Authorized Maynard James Keenan Biography Coming Out In 2016

Tool fans may not know when the next Tool album will be coming out, but they can look forward to at least one new title in 2016.

Set for release in Fall 2016 is the biography of frontman Maynard James Keenan.  The book’s author Sarah Jensen said in a statement, “It’s been a year-long journey of proposals and queries and nibbles and ‘nopes,’ but my amazing agent, Ann Collette, never lost faith in the dream…Lots of work still to be done, but today’s priority: feelin grateful to everybody who’s been there for us throughout this project.  That means you!”

The as-yet-to-be-titled book will be released through Backbeat Books, which has released books on Jimmy Page, AC/DC, Joan Jett and more!
