Tool's Justin Chancellor

Justin Chancellor Has Been Writing New Tool Riffs, Plans To Work With Peter Murphy & Victor Wooten


Bass Magazine recently caught up with Tool bassist Justin Chancellor to see how he has been spending his downtime during the ongoing COVID-19 downtime. In addition to gardening, working out and listening to Gojira, among others, he went on to reveal that he has been working on a number of projects.

Likely the one that will earn the most attention is the revelation that he has been compiling some new riffs for Tool. Speaking of what he has going on, he stated:

“I’m working on tracks for a second M.T.Void album/EP with Peter Mohamed, who is in Poland. It looks like it will have some cool guest contributions. I’ve been adding bass lines to a project headed by Canadian director Jimmy Hayward, as well as bouncing some ideas around with BauhausPeter Murphy.

After taking part in a Berklee Bass Department webinar recently, I’ve been invited to contribute to Steve Bailey and Victor Wooten’s upcoming Bass Extremes record. And last, but not least, I’ve written some interesting riffs which will be reserved for Tool!”

Just this past April, Tool‘s drummer Danny Carey expressed his hopes that the band could write material for a potential EP during their unexpected downtime this year in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. For now, you can dig into how Chancellor has been busying himself further over at this location.
