The metal band, Tool, has announced that they’ve delayed work on their new album after two of the band members were involved in separate scooter crashes.
The follow-up to their 2006 album, 10,000 Days, has been stopped to allow these individuals, who remain unnamed, time to recover.
Tool released a statement via their website which read, “The New Year started off on a bad note as far as writing and arranging sessions for Tool’s next record. For the most part this was due to a ‘minor’ accident on a Vespa scooter (slick road conditions being the cause) by a certain band member resulting in several broken ribs and a dislocated shoulder.”
They then went on to add, “Because of the physical nature of the musical involvement involved, 9 DAYS of jamming were lost, although I’m happy to report that the person involved is recovering nicely, so much so, in fact, that writing session resumed last Monday January 21, despite it being a holiday for many.”
Tool concluded their message by noting, “Coincidentally, a few days prior to the mishap on the scooter, another person involved with Tool also wound up in the hospital after crashing his Vespa in Hollywood. Although he suffered a head injury (as well as multiple cuts and bruises to his body).”
Tool then went on to add that they hope to release more information in the next month over the progress of their new album.
Earlier this week, Tool’s guitarist decided to propose to his girlfriend at the World Wrestling Federation’s latest pay-per view, The Royal Rumble.
