Tool guitarist Adam Jones has posted an update for fans who have been impatiently waiting for the release of the band’s first studio album in six years.
Jones took to Facebook to address the concerns of many Tool fans: “To those of you who demand a new album from Tool: would you rather get something mediocre now, or something impressive later?”
In a follow up post, Jones wrote: “Truth is, we don’t write for you, we write for us. But we don’t share for us, we share for you.”
Tool’s last album, ’10,000 Days’ was released in 2006 and reached No. 1 on the Billboard top 200 charts. By the end of 2007, the Grammy award winning album had sold more than 2.75 million copies and had received a Platinum certification by the RIAA.
