases is worse than watching paint dry. It’s unbearable. Each album’s waiting period has grown larger over the years, and now it’s been nearly 6 years since 10,000 Days was released. Needless to say, the fans are yearning for a new album, and they deserve it for sticking around this long.
A couple weeks ago, Danny Carey visited the School of Rock in L.A., a school for upcoming musicians who love to play their instruments. He jammed a couple songs with them, which were actually really good. It’s nice to know that he can be down to Earth and do stuff like this, despite some people having less-than-satisfactory stories about meeting him in the past.
He also said, in an interview with Loudwire, that they are expecting to enter the studio in June or July to begin recording their 5th studio album, which nobody but the band knows any information about. I’m so excited. Tool hold a special place in my heart, and I even wrote about their album for my first “Albums That Almost Got Away” post. I can’t wait to hear what they come up with next.
We will keep you updated as information comes, but anyone familiar will understand if we don’t have much more to say. The band like to keep things under wraps until the last possible minute. Besides, even if they said nothing until the day of the release, it would still sell millions of units.
