Adam reported as saying the new album is 100% finished?

In news just at hand, it’s being reported on some sites that Adam has mentioned at VIP sessions that the album is 100% finished, and will be released later this year. From an article from Aussie site Crave Online:

At a pre-show VIP meet & greet in Portland, OR on Thursday afternoon on the band’s current tour, guitarist Adam Jones confirmed to our exclusive source that the alien-prog rock maestros’ new album is “100% done” and should arrive later this year. Aside from a mention of different time signatures than their previous work, there is no other information to report at the moment. The confirmation is certainly enough to get pulses racing, however.

Potentially very exciting news for impatient Tool fans, but let’s wait for something a little more official for now…

Update: for now this sounds like it’s 100% bs…

I was there. He said “the album is done, it will be out tomorrow”. It was clearly a joke.

Heh. Now he’s gonna get bombarded even more with the new album questions and it was a joke.

100% written would be the only conclusion I would make.
But… For once we have a reliable source in Fanny who was actually there when he said it. That he apparently said it in a joking way makes me not believe it all.
It would be very difficult for the band to have booked studio time and a producer like Bottrill or Barressi without that info being leaked.

“Later this year” , I could believe that.
“Coming out tomorrow”, I believe to be a joke.
But with Tool anything is possible.

ya, people are too quick to run with stuff. lets see if this keeps coming up at these meet and greets. if anyone is out their thats going to one ask him again! if he was joking if hes asked enough im sure hes going to tell the truth on it. make him crack! 🙂 they have their fun with us all time why not turn the tables for once! 🙂

If anything, saying 100% done would mean its fully written. I don’t see why by now the album wouldnt be very close to fully written for the studio.
They’re on their annual “let’s make our money for the year” tour, and then perhaps will prepare for studio time by June.

. It will still be 2015 at the earliest.

thank you drury. your comment about the tour really made me chuckle. had my finger on the purchase button for the Vegas show. planned to turn it into a road trip and thought “wait… what if it’s that same show since Coachella 2006”. and it is!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! These guys… Thanks for the laugh. 100% written is feasable but the interpretation of 100% “done”… oh no.
The other guy in the picture is Tom Morello BTW @krayonc.

so Crave are just playing with the situation… ok got it. Tough lesson, trust no one on the internet… i know i know.. “Welcome to the internet ;)” … I mean if people can laugh at jews and holocaust stuff …. what would stop people to make fun of this? as always the best pratice is to wait for official sources. Blair is official… but scary. Happy weekend ppl.

From the @puscifer instagram feed: “Joke. Pure Joke. Not even close to done.” http://instagram.com/p/lP5hWYqKMG/

From Adam Jones’ twitter, “hello greg. fyi “the record’s done and its coming out tomorrow” is what i said yesterday followed by “just kidding”…”

It’s not the same set list, just really REALLY similar.
🙂

I love tool. I love these songs. I love that Maynard is not obstructing my view of the octopus behind the drum kit too.

As for the drunk idiots and their cellphones…sigh.

brutal for Adam to have said something like that in what sounds like an obviously joking way and have it leaked all over the internet!

Way to go Greg.

Budsy, did anyone ask about “The Pot” video or any other videos/movie they might be working on? How about a “10,000 Days” vinyl?

the Vip sounds like no other information we know only you get to watch him say it in person. :’/ whoever said its brutal for Adam or whatever, please. like these guys dont screw with fans as it is. he knows what hes doing. it still doesnt answer if the album is done or not. it could be but not coming out tomorrow obviously. or its not done and its not coming out tomorrow. typical answer that 104 paid to hear. :/ really we shouldnt feed into this as much. it only gives them power with their words.

first question was new album? with everything said at this vip event it is quite clear why the album is not out…. its not about being lazy , it is about art and their craft. Any artist would understand this.

I myself have more appreciation for these artists and their process/being.
