Tool fans still have some waiting to do.

Singer Maynard James Keenan has let it be known that the band’s long-awaited new album will not be released this summer.

Keenan made the point very clear in response to a fan claiming on Twitter that Tool was set to make a full-length comeback this summerciting recent revelations from various band members.

Keenan replied flatly to the fan’s post, saying the album is not coming out this summer.

It’s easy to understand the fan’s confidence. Tool guitarist Adam Jones shared that the music was “done,” while Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello revealed that he’d heard those instrumentals, calling them “epic and brutal.”

The exchange followed another fan's remarks about new Tool and A Perfect Circle releases allegedly coming soon. Keenan replied that only new APC was on the way.

So if there’s a consolation prize here for Tool’s legion of fans, it’s that there is indeed still a new A Perfect Circle album on the way.
