It appears that the first new Tool album in 12 years is imminent. The band shared a teaser on Twitter, featuring a date of August 30. See it below. According to Consequence of Sound, the band also revealed the date during a concert in Birmingham, Alabama last night, encouraging fans to share it on social media.
Earlier this year, Maynard James Keenan revealed the album was “midway through mixing” and estimated release date “somewhere between mid-May and mid-July.” A month later, the band shared a photo with producer Joe Barresi and engineer Bob Ludwig. They also recently announced new U.S. tour dates.
Tool’s last album was 2006’s 10,000 Days. Last year, Maynard James Keenan’s supergroup A Perfect Circle released Eat the Elephant, their first LP in 14 years.
