Report | New Tool Album Ready For Release

UPDATE 3/7 11 a.m. PT: We mentioned we were a little hesitant to believe a fan report and it seems as if we had good reason. If you read through the comments attached to Maynard Keenan's latest Instagram posting, you'll see he responds to a fan who mentions the report about the album with, "Joke. Pure Joke. Not even close to done."

The guitarist who made the comment also says it was a joke:

Psych-metal act Tool is two shows into a tour that has seen the band fill setlists with older material, despite having a new album in the works. So what's up with the new album, which would be the group's first since 2006's 10,000 Days? Well, according to Crave Online, guitarist Adam Jones told a fan at a VIP meet-and-greet that the LP is "100% done" and should be released later this year.

The only other information Crave Online reports about the album is that it contains material with "different time signatures than their previous work." We do warn that the information in the publication's report comes via a fan, not directly from Jones.

Last night Tool performed at the Moda Center in Portland, OR. The only change from Tuesday's night show is that the group opened with "Third Eye" in Portland as opposed to the "Hooker With A Penis" opener in Spokane.

Here's the setlist from last night's show:
