Well, it won’t be April, but we are DEFINITELY getting a Tool album this summer, so sayeth the man behind it all, Maynard James Keenan.
Friday morning, he put out the following tweet:
Update- Midway through mixing. Most likely be a few recalls. Then some arguing. Then Mastering, Artwork, Video, Special Packaging, etc. Best Ballpark Guess- Release date somewhere between Mid May and Mid July. More focused updates to follow as we progress. @tool #simplemath pic.twitter.com/o6T4AloLtB

Maynard… always a troll. But at least there’s some ACTUAL info in this tweet.
Tool changed up their site imagery a while back, feeding speculations they were on the cusp of releasing something. Drummer Danny Carey even said they were eyeing April as a release. But Maynard squashed that.
It’s been 13 years since Tool released their last album “10,000 Days.”
