Tool members Adam Jones and Danny Carey blame a lawsuit for the delay of their next album.
The band is being sued by a former associate who claims he never got credited when the band used his artwork for a project. Tool then got sued by an insurance company that they hired to help them deal with the first lawsuit.
The insurance company is suing over technicalities for the case.
Tool have since counter-sued the company and the case should be going to trial in January.
When it comes to music, Carey hopes to have the new album recorded by the end of the year. He said the band has enough ideas for a full length album and are close to finishing a new song that is about 10 minutes long.
The pint-sized heavy metal musicians who became a huge hit at Coachella have just signed a record contract that will make them the richest kids on their block.
The band — Unlocking the Truth — formed when the kids were just 10 and 11.
They were so good they were quickly booked on Amateur Night at the Apollo.
But they hit it big at the ripe old ages of 12 and 13 when they became the youngest group ever to perform on the main stage at Coachella.
Under the contract, they’ll get the following advances:
— $60,000 for the first album
— $325,000 for the second
— $400,000 for the third
— $450K for the fourth
— $550K for the fifth
If they sell enough records they’ll also get royalties.
