Tool Continue Writing New Album: Possibly Playing Ozzfest In 2013?

According to their November Newsletter, Tool members Adam Jones, Justin Chancellor, and Danny Carey will be continuing the writing process for their fifth full-length studio album, which is as-of-yet-untitled and also has no concrete release date. This album will be the follow-up to 2006’s 10,000 Days.

There is also a rumor going around the web that Tool will be playing Day 2 of Ozzfest Japan in May, 2013. Confirmed to be on the package is Slash, Deftones, and Slipknot (who will be headlining Day 1), and Stone Sour, and Black Sabbath (who are headlining Day 2). This rumor comes from a website entitled Ozzfest Japan but the Tool newsletter seems rather dubious, stating that they, “…have NOT been told that this is confirmed,” and that they, “…have NOT received anything that could be considered official about any shows.”

While it’s exciting to think that Tool will be releasing a new album and hitting the road, I find it best to not hold my breath and just be patient. It’s almost always worth it.

    They confirmed the ozzfest date in Japan on ther website this afternoon and while i patiently wait for the new album i just hope it comes before mother decides to flush it all away… 😉

      I saw the website post and it’s actually a bit confusing. In the November newsletter, Blair talks about the poster and makes a point about how nobody has actually held it and it’s only digital. Now he posts the poster itself without stating 100% clearly whether or not the band is performing there. Is the post confirming the date or is it just showing the poster? That’s what is throwing me off.

        Yea they seem to like being cryptic about everything. I just fugured the post was confirming it since the headline right above the poster was “tool performing at ozzfest japan” all in capital letters then it said here’s the poster either way i would much rather have them come to seattle
