Will Next Tool Album Take Another 13 Years? Drummer Danny Carey Answers

The PRP reports that during a recent interview with Kerrang, drummer Danny Carey of Tool was asked if the fans will have to wait another 13 years to get their hands on a new Tool record.

As widely reported, the group is gearing up to release its fifth studio album “Fear Inoculum” on August 30, marking the follow-up to 2006’s “10,000 Days.”

The drummer replied: “There hasn’t [been any discussions], but I don’t think there needs to because I’m not getting any younger. The drums need to be attacked in a certain manner for it to sound like Tool, so it’s going to have to happen much quicker on the next one. I hope we do another.”

Elsewhere in the conversation, Danny discussed the band’s reluctance to enter the digital sphere and get their music to streaming platforms until very recently, saying:

“I don’t mind the streaming thing. The one thing that’s disappointing to me is that it caters to that shorter attention span. I don’t think that leaves much room for people, like us, that want to release a bigger package of music that’s more like reading a book than listening to a commercial.

“This was written and composed to be an album, an experience you can dig into for 80 to 90 minutes. But I don’t know how many people are left out there in the world willing to do that. When I was a kid I bought records and played them from beginning to end. That’s what I grew up on, so that’s what I’m still doing.”
