Tool Member Injured In Vespa Crash, Songwriting For New Album Delayed
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.30.2013



Loudwire reports that an unidentified member of Tool had serious injuries after crashing his Vespa scooter on icy roads. The band member has several broken ribs and a dislocated shoulder, which will delayed rehearsing and writing sessions meant for the band's fifth album.

Another anonymous member of the band is also in the hospital from a separate Vespa crash, with a head injury, cuts and bruises. However, both are recovering and the band is now back to work on the album.

They wrote on their official website:

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 that resulted in several broken ribs and a dislocated shoulder. Because of the physical nature of the musical instrument 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 sessions resumed last Monday (January 21), despite it being a holiday for many.

Coincidently (?), 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), I'm quite certain that if you were to order an "Entaphiosis" Hoddie, you would receive an "Entaphiosis" Hoodie.

Several days ago members of the press (from different magazines) conducted interviews with band members about upcoming events, and I would imagine that these writers, etc. also inquired as to how things were progressing with regards to the band's next record. So, there's something to look forward to reading, and I will certainly try to give updates as to when these publications hit the newsstands.

I was hoping to be able to throw some of you a bone the first week of the New Year, but for certain reasons this announcement has been pushed back a month. Therefore, look for a news post that will be exciting to some towards the end of the first week in February.


Meanwhile, Maynard James Keenan's side project Puscifer will release their latest EP, Donkey Punch the Night, on February 19.
