Just a few days ago most of us were left speechless by the news of the new Tool albums finally in the works, Tool guitarist Adam Jones streamed a bizarre video on Instagram on Saturday. Naturally, fans speculated it’s footage from the new music video the band are working on, or potentially new video footage for live shows. However, it appears though to be a Melvins video, and you can see the thing below.
Maynard James Keenan also revealed some disappointing news for fans after it appeared he could make history and release new albums with A Perfect Circle, Tool, and Puscifer this year.
A fan tweeted Keenan, “@shannongunz I hope like hell @mjkeenan releases @aperfectcircle @puscifer and @Tool this year!!! How fucking more amazing can this man be!!!!” However, much to everyone’s disappointment, Keenan shot right back, “Not even realistic or logical.”
Does that mean Tool or Puscifer, or possibly both, will be put off until 2019? We’ll have to wait and see!
Maynard James Keenan takes care of his work in a quick and efficient manner according to his Tool bandmate Adam Jones. Jones had previously reported that Keenan would record his vocals with the band in March, and he is now telling fans that the legendary singer will spend three weeks in the studio recording his vocals.
Jones told fans in a comment, “March to April. We have MJK for 3 weeks in March 🤘🏽🤘🏽🤘🏽.”
A fan tweeted Maynard James Keenan yesterday saying, “Love it. Thank you Maynard! Hahaha. Don’t forget puscifer sometime down the road!” to which Keenan responded, “Already on it.”
Another fan tweeted, “My daughter is dying for new music! #toolarmy #thirdeye.” to which Keenan was quick to reply, “Go write some.”
As mentioned before, Maynard tweeted a major Tool update a few days ago, “Started getting music files from the boys w the word FINAL in the title a few months ago after 11 years of begging. That in theory means the tracks wont change out from under me while I’m trying to write stories and melodies to them. In theory. Still waiting for the FINAL on 1 but way ahead. Words & Melodies 100% DONE on all but 1.
Someday we’ll track them. Long way from the finish line, but at least we’re closer. Meanwhile new @aperfectcircle release on 4/20. #whileyouwerewhiningiwasworking #theresyourupdate #eattheelephant #aperfectcircle2018”
Reminder, new A Perfect Circle album will be released on April 20th!
