Listen to Tool on iHeartRadio

It turns out Tool fans will have to wait a little longer for the band's long-awaited new album. 

Word that guitarist Adam Jones had said the follow-up to 2006's 10,000 Days was "100-percent done" began making its way around the Internet late last week.  But Jones has since taken to Twitter to explain that the comment was just an off-the-cuff joke. 

It was apparently made in a private conversation with fans at Tool's recent concert in Portland, Oregon. 

The band has released an official statement saying that work on the new album is ongoing, and they promise that they'll be the first to let everyone know as soon as it's finished.
