Hear Tool’s Maynard James Keenan Sing A Plea To His Bandmates To Finish Their New Album


Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan jokingly pleaded with his bandmates to finish their parts on the group’s long-awaited new album while onstage at the ‘Northern Invasion‘ festival in Somerset, WI this past Sunday, May 13th. Keenan was once again donned in his full riot gear attire during the set and stated the following in rhythmic fashion while backed by the band (see video below):

“A lot of people recently have been asking me, Maynard James Keenan, what’s with the fucking riot gear? Well, I’ll tell you. I’m afraid of bananas, and other forms of fruit, because eventually you wonderful people are going to run out of fucking patience. So I beg you – Danny, Adam, and Justin, please finish your parts so I can finish mine and take this fucking riot gear off.”

Thus far the drums have been tracked for the effort with the band to resume the sessions following their current brief run of shows and clinics. In other news, those who’ve attended the initial stops of the band’s series of pricey music clinic appearances have shared some of the memorabilia and artifacts on display at the stops via Reddit.
