As of today (March 1, 2018), it’s been 11 years, 10 months and one day since Tool last released a new album. After years of wondering if they’d ever see a fifth record from the band, singer Maynard James Keenan tweeted out a couple of messages saying that the music was almost finished and that work was progressing well.

Then there was this encouraging Facebook post.
There was also word that other musicians had been invited into the studio to hear works in progress.
Great, right. But should we be concerned that Maynard has deleted his tweets about the album? Or are we just being paranoid?
