Maynard Confirms New Tool Album Is Coming This Summer

Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan says the band’s long-awaited new album is due between “mid-May and mid-July”.

2019 has, so far, been especially frustrating in the wait for the new Tool album: first drummer Danny Carey said in a video that it would be arriving in April, and then frontman Maynard James Keenan denied that.

However, Maynard has now given fans something of a more concrete deadline, revealing that the release of the follow-up to 2006’s 10,000 Days will be out “somewhere between mid-May and mid-July”. Granted, that’s not an especially narrow timeframe – but at this point, we’ll take it.

The frontman’s full update is as follows:

Midway through mixing. Most likely be a few recalls. Then some arguing. Then Mastering, Artwork, Video, Special Packaging, etc. Best Ballpark Guess- Release date somewhere between Mid May and Mid July. More focused updates to follow as we progress.”

Could the new record be arriving ahead of Tool’s headline set on the Sunday of Download Festival in June? Very possibly.
