2021 is the year that Tool’s Lateralus hits 20 years old! While there’s no indication the band will celebrate (yet) Kerrang have celebrated with a new, and insightful interview with bassist Justin Chancellor.
He reveals quite a bit about the writing of the album, and the tensions surrounding it. Even going as far as saying Tool spent the first day in the studio “having it out with each other”:
“We spent the first day in the lounge having it out with each other, kicking and screaming, laughing and crying,” grins Justin. “That whole day, we didn’t go into the tracking room at all.”https://www.kerrang.com/features/the-beauty-of-not-understanding-it-is-letting-it-stay-alive-tools-lateralus-at-20/
There haven’t been many interviews with Tool lately, but this one is excellent and really worth the time! Get cracking!
