Tool has been forced to issue a statement in regards to a misunderstanding between Tool guitarist Adam Jones and a fan during a meet and greet: "Last
night, Adam Jones, in a private conversation with fans attending the Portland Tool concert, joked that the band's new album was not only finished but
coming out the next day," the statement reads. "Unfortunately, his off-the-cuff joke was taken out of context. Work on the forthcoming album is ongoing and
as soon as it is done, trust me, we will be the first to let everyone know."
