Tool’s Maynard James Keenan Reveals ‘Music Is Happening on All Fronts’

We don’t like to mess with metalheads and their emotions when it comes to new Tool music, since frontman Maynard James Keenan effectively does that job for us. He likes to keep fans on their toes and recently added a whole mess of confusion to the reported Tool new music timelines. However, we have some great news to share and it comes courtesy of Keenan.

The singer issued an update to accompany his 666th Instagram photo, which is obviously a very metallic number. In the caption, Keenan namechecks, er, hashtags that there will be new Tool music in 2014.

Here is his caption, and it’s coming straight from the horse’s mouth: “For my 666th IG photo, I’d just like to say … Music is happening on ALL fronts. Always. #lightenupfrancis#shitupandletmework #tool2014 @aperfectcircle @tool@puscifer.” See the photo, which is creepy-cool and delightyfully weird, in typical MJK fashion, here.

Notice there could be TONS of good news interpreted in the space of a few sentences. Beyond new Tool music, he is also working on Puscifer and A Perfect Circle, as well. We think. He mentions those other projects, as well, so we are, as always, intrigued. While concrete details were withheld, at least we have something to cling to and to look forward to.
