Well today I have good news and bad news for you all.  Lets start with the good.  According to a recent MTV interview with Maynard at the Grammys, he claims that Tool will “start writing the new Tool record right away”.  Nice to have a short turnaround for a change.  If this is the case the I’d say we can expect a new album in about 12 months time.

The bad news?  Well the article also claims that “with Tool’s touring schedule wide open for the foreseeable future, he said it’s time for the band to buckle down”.  I guess that means there are definitely no more plans to tour Australia or anywhere.

But if we get a new album without a 3 year wait, then I can live with that!
