We may not have concrete information about the new Tool album, but we do have some Maynard James Keenan news. The Tool / Puscifer / A Perfect Circle singer will release his official bipgraphy mid-2016 in collaboration with author and friend Sarah Jensen. From Rolling Stone:
“Most people want to hear the kiss-and-tell crap, the garbage on the bus. That’s boring to me. ‘We threw a piano out a window.’ That’s been done a million times before even Buddy Rich was around.
“The ones I prefer are when they get more into the psychology and the decision-making process. Not who you know and ‘then I met the president.’ – those are boring. I’m more interested in crossroads, where they make a decision and you see the cause-and-effect process of those decisions.”
Although Tool bandmates Adam Jones & Danny Carey told Rolling Stone that music has been written for the new Tool record, when Keenan was asked to comment:
“Do I seem like a lazy person to you? They’re working hard in their own way, I’m working hard in my own way, and I’ve got nothing for you.”
