Anticipating something for a long time is often unbearable, especially when you’re expecting it at a specific time and then it is announced that it’s been postponed. The new album for the band Tool, which has been anticipated for 10 years, is no exception.
Tool is an American rock band formed in 1990 in Los Angeles, California. The band consists of vocalist Maynard James Keenan, guitarist Adam Jones, drummer Danny Carey, and bassist Justin Chancellor. Former members include bassist Paul D’amour.

The band emerged with a heavy metal sound on their debut album, Undertow (1993). They later became a dominant act in the alternative metal movement with the release of Aenema (1996). Their efforts to unify musical experimentation, visual arts, and a message of personal evolution continued with the release of Lateralus (2001), and their most recent album, 10,000 Days (2006), both of which hit the No.1 spot on the Billboard 200, gaining the band critical acclaim and commercial success worldwide.

No material, live or studio, has been released since 10,000 Days. Come May 2, it will have been officially 10 years since the release of that album. This has upset a lot of the band’s fans, as well as most of the rock crowd, because a decade without new Tool would be cruel to the majority of these people. (Loudwire)

In an interview with the Press Enterprise about Puscifer, one of his other bands, Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan touched upon the new Tool album and the status of where it was going. He stated, “We’ve found a common ground. We just can’t seem to move forward,” as if to say that there might be some hope for Tool, but for the moment, they can’t make progress on their new release, if it is ever to come out.
