Google Mistakes Tool for Rapper, Sends Fans Wrong Album Release Alert

 

Close

On Monday, July 16, Google stirred fans when it announced that the rock band Tool has released a new album.

Google Mistakes Tool For TOOL$

It has been quite some time since Maynard James Keenan and his crew came out with new music. Their last album was 10,000 Days released back in 2006.

The announcement by Google News this week was a delightful surprise then to fans who have been waiting for a very long time for Tool's return, except that there was no new album.

The news alert was actually for a SoundCloud rapper named TOOL$ and the album was titled IllutionWorld. Some of the songs included are "Illution," "Chillin&emo," "Tosis," and more.

Understandably, fans were quite upset about getting the notification.

Maynard James Keenan Talks New Album

Fans, however, should feel reassured that new music is indeed coming from Tool, but they might have to wait longer to hear it. Keenan announced earlier this year that the band is working on their next album over a decade after 10,000 Days.

"A lot of work's being done, a lot of work's been done," the singer-songwriter said last month when he accepted his Icon Award at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods in London. "I'll go on record now saying you're gonna see some new music next year."

Not much is known about the new album, but plenty has been said about it. Guitarist Adam Jones, drummer Danny Carey, and bassist Justin Chancellor have also spoken about their still-untitled next project. They revealed at a musical clinic in Minnesota a few months ago that each song is around 10 minutes each.

In December, Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine assured fans that the wait will be worth it because the next Tool album would be true to their sound.

"Had the honor of being the first outsider to hear new #TOOL music today," he wrote on a post on Instagram. "Still just instrumentals but sounded epic, majestic, symphonic, brutal, beautiful, tribal, mysterious, deep, sexy and VERY Tool."
