TOOL has released a statement to RollingStone.com explaining how a misunderstanding between the band’s guitarist and a fan led to speculation that the group had completed its new studio album.

“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.”

Jones posted a message on his Twitter profile stating, “FYI, ‘The record’s done and it’s coming out tomorrow’ is what I said yesterday, followed by ‘just kidding. . . ‘”

TOOL kicked off its spring tour at Veterans Memorial Arena in Spokane, Washington on Tuesday (March 4) with a two-hour collection of fan favorites but not a single new tune in sight. According to RollingStone.com, the Los Angeles band opened its set with “Hooker With A Penis” and blasted through hits like “Vicarious”, “Schism” and “Jambi” before ending with the triple knockout of “Forty-Six & 2”, “Ænema” and “Stinkfist”.

The instrumental members of TOOL have acknowledged working on new music for a large portion of the past year, but have yet to give any sign that they are ready to hit “record.”

TOOL‘s last album, “10,000 Days”, came out in 2006. The band has toured a few times since then.

Keenan has kept himself busy with his Arizona wine-making business and his band PUSCIFER, along with doing some live work and a little new music with A PERFECT CIRCLE.

World Under Blood has released the official video for the track “Into the Arms of Cruelty,” which comes from the band’s 2011 debut outing on Nuclear Blast Records, “Tactical.” Guitarist/vocalist Deron Miller had the following to say about the video’s anti-child abuse stance:

“Violence towards children is an appalling, disgusting and unfortunately a rampant occurrence amongst millions of households.” states Deron Miller. “World Under Blood will always campaign to bring harsh reality straight to your senses, no matter how ugly and offensive, to bring awareness to its existence. Any misunderstanding that we condone any kind of despicable behavior like the variety found in this music video is false and idiotic.”

MyChildren MyBride has issued the following statement about not performing during the band’s previously schedule appearance at Heavenfest:

“To all our friends, fans, and supporters that came out to see us at Heavenfest this year, we’re deeply sorry you didn’t get to see us play! There was a huge misunderstanding, and miscommunication between the festival and our booking agency which made us miss our set time.

“Upon arrival at the festival we tried ALL DAY LONG to get them to let us play on any stage they could fit us on. The staff tried relentlessly, but unfortunately it just didn’t happen. We came, set up merch, got to see a lot of our friends bands play, and had an amazing time!

“Again… So sorry if you missed us! We can’t wait to play Heavenfest next year, I promise we won’t be late!”

MyChildren MyBride has also released a new music video for the song “God of Nothing,” which is available online at this location.

Radio Metal asked “You played with Dio’s solo band in the early ’80s, at what is considered its creative peak, but I know that you two were not very much on good terms. Is this something that you regret now, not to have had the time to make up with him before he died?”

Vivian Campbell replied: “No. Even when I was in the band with Ronnie [James Dio] back in the days, we never had a very strong relationship beyond music. That was what brought us together: we were on stage together, recording and writing songs… It was a very strange relationship between he and I. It was a lot of miscommunication, of misunderstanding and I think a lot of it was generational. Ronnie was a lot older than me and I found it very difficult to communicate with him and vice versa, I think he found it very difficult to communicate with me.”

“A lot of people have thought for years and years that I left the band, which is not true, I was fired. I never wanted to quit the DIO band. I didn’t have any reason to contact him again after he fired me. It had been 25 or so years since Ronnie had fired me from the band. I’ve never seen him again, I’ve never spoken to him again, he never contacted me. It is what it is. I’m very proud of the records that we recorded together, but you can’t go back. You gotta keep moving forward.”
