Kirk Hammett Says Tool Are Finishing The Artwork For Their New Album

The Metallica guitarist says that Tool’s Adam Jones has recently been dealing with artwork”.

While Tool have been slightly more forthcoming than usual with information regarding their new album, it’s fallen to Metallica shredder Kirk Hammett to offer up the latest update on the band.

In a new interview with The Rock presenters Jay and Dunc ahead of tallica’s WorldWired Stadium Tour later this year, guitarist Kirk revealed that he chats to fellow six-stringer Adam Jones regularly, and that Adam was dealing with artwork” for the new Tool record.

Well, I talked to Adam Jones quite a bit, you know, and the last thing I knew, he was dealing with artwork, so that’s great,” Kirk says. If they’re finishing the artwork, it must be close.”

Given that frontman Maynard James Keenan recently stated that the follow-up to 10,000 Days will be out somewhere between mid-May and mid-July”, Kirk’s assumptions that Tool are close” seem pretty accurate, then.

Fingers crossed…
