Danny updates us on the next Tool album

Loudwire has a chat with Danny recently, mainly about Volto! (that part of the interview is yet to be released) however they did canvass him about the next Tool album, and the chances of it coming out in 2013:

“It’s still the three of us right now and four of us it will be soon, you know, just working on all our parts and working on our compositions together,” Carey says, referring to Keenan’s current absence from the recording sessions. “Stylistically, we’re trying to push things in different ways, but it always comes out sounding like Tool no matter what we’re trying to do. We’re working everyday on it and it’s going really well, so I’m hoping we’ll get into the studio by the end of the year.”

When we asked about a possible 2013 release date for the album, Carey responded, “I doubt it. Right now, since we haven’t started tracking stuff at this point, it’ll be hard. We could have the record finished by the end of the year — that’s a possibility, but the logistics of getting it manufactured and getting the record company in line and all this stuff, I doubt we’ll be able to get it out before Christmas. We’ll see how it goes. Most likely, it’ll be early 2014.”

I think most of us knew by now 2013 was always going to be a long shot, so no real surprises there. Positive for me is that statement where Danny says “four of us it will be soon”. That suggests to me that with Maynard soon to join proceedings, this length songwriting saga is finally approaching completion. While I’m not 100% confident they’ll record this year, this is a step in the right direction.

Thanks to all those who emailed me the news!

There needs to be a meme:

Complains/rags on Tool and its fans

Visits fan site and comments more than anyone else

tracking is basic sound recording before overdubs and the usual “magic” that is created during mixing. in other words. this album isnt even close to being done.

my guess is mid-2014.
