In an interview with Loudwire, Maynard James Keenan explained why bandmate Justin Chancellor’s revelation about Tool was “irresponsible.” Chancellor recently hinted that Tool is headed to the recording studio to begin work on their upcoming album as soon as feasible. Keenan did not appear to be happy with his bandmate’s choice to inform fans about Tool’s potential actions, though. The band’s future and potential releases were unclear, thus the singer chose to dispute Chancellor’s statement that an album was in the works: “Every time I say something aloud, it gets farther away, like in ‘Groundhog Day,’ so I never mention anything until we actually hold it in our hands.
” He went on to explain why the bassist’s recent disclosure on Tool’s whereabouts and upcoming projects was ‘irresponsible.’ “I think it’s irresponsible to get people worked up and excited about something that doesn’t exist.” With the release of the band’s most recent studio album, “Fear Inoculum,” in 2019, fans have become accustomed to having to wait for new material. Chancellor’s remarks regarding the album’s present status as “non-existent” may have come as a pleasant surprise to their fan base. Keenan, nevertheless, doesn’t appear eager to talk about Tool’s upcoming project since he thinks providing any updates could ‘jinx’ the project and excite fans for something that ‘doesn’t exist’ at the moment. In light of this, fans of Tool should cross their fingers for more updates.
