Tool drummer Danny Carey says the band have "tons of new material" for a new album


Tool fans, take a deep breath, there might be another album on the way sooner than you thought if drummer Danny Carey is to be believed. It seems the band are like London buses, you wait 13 years for an album and then two come along one after the other.

With Fear Inoculum being released just a few weeks back following the band’s 13-year hiatus from an LP record, one of the album’s standout performers has hinted that there may be another on the way as he reveals Tool has “tons of material” ready for a new record.

Speaking to Metal Hammer, the drummer, whose percussion on the recent LP is second to none, said on Tool’s future: “It’s hard to say. We’re going to tour on this probably for two or three years at least, I imagine. It feels like what we’ve done on every album, and then I guess we’ll see where we’re sitting after that.”

But he did also share that he hoped he could be back in the studio soon to “knock out another record.”

He continues: “We have tons of material. It’s not going to take 12 years, or if it does, I’ll probably be so old I probably can’t pick up my sticks any more! But my hope is we’ll do another record and just keep moving forward.”
