Tool’s Adam Jones opens up about… being a wrestling fan

Posted by on March 8, 2016

If there’s one thing that many a Tool fan would want to ask guitarist Adam Jones, it’s probably about how he can be a fan of wrestling, right? Well, not exactly, but Rolling Stone did get the guitarist to chat about his non-guilty pleasure of professional wrestling. And while the follow-up to 10,000 Days wasn’t expressly […]

Tool’s Adam Jones discusses “wonderful” new album

Posted by on November 23, 2015

One of the most common metal news tropes for at least the last six years has been discussing Tool’s new album. It’s been almost 10years since 10,000 Days, and we’re not sure how long we will continue to bring you updates about it, but to keep the tradition going, here’s the latest one. As some of you […]

Watch some kids nail a cover of Tool’s “Sober”

Posted by on July 15, 2015

Move over, Breaking Benjamin. While they did a perfectly serviceable acoustic cover of Tool’s “Prison Sex” that made its way online earlier this week, they just got blown away by a group of kids who mostly weren’t alive when BB’s first album came out in 2002. The OKeefe Music Foundation is a non-profit music organization that aims […]

Joe Barresi might be working on the next Tool album

Posted by on May 1, 2015

If it seems like California might fall into the ocean before Tool is done with the follow-up to 2006’s 10,000 Days, at least some progress seems to be being made. And while their April Fools Day stunt might have fooled a few people, guitarist Adam Jones appears to be continuing to troll Tool fans. A […]

Tool settle legal woes; supposedly making progress on new album

Posted by on March 15, 2015

Last month, Maynard James Keenan gave us a little hope that Tool was “slowly” making progress on its new album. Now Adam Jones is giving fans further hope about a new Tool album, revealing that the band’s long lasting legal issues have finally come to an end. Tool admitted last year that a lawsuit going […]

Maynard James Keenan gives an actual update on Tool’s new album

Posted by on February 26, 2015

We’ve been getting mixed signals regarding the progress behind Tool’s long awaited new album for years now. At this point, we’ve lost track at how many times a promising update about a new album seemed to get debunked shortly after (though to be fair, legal issues have gotten in the way). That’s why it’s rather […]

Motorhead confirm that Tool are in the studio [updated]

Posted by on February 16, 2015

Coming up on nine years since Tool released 10,000 Days, fans are taking every single opportunity to look for positives that a follow-up will be coming soon. With their fifth full-length album on “albums we’re looking forward to in 20xx” list since 2010 or so, it’s starting to seem like they’ll never put another record […]

Tool on the horizon?

Posted by on October 24, 2014

Well, this is progress. A few weeks ago, Tool’s webmaster said that writing and arrangement sessions for the band’s fifth full length album were “progressing nicely.” Guitarist Adam Jones added to the intrigue by Instagramming a picture of a song diagram with the hashtag #smokeonthehorizon. Early this morning, he Instagrammed another pic with the same […]

Report: Tool album progressing nicely

Posted by on October 14, 2014

It’s hard to think of a band more enigmatic and shrouded in mystery than Tool. Their follow up to 2006’s 10,000 Days has been on everyone’s “albums we’re looking forward to in the coming  year” since 2009, which was derailed earlier this year when guitarist Adam Jones gave an interview in which he said the band’s […]

Tool’s Adam Jones offers another status update

Posted by on July 25, 2014

A few weeks ago, we reported on the new Tool album. Or rather, the fact that there isn’t one and probably won’t be for a while. And while it’s frustrating for the many Tool fans that have been waiting seven years for a follow-up to 10,000 Days, it’s even more frustrating for the band, who have […]
