Maynard confirms status of new Tool album

Maynard has given us a refreshing clear answer as to the status of the new Tool album on Twitter this morning, and while it sound like progress is positive, I think we can safely rule out a release in the near future, and probably not until next year:

So it sounds like the album is getting close to done from a songwriting perspective, but still not recorded at all.  Given that A Perfect Circle are about to embark on some more touring in support of Eat The Elephant, I think it’s a safe assumption that we won’t see Tool recording until late 2018, which means promises of a release this year probably aren’t going to come to bear.

Sebastian confirmed what I’ve been thinking from the beginning, this could very well be a double album- multiple songs over 20 min. Fuck yes!
