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