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…

αmirTBO:

“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.”
