In a recent interview with the Cleveland Scene, Tool drummer Danny Carey said that fans won’t have to wait as long as long as 13 years to hear new music from the band. That 13 years is in regards to how long of a gap there was between the Tool album 10,000 Days from 2006, and the 2019 Tool album Fear Inoculum.

In the interview with the Cleveland Scene, Tool drummer Danny Carey shared the following:

“It was frustrating not having new material to play, but that time really flew by quickly,” he said. “I guess that’s just the nature of life. It’s like when you have kids, and they’re grown up, and you go, ‘What happened?’ It took a long time, but we did a lot of touring and tried to grow in different ways and take a break from each other to keep things fresh. We also wanted to bring in outside influences, so we would have something new to say to each other musically. It all came together really well on this one. I’m sure it won’t take us this long for the next one. We even had some stuff left over from the last one that we’ll develop. We have head starts on three or four new songs.”

Tool drummer Danny Carey also shared that the band have a live DVD in the works that will be “a good mind blower for all the hardcore fans.” He explained: “Most of it will be from the ‘Lateralus’ tour from 2002.”

Besides the studio release of Fear Inoculum, Tool has recently released a special ultra-deluxe vinyl pressing of that record, as well as a special 30th anniversary release of their 1992 EP Opiate.

While we wait on that new Tool album and Lateralus DVD, check out the video below that features the infamous risqué performance Tool put on at this Scientology Centre.
