After the announcement
of the new Tool
album's completion had fans tingling with joy last week, the follow-up statement is bound leave them crushed, as the band's new record is not finished after all.
The group posted the exclusive info via Rolling Stone
, saying, "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,"
the statement concludes.Jones
also personally addressed the matter via Twitter, adding, "FYI, 'The record's done and it's coming out tomorrow' is what I said yesterday, followed by 'just kidding...'"
So the album is not "100% done"
after all, but the work process is clearly heading along. Meanwhile, the band is still busy out on the road with their first US tour in two years.
