Tool's fifth studio album is coming. Guitarist Adam Jones hosted an Instagram Live session over the weekend and he wrote to a participant in the stream: "Music is done. Lyrics coming in hard."
Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello described the band's new music (which he's heard) as "epic and brutal,"
"We'll probably have it done in the first half [of 2018] if things go as planned," Frontman Maynard James Keenan has not been forthcoming on his contribution to the new album.
In May, Tool is set to perform at the Rock on the Range Festival alongside A Perfect Circle, Avenged Sevenfold and Alice in Chains and then a week later APC is at ROCKLAHOMA. Maybe the Rock on the Range show will be the launch for the new album?
