Earlier this week, Maynard James Keenan broke our hearts when he stated that a new album from Tool wasn’t coming out this year. Now comes drummer Danny Carey giving us a glimpse of hope that new music could see the light of day in 2013.
During an interview with New Zealand radio station The Rock FM, Carey claims that Tool haven’t ruled out a 2013 release for the long-awaited new album. He also says that bassist Justin Chancellor has been a major driving force behind the new material. Granted, that doesn’t exactly mean that Keenan has contributed anything yet to said new album. Still, it’s nice to hear that Carey is at least more optimistic than his singer about the release of Tool’s new album.
However, that’s not the only juicy tidbit the drummer revealed during the interview. Carey also let it slip that he did a session with Jason Bonham and “twelve really great drummers” for the score of the new Superman film, Man Of Steel. It’s unclear how involved said drummers actually are with the film’s score, being composed by Hans Zimmer. Still, the fact that we’ll likely get to hear Carey’s drumming in the new Superman flick sounds pretty amazing. And let’s not forget how cool it was to hear Tool in a trailer for another superhero film.
Listen to Carey’s entire interview over at The Rock FM now.
