According to Blabbermouth.net, Tool are apparently writing another album to be released this year. This is what their lead guitarist Adam Jones said:
"It's been coming along... great! [laughs] No, we've been on hiatus. I'm writing and [bassist] Justin [Chancellor]'s been writing, but [frontman] Maynard [James Keenan] has been working on his wine. We've all just been taking some time away from each other, which has been nice. I've also been working on producing some comics."
Let's hope we won't wait another five years for this album to arrive because I'm already anticipating it and expecting it to be released soon.
