Update: Ivonna Cadavar says Tool album DONE “any day now”

Twitterer (if that is the right term) Ivonna Cadavar posted a pic with Adam Jones from Tool not long ago, with an update of sorts on the new album.  Have a read and I’ll give you my thoughts below:

So while “any day now” sounds pretty promising, I find it hard to get too excited, as it would seem unlikely that Tool have been long out of the studio, and there’s no real confirmation that Maynard has recorded anything yet (though the optimist in me hopes he has).

So I think the quote in this tweet is a bit of hyperbole, but still it will be interesting to get an update from Adam himself on how things are going, and what kind of timeline we can expect.

Thanks to Gareth Osterloh for the tip!

Update:  Ivonna has clarified her tweet and confirmed Adam said “it should be DONE anyday now”, which by my interpretation is most likely referring to the general recording process.

Here’s the tweet:

I agree, seems like a very generic, off the cuff comment.

My conspiracy theory is that they are going to drop the album out of nowhere so it doesn’t have a chance to leak. That would be a dream if we got slapped in the face with a new TOOL album out of nowhere. However… I doubt it.

Still hoping for a double album.

I think for Tool and in relation to them. “Any day now”, means anywhere within 12 months. Because lets face it….Anything within 12 months IS any day to a Tool fan that has been waiting 12 years. Logistically them releasing anything before Maymay has finished touring with APC is bonkers.

Their dates in June 2019 tell us when it will be released. You tour immediately after a release, or on the release to capitalize on the window of oppurtunity . Not six months after.

What window of opportunity? They’ve been selling out stadiums without an album easily.

Window of opportunity in terms of album sales.$$$$$ Money cash money. I am not talking about selling tickets for shows. They are still delivering this for the label remember. So the release will be controlled to maximise cash.

I don’t believe for a second the new album will be released literally “any day now.” I could see Tool releasing the album out of nowhere, but I believe it is far too early. They have a long way to go. I think Adam is probably just getting done with his parts. I would like to believe MJK has already recorded his parts, but it doesn’t seem likely. Every time we thought they were ahead or just about to release an album, we realize that they we have to hurry up and wait.

There’s no way they will drop it as a digital release out of nowhere. It will be a 3 month (or more) wait after the announcement of the title of the album. They are gonna milk the shit out of the free hype and speculation. I’m also tipping that whatever the first single is will have a re —edited version of that video which was made for opiate, it was pretty cool. They are probably regretting using that for Opiate, it was a pointless venture. I’m mainly concerned with the possibility that Maynard is going to screw it all up… Read more »

For all his pomposity MJK is the reason we all listen to Tool! I trust he will bring his A-game to the new album

This album is going to kick so much ass, there is literally ZERO doubt about it. I personally hope everyone in the world loves it to death except for Maynerd above.

Musically it will be sufficient.
But vocals, we can’t be sure these days.
I will agree to dislike it just for you.

Maynard’s vocals sounded good back in 2016 at the live shows i saw on their mini tour. He actually sounded better than he did back in 2013.

I’d have to agree he was pretty on point when I saw him summer of last year as well. Can’t wait.

The new album will be one song … The 3-disc hyper-extended version of Opiate (I’d still buy it and love it) ha ha!

She will be beautiful.
