According to Tool drummer Danny Carey, the band will finally release their new album in 2018. He was recently interviewed by Loudwire and Metal Sucks about Legend Of The Seagullmen and confirmed the news to both sites.
When Loudwire asked if Tool’s new album will be out next year, he said the following:
“Yes. I’m saying definitely. We’ll probably have it done in the first half [of the year] if things go as planned. There’s setup times and manufacturing – I can never predict all that, it seems like it’s constantly evolving. [What time of year it will be out] I can’t tell you.”
This little exchange happened on the Metal Sucks podcast as well:
“Metal Sucks: My co-host Brandon talked to Justin Chancellor earlier this year. Justin made us feel like Tool would have a new album out in 2018. On a scale of 1-10, how much did Justin lie to us?
Carey: “He did not lie to you. On scale of how much he lied, it would be zero. It’ll be out. It’ll be out in 2018.”
