Adam undertook some more Instagram live streaming yesterday, and while it wasn’t some live cuts from the Loft, it did include a comment that the “Music is done. Lyrics are coming in hard“. Great news that the new Tool album seems to be on the home stretch.
Danny also spoke with Overdrive about the new Legends of the Seagullmen album, and once more suggested that things were happening in Tool-land:
OD – Danny, where are we with the new Tool album? Can you give us an update?
DANNY – It’s all coming together really well. We’ll be hitting the studio again very soon and have a couple of gigs in May (Coachella Festival), so hopefully, we’ll have the album out before that. It’s wishful thinking at this point. I actually think I said that this time last year (laughing).
OD– Do you have a lot of material for the album?
DANNY – Yes, there’s a lot of material that’s already done so, we’re looking to go into the studio pretty quickly here and off we go! Things are just rollin’ along. We don’t just hang about here in Hollywood, we are pretty much working all the time.
There’s a couple of interesting things in that statement. Great news that it appears they might hit the studio soon. The suggestion of Coachella and a May release seem odd ones. I suspect Coachella is a mistake and was added by the author rather than Danny (A Perfect Circle are playing Coachella) and a May release date seems outrageously optimistic for an album not yet recorded.
May 2019 for both perhaps!
