Tool fans have waited a very long time for the band to finish their new album and frontman Maynard James Keenan addressed that desire during a recent music festival, calling on his bandmates to complete their parts so he can finish his and deliver the effort.
Keenan made the comments during his band Puscifer’s set at Northern Invasion in Somerset and tied it into his stage outfit of riot gear. He explained the getup to the crowd saying, "A lot of people recently have been asking me, 'Maynard James Keenan, what's with the f***ing riot gear?' Well, I'll tell you. I'm afraid of bananas and other forms of fruit, because eventually you wonderful people are going to run out of f***ing patience.
So I beg you, Danny, Adam, and Justin, please finish your parts so I can finish mine and take this f***ing riot gear off."
He’s referring to the fact that Tool has been (allegedly) working on the follow up to their 2006 album “10,000 Days” and the other members of the band have been dragging their feet.
