Tool have been quick to dispel rumours they had completed their next album following misleading reports in the media this week.
Tool guitarist Adam Jones joked with fans in Portland this week that the next Tool album was not only finished, that it was also just days off release.After his joke was written up as fact Jones dismissed the story publicly on Twitter telling one reporter “fyi “the record’s done and its coming out tomorrow” is what i said yesterday followed by “just kidding”…”
Tool then issued the following statement to set fans straight with the correct information. “Last night, Adam Jones, in a private conversation with fans attending the Portland Tool concert, joked that the band’s new album was not only finished but coming out the next day. Unfortunately, his off-the-cuff joke was taken out of context. Work on the forthcoming album is ongoing and as soon as it is done, trust me, we will be the first to let everyone know.”
Tool’s last album was 10.000 Days in 2006.
