Scooter crash delays Tool album further

By | Published on Friday 1 February 2013


As established last year, Tool are working on a follow-up to their 2006 album ‘10,000 Days’, but they’re not doing so particularly quickly. And now recording has been delayed further after a member of the band was involved in Scooter crash.

Reports the band’s website: “The new year started off on a bad note as far as writing and arranging sessions for Tool’s next record. For the most part this was due to a ‘minor’ accident on a Vespa scooter (slick road conditions being the cause) by a certain band member that resulted in several broken ribs and a dislocated shoulder”.

The message continues: “Because of the physical nature of the musical instrument involved, nine days of jamming were lost, although I’m happy to report that the person involved is recovering nicely, so much so, in fact, that writing sessions resumed last Monday (21 Jan), despite it being a holiday for many”.
