In a new interview today, Adam has a chat with Yahoo Music about the lawsuit, and also gives us some further information on Tool’s new album:

“When you try to be ethical and sleep well at night and try to do the right thing, and people around you are not doing the right thing and trying to take advantage of you, it really affects your creativity and your sleep and your relationships with people and everything you do,” Jones reveals in an exclusive interview with Yahoo! Music. “We would have had an album out a long time ago, we would have been taking more tours. But we’ve been discouraged and distracted by this major lawsuit, which is the worst thing that’s ever happened to us. It reminds me of one of those ads you see on TV where a guy goes, ‘Have you been in a car wreck? Call us!’”

Think what you will in regards to the effect of the lawsuit in regards to the delay, but it’s good news to hear that Tool are now firmly back on track, hopefully to at least hit the studio this year.
