So there WON’T be a new Tool album in April? That’s what Maynard says

Despite a comment by drummer Danny Carey that a new Tool album would be out in April and some weird bio mechanical teasers on the band’s website, Maynard James Keenan is poo-pooing the whole notion.

A fan asked Maynard on Twitter if the idea of an April release was true. The answer was short and unambiguous.

Oh. I see.

I’d been hoping for a release date of April 28, which would be 13 years to the day since 10,000 Days appeared in stores. Then again, that’s just one date that turns up with a Google search. Some sources say the actual release date was May 2, 2006.

May 2 isn’t in April. And although that’s a Thursday–albums tend to come out on Friday–there’s nothing that says Tool will adhere to that industry convention.

Keep in mind, too, that Tool’s run of summer festival dates begins on May 5, in Jacksonville, Florida.

Standing by, guys…
