It’s been ten long years since Tool has officially released any new music, though a new album has been discussed for months by the band. Today, we have yet another glimpse inside this possible new release, though it comes from a friend of the band: Buzz Osborne. The Melvins frontman wrote a piece for Team Rock highlighting the Melvins’ best albums, and mentioned a bit of gossip that he heard from Tool’s own Adam Jones.According to Osborne, “Bands like Tool obviously spend about six months on their albums, and they’ve spent about ten years putting together the new one. And they haven’t even started recording yet, but Adam [Jones, Tool guitarist] told me the shortest song they’ve been working on is twelve minutes long.”Wow! Whatever Tool has in store, it seems like it will be truly worth the wait.[H/T Team Rock]
