We’ve had a couple of posts from the Perfect Circle social media camp the last few days, suggestion that things are in motion for new songs this tour, putting further weight behind the claims an album is in the works.

First up was a post the other day from Maynard suggesting he had some new songs to work on for the coming APC dates:

With claims of #apc2018 some on twitter asked if Tool was off the cards for next year, to which Maynard’s response was “Both?”.  Despite that, I’d say it’s unlikely we’ll see a new Tool album next year, though perhaps they might actually get to a point where they can record it.

Also released this morning as a preview of sorts on the APC Facebook page.  It’s a short silent video with the text “The Doomed” on it.  I’d hazard to guess The Doomed is the name of a new song, and perhaps we’ll see this released in the near future (possibly the 17th according to this site).
