During Tool’s set at the Northern Invasion festival in Somerset, WI over the weekend, Maynard James Keenan jokingly begged his bandmates to finish their parts on their new album. The frontman, who was wearing his riot gear, said the following:
“A lot of people recently have been asking me, Maynard James Keenan, what’s with the fucking riot gear? Well, I’ll tell you. I’m afraid of bananas, and other forms of fruit, because eventually you wonderful people are going to run out of fucking patience. So I beg you – Danny, Adam, and Justin, please finish your parts so I can finish mine and take this fucking riot gear off.”
So far, drum tracking is done, but the group are taking a break for some shows and music clinics.
