Remember how we all got our hopes up about Tool’s album potentially coming out in April? According to Maynard James Keenan, that timetable is not happening.
Keenan responded with a flat out “No” to a fan on Twitter asking if the long-awaited follow-up to 2006’s 10,000 Days will be coming out in April.
The April release date rumor came via a fan-shot video of Danny Carey at a meet-and-greet at the recent National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Show.
A fan asked Carey for an update on the new album. Carey responded, “Yeah, it should be out mid-April. That’s the plan anyway.” (Question and answer takes place at the 0:33 mark in the video.)
The video above was the latest update pertaining to Tool’s new album since early January when Keenan tweeted out, “Update- Final vocals tracked MONTHS ago. Then U.S.-UK-Euro run w #APC. If Tool all inst are tracked, long process of Mixing now. Meanwhile write/film/track w @puscifer for #puscifer2020 & troll the band FBs with wine posts. #funnyshit #whileyouwerewhiningiwasworking”
At this point, I have a feeling I’ll be like Rose from Titanic talking about this album by the time it comes out.
