Justin Chancellor had a chat with the Launch Radio Networks the other day and he had this to say:
“Honestly, I don’t know,” he said. “We’re in the second year of this tour already and it won’t be long before people have said it’s five years already. If we finish touring by, say, next January or February, once we’ve taken a little time off, it’s almost unavoidable that it’s gonna be a little while. I mean, honestly, I think everyone’s getting a bit older, and I have a feeling we’ll want to get on with it sooner than later this time.”
Maybe I’m just skeptical, but I’m sure there was talk like this just after Lateralus was released too. I won’t be expecting a new record until it’s confirmed they’ve hit the recording studio.
Thanks to Blabbermouth for the info.
