Tool’s Keenan Talks New Album

Maynard James Keenan
It’ll likely be another eight years before we get a new Tool album.

I feel at this rate, we’ll all be dead before the next Tool album comes out. But the cockroaches are sure to love it.

“I’m gonna stop by the rehearsal space today, in theory, having beaten them up going ‘please give me music, please give me music, please give me music, please give me music, please give me music,’” says Maynard James Keenan, a guest on the WTF Podcast.

“In theory they have a CD for me today, to listen to some jams, so we can get this thing going,” Keenan explains.

OK, so maybe it’ll be sooner than I think.

It’d better be good, Maynard.

The Tool frontman does not have lyrics yet for any of the album, he says.

“Not till I hear the sounds,” says Maynard. “I’ve gotta hear the sounds, and I can’t write words until I hear the sounds—and I haven’t heard the sounds.”
