Tool update

STINKFIST FOLLIES: What on earth could Tool and Garth Brooks possibly have in common? Simple: they’re the last remaining high-profile digital holdouts. But what of the band’s next studio album, which drummer Danny Carey hinted could come out early next year? After all, Tool hasn’t put out an LP since 2006’s 10,000 Days; perhaps their attitudes toward the digital landscape have changed during the last seven years, but this crew doesn’t give a whole lot away. Here’s what Carey told Loud Wire: "We could have the record finished by the end of the year—that's a possibility, but the logistics of getting it manufactured and getting the record company in line and all this stuff, I doubt we'll be able to get it out before Christmas. We'll see how it goes. Most likely, it'll be early 2014.” But that’s only if Maynard James Keenan can get it in gear. “I have not written any songs,” he admitted in an interview on a Chilean rock station. So no, there is nothing.” (7/17a)
