New Tool coming when it’s ready, dummies

Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan has said that although the band are working on new material, he can’t guarantee when it will make its way into the public domain. He also berated the band’s fans for not being able to read.

Keenan told The Pulse Of Radio: “We’re just always writing and it’s just progressing as it progresses. We normally don’t say anything about anything until it’s actually happening, because there’s a lot of people online that apparently can’t read very well. I put an April Fool’s notice up there for the album release, and it was this year, 2011, I said, ‘New Tool album, such-and-such a date, 2009’, and everybody ran around like, ‘Oh, really, the new Tool…?’ God, you guys are dumb. I swear to God. You’ve got to read. Please, read”.

The band’s last album, ‘10,000 Days’, was released in 2006.
