SiriusXM host/curator Jose Mangin released the recent podcast and he revealed the Tool’s new album’s release date for the first time.

Jose Mangin stated that he asked an -unknown- Tool employee the exact time the band release the new album. According to that employee, Tool will release the new album in July.

Recently, Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan had a recent Twitter conversation with a fan and defended his bandmates against him. Keenan responded to a claim that Puscifer is not a band. A fan said ‘I wouldn’t really call Puscifer a band’, and Maynard reacted harshly.

Here is the conversation between those two…


“Perhaps this is an unpopular opinion, but  is one of the most and best psychedelic bands of this era.”

Whitley commented:

“I wouldn’t really call Puscifer a band. It seems to be one man and hired guns. Not a collaboration of musical ideas.”

And then Maynard chimed in:

“Mat Mitchell is a stand alone force of nature. A true talent. And an essential core of Puscifer writing, engineering, producing, and mixing. Since 2006.

Carina Round completes that trinity. Collaborating with us since 2009.Collaborative writing process starting w Mat Mitchell. A Band.”
