Justin Chancellor was at the Warwick Bass Camp recently, and took some time to speak with Jakub Milszewski from Top Guitar about Basses, M.T.void, football as well as a sneaky Tool update:
For those not interested in watching the video, and just want the Tool “news”:
just trust me that it’s gonna be awesome…..it’s gonna happen – it’s in the oven, it’s in the oven…..it’s cooking, it’s cooking
Hopefully some kind of solid update from the band isn’t far around the corner.
It would be great to get a solid update by the end of the year.
Perhaps Adam will give Tool fans at the VIP sessions on the coming min tour an progress update.
That’d be the day…Prob more like “were still writing, no maynard hasnt even heard it yet. But we’re still working on a video for a song from the early 90’s that’s not even the best song on that album”. (That would be sweat) For $500 you can hear the same news we’ve been hearing for a decade. And adam won’t perk up until someone brings up wrestling. He’s like, the worst person to be a band leader ever. Get excited when talking about your new music. And if you aren’t excited about it then you should go back to the… Read more »
Hilarious. To be fair, the leaked audio of him talking about his technique was really enthusiastic. But that was just one “VIP” event.
The lack of communication is not a result of mystery or doing things their way. It means things aren’t going well.
When you’re in a bad relationship of any sort, communication starts to trickle to very little and you hide away like a hermit.
What would be some good questions for Adam or other band members that might be at the Q&A?
Excluding anything hostile or negative about the new album etc.
My guess is they’ll get to recording sometime next year and release date will be in 2018.
Still far to early to rule a line through 2017.
Yeah agreed. In the last year or so May 2017 was floating around as a potential release date. Summer 2017 could be realistic.
On Reddit, there was so much bollocks from fans suggesting that they would release it along with a certain ‘special’ tool related date or in line with the release dates of the other albums. Rubbish.
On a side note. 10% of me thinks they could just drop it out of blue.
20 April, 2008 (09:04pm) EXCLUSIVE RELAX Good things are coming… Be patient… Don’t speculate… Good things are coming… Just relax… 15 August, 2008 (01:15pm) “THAT LIKE A WOUNDED SNAKE, DRAGS ITS SLOW LENGTH ALONG” “Remember my news post back on April 20th? The one with the photo of a tranquil Caribbean sunset and thatched shade palapa awaiting those relaxing souls (with or without a Corona)? Of course you do. Well, as I said back then: Good things are coming… Be patient… Don’t speculate or over analyze. Don’t search the message boards for rumors or look for this on anyone’s Myspace… Read more »
In the spirit of over analysing, I thought one of Justin’s more interesting comments was when he compared being in a band, and not really being into it to being a good soccer team.
They need a new coach to kick them into gear!
If he was using a true metaphor (probably not), then the band has finished “adding their ingredients” and the album is now out of their hands, being “cooked in the oven”, so to speak.
I totally agree with your interpretation and analysis. Saying it’s “in the oven” suggests all the pieces have been put together and they’re just waiting for something else at this point. Whatever that might be.
I assume a more accurate description would be that they’re still experimenting with the recipe, trying to get it just right, and that there are a few additional ingredients to add (Maynard’s vocals), and then the oven comes into play.
It’s interesting to see how sensitive he reacts to the question. Sure, I guess people confront him with the topic 24/7, but nonetheless.
If something spectacular would happen anytime soon, I guess he’d be a bit more open and enthusiastic. But who knows….they’re pros.
Must be very annoying to play in such a great band, so that everybody asks you about it…
I don’t think he was particularly sensitive at all, in fact I took his reaction more to be joking around.
I too thought that he was a bit sensitive about it. Considering nobody ever really tries to talk to anybody but Adam and Maynard about anything… I figured that Justin would be a little less brash… about it. Might be too strong of descriptive words on my part. In no way did I think he was being a jerk about it but I also don’t think that he was jokingly saying “Don’t ask me that!” repeatedly. I think it’s funny that they do react so sensitively when they know it’s the burning question that everyone wants to ask. No we… Read more »
He is a cool dude. Too bad his band can’t get over this hump. Hope he is doing shit on the side to pass the time. Cause riffing off drop d all day can’t be creativity satisfying.
So does that mean standard E tuning players are bored with their music too? The timing of an instrument does not represent a limitation to creativity.

Holy mother of god…..
Is it going to happen??
This is awesome. The speech after the music is a Kennedy Speech to journalists in 1961. https://www.jfklibrary.org/Research/Research-Aids/JFK-Speeches/American-Newspaper-Publishers-Association_19610427.aspx
Is what going to happen…any idea what the timer is for?
Choices always were a problem for you. What you need is someone strong to guide you. Deaf and blind and dumb and born to follow, what you need is someone strong to use you.. like me, like me. If you want to get your soul to heaven, trust in me .Don’t judge or question.You are broken now, but faith can heal you. Just do everything I tell you to do. Deaf and blind and dumb and born to follow. Let me lay my holy hand upon you. My Gods will becomes me. When he speaks out, he speaks through me.… Read more »
What is this madness you’ve shown sir^*^****
it’s some kind of marketing/promotion for something hideen as a mystery. Nothing to do with Tool.
Also. I guess I have to get myself a Chelsea jersey. Justin seems like an earnest and honest dude, and I am happy to support him in all that he does.
Nah…get a West Ham one
It’s in the oven. It’s cooking. It cannot stay there for too long.
