The 12th anniversary of the release of Tool‘s 2006 studio album 10,000 Days has come and gone and the metal act still haven’t issued a follow-up. Frontman Maynard James Keenan was in London on Monday night, where he received Metal Hammer’s Icon Award at the Golden Gods’ ceremony. Maynard told the crowd new music is coming next year as part of his acceptance speech and fans are hopeful he was talking about Tool.

“A lot of work’s being done, a lot work’s been done … I’ll go on record now as saying you’re gonna see some new music next year,” Keenan said to the audience at London’s The 02. Tool shared an update from the studio on Facebook one day earlier featuring a picture of Justin Chancellor’s bass rig. “JUSTIN’S bass setup in the studio. Sounds like he is making great progress recording in ‘a great studio,'” reads the caption for the photo.

Back in April, Tool shared a preview of the new song “Descending” and late last month Keenan told the crowd at Rock On The Range, “We fear the end of your patience” during the band’s set at the festival. While there are no future Tool dates confirmed at this time, Maynard James Keenan will keep busy with A Perfect Circle including a fall headlining tour.
