Tool fans have been waiting 7 long years for a new album and will finally get a new one in early 2014, drummer Danny Carey has revealed.

Carey is currently working on new music in Los Angeles with guitarist Adam Jones and bassist Justin Chancellor. Singer James Keenan will join soon.

“It’s still the three of us right now… just working on all our parts and working on our compositions together,” Carey tells Loudwire. “Stylistically, we’re trying to push things in different ways, but it always comes out sounding like Tool no matter what we’re trying to do. We’re working everyday on it and it’s going really well, so I’m hoping we’ll get into the studio by the end of the year.”

A release in late 2013 was doubtful, Carey added.

“Right now, since we haven’t started tracking stuff at this point, it’ll be hard,” he said. “We could have the record finished by the end of the year — that’s a possibility, but the logistics of getting it manufactured and getting the record company in line and all this stuff, I doubt we’ll be able to get it out before Christmas. We’ll see how it goes. Most likely, it’ll be early 2014.”
