New Tool album “100% [not] done”

By | Published on Monday 10 March 2014


So, the new Tool album is “100% done” and coming out any day now. Or so said Crave Online on Friday citing a conversation with guitarist Adam Jones backstage at one of the band’s gigs last Thursday.

And why would Crave lie about such a thing? Well, it didn’t. What it failed to hear/report on was the follow up line, “just kidding”. After the Crave story emerged online, Jones took to Twitter to clarify: “FYI, ‘The record’s done and it’s coming out tomorrow’ is what I said yesterday, followed by ‘just kidding…'”

Of course Justin Bieber followed up his first retirement announcement last year with a “just kidding” type get out, and yet he hasn’t been seen or heard from since. But Tool HQ has confirmed that the ‘kidding’ here is for definite.

Said the band to Rolling Stone: “Last night, Adam Jones, in a private conversation with fans attending the Portland Tool concert, joked that the band’s new album was not only finished but coming out the next day. Unfortunately, his off-the-cuff joke was taken out of context. Work on the forthcoming album is ongoing and as soon as it is done, trust me, we will be the first to let everyone know”.
