Back in December, drummer Danny Carey promised that there would “definitely” be a Tool album in 2018. Earlier this month, the wife of guitarist Adam Jones said the album was going well. And Tom Morello, one of the most honest men in music, claims to have heard material from the record, calling it amazing.
Now this: an Instagram livestream from Adam Jones saying that the “music is done” and “lyrics [are] coming in hard.”
