Tool’s New Album Delayed By Lawsuit

News is coming through today regarding Tool’s new album. The last big release from the Californian quartet was 10,000 Days back in 2006 and since then, fans have been eagerly awaiting the next album. However, a recent lawsuit by a former associate has further delayed the new material, stating that they did not receive any credit for the artwork created for the group. The matter was further complicated when an insurance company that Tool hired to defend it against such lawsuits sued them for technicalities regarding the case. Talk about being caught between a rock and a hard place

Work for the new album started back in 2009 and since then, there appears to have been delays on the album’s future release. With contradictory comments from the guys, it was beginning to look like we’d be waiting a long time before the new album, and the lawsuits have not helped the process. Despite the legal complications, drummer Danny Carey has stated: “I’m hoping that we have something really solid recorded by the end of the year, but we’ll see how it goes…we’re making great progress. We’ve really knocked out a lot of good things, especially over the last month.”

Guitarist Adam Jones also added:  “We’ve been working at our own pace, but we don’t want to put out something and go, ‘This song’s fine, just put it out’….We’re just not going to settle for doing anything but our best work, and the fans appreciate that.”

Needless to say, countless fans would agree with both members. With that in mind, let’s just hope that there are no further delays for the guys as we all eagerly sit on the edge of our seats, waiting for an official announcement regarding the release date.
