Tool’s Adam Jones Reveals
Album Details On Fear Inoculum
Tool’s guitarist Adam Jones said in an interview with Guitar World that the upcoming album Fear Inoculum, the band’s first album in 13 years, will be 80 minutes in run time through seven tracks. The album itself will revolve around the number seven as a concept.
Jones explained: “I took a picture pointing to the number seven while we were recording, and a lot of the riffs Justin and I brought in were in seven. You don’t really go, ‘I’m going to write a riff in seven!'” He continued, “Without being too descriptive about the concept, the main thing is that the seven beat just kept coming up, and riffs in seven kept coming up. It was really weird!
“Then Maynard told me about a whole concept he had about the number seven. We were all, like, ‘Oh my God! This is too weird!’ Then Alex Grey (Tool album artist) basically said the same thing and he has a concept that will reveal itself through video.” More info and a review on the new album will be coming.
