It's been nearly 11 years since Tool put out their last album, 2006's 10,000 Days, and the wait continues for a follow-up. The band revealed in 2014 that they'd been battling a soul-sucking lawsuit regarding an insurance claim that had demoralized their creativity, but said they'd been jamming on some long, new songs. Then, in 2015, they debuted a new instrumental, dubbed "Descending," which guitarist Adam Jones told Rolling Stone was an excerpt of a new 14-minute-long tune. Toward the end of 2016, bassist Justin Chancellor told Bass Player that the band was "deep into the writing process" and that they'd narrowed down what they were working with to a group of ideas. "Everyone knows we take our time," he said. "We're really trying to be responsible with ourselves in trying to discover ideas that haven't been discovered before. It's kind of an alchemy, how we experiment."
