Maynard interviewed on Chilean Radio

Maynard has been interviewed recently on Chilean radio station Futuro 88.9FM in the leadup to coming Puscifer and A Perfect Circle shows, and despite being told not to, it appears they asked some questions about Tool. According to Google Translate*:

Maynard, do you have plans to come to Chile with Tool?

No. At this time, no.

I also read that there is a possibility of having a new Tool album soon.

No new disk. Not this year.

Is there plans?

I have not written any songs. So no, there is nothing.

There you go. I guess rumours of an impending South American Tool tour are bogus, nor does it reveal anything we don’t really already know on the new album.

The interview also suggests that the upcoming Puscifer shows in South American (and by extension I’m including Australia) will be more about the music than the theatrics, mainly due to the logistics of moving gear around.

Thanks to Domingo for the link!

i dont know whats up Maynards ass about not wanting tool questoins. hes slapping “tool” in the face by being that way. hes so bent on ‘i did things other then tool’ sorry buddy! your always going to be known for having done TOOL more then anything and he seems like hes not proud of that and he totally should be! we all know hes a crazy multi tasker/workaholic…not sure why he feels he has to prove himself so much and be a douchebag and lie/give lame answers to things related to tool. hes even writing a book to show… Read more »

“To be an artist is to be a liar” – MJK I’m certainly not suggesting he doesn’t get truly annoyed, or that he isn’t less than enthusiastic about Tool anymore (I don’t really think that, per se, but still…). But I think it’s worth considering that Tool has always followed an ethos of “less is more” and mystery being a key aspect to their work. You can call it overly optimistic, but I don’t think it’s a stretch to suggest that Maynard deliberately keeps things Tool-related that way because it is Tool. If you pay attention, Maynard is a big… Read more »

I thought people were “OGT” on this site??? T00l has always taken forever to record. Adam and the rest write the music….. which May-jay then sings over. no music to sing over… no music to release. MJK is the only one out there working so naturally people ask him where things are at with regard to new T00l. nothing new… same old, same old. i used to think all the mystery as to what they were upto was fun and exciting. now it’s just boring and old. it will be funny if the album doesn’t release till next year… and… Read more »

Maybe all of us annoying Tool fans will push him into a place where he will have the rage again and need to cathartically exorcise those demons once again via a new album 🙂

At first, I didn’t believe Maynard when he said he’s done nothing- I figured he was just fucking around and being a dick. I just couldn’t believe he’s done nothing. I’ve had a change in heart though- I’m sure he’s done nothing and it will be another year until this comes out. Hell, probably longer. For any hip hop fans out there, this album may be like Dr. Dre’s follow-up to the Chronic 2000 people have been waiting for for years.

Saturn…drags you down like a stone, or lifts you up again light & innocent.

Tool needs to jump to another branch on the tree of life.

“Personally I think The Fragile is a laughable piece of teen angst-y shit. “Industrial” music for Smashing Pumpkins fans.” HAHA, i dont mind the fragile but i didnt buy Reznors doom and gloom on it so much. with the downward spiral i still feel he meant what he said. he wasnt being whiny or fake..but i agree and have said in the last few years nine inch nails is a kids band. their good when your a teenager. but once i got older i just cant listen to that stuff anymore. even the old stuff thats good, i just cant… Read more »

I have a new “theory” and that is that Adam is out of ideas when it comes to music. Dude cant write 8-10 songs in 6 +years? i think he said everything he wanted to say and is struggling finding a way to end Tool with a record good enough to be called a Tool record.

Maybe that little tidbit in the latest newsletter outlining major news in f=the first weeks of February is that the album won’t be out this year. That would be Blair’s biggest dogact.

He turned a tour jam into a song(s) for the next album (Wings for Marie/1000Days). Yep, he is running out of… Read more »

Hasn’t there been some injury within the band that halts production for any album they’ve put out?

I’m excited for yall down under who might get to see Tool. But fuckin a, i hope a tour is used to clock in some major writing/composing time. 2014 feels like a very long time from now. I get the the whole secrecy things because it really does works and keeps us interested in Tool. But this is taking a little too long with not much given on the progress of the album. Hopefully more interviews with Danny will pop up soon.

I know a lot of you guys/gals have been getting increasingly frustrated about this sort of thing but I don’t see a point to it. What are you going to do about it? Write a nasty comment and assume that it’s going to shame them in to making a new album for you? Not happening. I was extremely grateful for when 10,000 Days came out mainly because I feared they were going to retire or break up. I first found them after they were done touring for Lateralus when I was 15 or 16 and thought I might never see… Read more »

ah, i didnt say i didnt like the fragile. its the last really good nin album imo. and i know im not the only one that thinks that way. but as far as ‘do your research’ about it what does that have anything to do with it? nothing. its how i feel on it with the lyrics and his ‘too fucked up to care anymore’ just seems a bit whiny and fake to me. i know what he went thru and all that….i just dont buy it. not on that album! but who gives a fuck anyway… lol i mean… Read more »
