Tool Begin Work on New Record

Published: 2004-11-18
It's been three long years since Tool's last full-length album, but that's about to change soon. The members of the heavy metal band recently found their way back to the studio, and are currently recording the follow-up to 'Lateralus'. While it's too early for a concrete release date, the new album is expected to be finished for a 2005 release.

Put out in the spring of 2001, 'Lateralus' was Tool's fifth album since the band formed in 1990. Since there was a five-year gap between the last two Tool records, rumours of a break-up followed the rockers around for the last half of the '90s. The album which predates 'Lateralus' by half a decade is called 'Salival', and was released in the fall of 1996. Tool's smash debut full-length was christened 'Undertow' (released 1993), and before that the 'Opiate' EP pushed Tool into the alternative rock spotlight in 1992.

For those who can't wait until 2005 for a Tool fix, there's always the option of Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan's other project. While the music A Perfect Circle creates is more accessible than Tool's, the band still resides on the heavy side of rock. Earlier this month A Perfect Circle released their third full-length album 'emotive' to voice their anti-war sentiments through song.
