Enlarge Tool with the Melvins' Buzz Osborne in February, 2018

New Tool Album Recording Sessions Moved Up To March?

Amongst yesterday’s revelations about an eventual new Tool album — in addition to the news that Maynard is almost finished writing lyrics and that Sebastian Bach and Buzz Osborne visited the band to hear the instrumental tracks — was this tidbit directly from guitarist Adam Jones via his Instagram account:

“Huge fun & honor performing all the new tunes for Guinea pigs Sebastian & #KingBuzz b4 the recording starts in April. Still instrumentals with Mjk in town working on killer lyrics. Exciting!”

But at some point between the time we reported on the news yesterday and right now, Jones’ post changed. Now it looks like this:

“Huge fun & honor performing all the new tunes for Guinea pigs Sebastian & #KingBuzz b4 the recording starts in March. Still instrumentals with Mjk in town working on killer lyrics. Exciting!”

Jones edited the post to change the month of recording from April to March! The rest of the text is unaltered. Very interesting.

No matter whether the album is recording in April or March, drummer Danny Carey’s promise that the new album will be out this year seems likely to be kept. At which point we can finally stop posting silly tidbits of speculation about when the new Tool album will come out. Huzzah!

Exciting! ————————–Repost from @sebastianbach @TopRankRepost #TopRankRepost How lucky am I? Spent yesterday getting my face melted by 3/4 of TOOL at the TOOL headquarters / rehearsal Studio. My very own private Tool show just missing the vocals! This is not just your average simple rock and roll music. This is progressive metal at its most atmospheric and right when you get into a groovy trance you get beat over the head with riffs so heavy it feels like a TOOL. Some tunes were so pummelling it felt like I was getting a deep tissue massage! in fact they could call the record that. No song was shorter than 7 minutes and some were 20 minutes long! Just my idea of how to spend the perfect day! Thank you so much to my great friend Adam Jones and Justin Chancellor on bass for your hospitality! Danny Carey you are one of the most talented drummers I have ever seen in my life and such a nice fun dude! You are all inspirations to me & thank you so much for the great preview! I can only Imagine what the Majestic vocals of Maynard James Keenan would sound like on top of this music. If it's as delicious as his wine is, then I am buying this record for sure! 🎛️🔈🍷cheers guys ! It was also great to see Buzz Osbourne the guitar player for The Melvins, who I last saw backstage in Seattle (I think) when we were drinking beers with Chris Cornell decades ago. Always good to see someone still doing great so many years down the line! #Melvins #Tool #MathRock #Rehearsal #rock #survivors
