Tool guitarist Adam Jones shared a brief, yet quite significant update regarding the band’s massively-anticipated follow-up to 2006’s “10,000 Days,” noting during a recent live stream:
“Music is done. Lyrics coming in hard.”
Over the past years, Maynard said on several occasions that he cannot start working on the lyrics until the music section is complete, which now finally seems to be the case.
Several significant updates regarding the record have recently surfaced, you can check them all out below.
Drummer Danny Carey was rather optimistic, expressing hope that the record will drop before May, telling Overdrive:
“It’s all coming together really well. We’ll be hitting the studio again very soon and have a couple of gigs in May [Coachella Festival], so hopefully, we’ll have the album out before that. It’s wishful thinking at this point. I actually think I said that this time last year. [Laughs]
Asked if the boys have “a lot of material for the album,” Danny replied:
“Yes, there’s a lot of material that’s already done so, we’re looking to go into the studio pretty quickly here and off we go! Things are just rollin’ along. We don’t just hang about here in Hollywood, we are pretty much working all the time.”
