Tool to Release New Album in April, According to Danny Carey, Band's Website Features New Animation
It’s been almost 13 years of waiting since Tool’s 2006 record, 10,000 Days, and the fact that music transcends politics has stayed exactly the same

Rage Against the Machine may be political, but you don’y have to agree with their politics to appreciate their music (enter Paul Ryan here (specific link chosen for a reason))…
Taylor Swift totally had the best video that year.
Tool Drummer Danny Carey was asked about the state of the new Tool record at NAMM this past weekend (NAMM: National Association of Music Merchants), responding with: “It's out mid-April. That's the plan anyway."
Tool have famously not made a record since 2006’s 10,000 Days, and have been generally quiet regarding the state of a follow up ever since. It’s only been recently, after fans started really getting pissed with the lack of new information that the band has been more upfront regarding the state of the record (10,000 Days was the band’s fourth record since their debut in 1993 (4 records in 13 years)), explaining that a tenuous lawsuit had contributed to its delay from 2007-2015.
Vocalist Maynard James Keenan said on Twitter a few months back that he was finished recording vocals, and today, the bands website has added some new animation (videos from Metal Injection):
Soon after, it was replaced with this:
Is it possible that this has nothing to do with a new record whatsoever? Is it morally acceptable that this TERRIBLE band has made us fools wait so long for a new record which is sure to SUCK anyway?
Am I making too big a deal out of all this?
A lot has happened in the past 13 years– For example: your politics matter far more than ANYTHING ELSE YOU MAY EVER DO IN LIFE, and the guys in Tool aren’t that talkative about their politics (although ‘Maynard’: oh, buddy, let’s not get started on him…)..
HOW CAN I POSSIBLY KNOW HOW TO TAKE ALL THIS?!
