We have been waiting for the new album of the American alternative metal band Tool for 10 years. The band’s latest album “10,000 Days” was released in 2006.

Bass guitarist Justin Chancellor talked in an interview with Bass Player Magazine and explained about the process of recording the new album. He said:

We’re pretty deep into the writing process now, and we’ve narrowed things down to big groups of ideas. For the past few months we’ve been working on one of the newer songs fairly exclusively. We get the gist of it and find the main themes that make up the skeleton between verses and choruses.

Then we explore different ways we can depart from that and come back to it and flip it upside down, and take the time to see what else is there. Everyone knows we take our time. We’re really trying to be responsible with ourselves in trying to discover ideas that haven’t been discovered before. It’s kind of an alchemy, how we experiment.”


In the remainder of the interview, he talks about months of struggling for a single song. The whole interview contains a lot of information about Tool’s new upcoming album.
