JUSTIN CHANCELLOR Provides Update On Progress Of TOOL’s Next Studio Album

Tool band

In his recent guesting on “The Vinyl Guide” podcast, TOOL bassist Justin Chancellor was asked about the progress on the successor to their 2019 album, Fear Inoculum.

“We’ve got many ideas cooking,” he responded. “We haven’t recorded anything yet. But we’re quite busy until — I guess until after the spring of next year touring. So once that’s done, we’re gonna get back in the studio and knuckle down and put some of it together. We’ve already had a few pretty decent sessions of writing. So we’ve got the ingredients in place. We’ve just gotta really bang it out and spend that time when we’re not touring.”

In response to whether there were any concepts or ideas from previous songwriting sessions that have not been officially released yet, Chancellor said: “Yeah, tons from the last album. We have tons of ideas, but not recorded to the standard we’d put on an album. Just kind of, I’d say, lots of demoed stuff. And then just tons of ideas just kind of stored away.”

TOOL‘s latest album, Fear Inoculum, was released on August 30, 2019, through Tool DissectionalVolcano Entertainment, and RCA Records. It is the band’s first album in 13 years, due to creative, personal, and legal issues band members encountered since the release of 10,000 Days.
