Tool’s Maynard James Keenan: New Music in 2019 @ Golden Gods – Icon Award – VIDEO – New Album

Maynard Keenan took home Metal Hammer’s Icon Award at last night’s Golden Gods’ ceremony.  During the speech the Tool frontman said, “I’ll go on record now and say you’re going to see some new music next year.” Tool has not released a studio album since 2006’s 10,000 Days.

The award was presented to Keenan by Daniel P. Carter, host of BBC Radio 1’s Rock Show, recognizing a lifetime of contributions to heavy music, with past lifetime achievement winners, including Black Sabbath, Judas Priest and Lemmy Kilmister.  Keenan was celebrated for his work with his trio of bands: A Perfect Circle, Puscifer and Tool.
