There was a point in time not too long ago where it looked like new albums from both Tool and A Perfect Circle would be arriving in 2017. Sadly, that no longer appears to be the case, as A Perfect Circle recently revealed via Twitter.

When a fan tweeted to APC expressing his excitement over the potential of a new album arriving later this year, the band’s Twitter account responded with a simple, “Not true.” This prompted another fan to ask if Tool’s new album would finally land in 2017, to which APC responded, “Also not true.”

Reached for comment, a representative for both Tool and A Perfect Circle confirmed the tweets. “That is the official APC account so you can feel free to quote it,” the representative noted.

Thus far in 2017, frontman Maynard James Keenan has split his time between Tool and A Perfect Circle. The latter band recently concluded their first tour in six years, during which they debuted a pair of new songs. Guitarist Billy Howerdel subsequently confirmed that the band was working on a new album, their first in 13 years, and “if all goes [according] to plan, we should see it in 2017.” In anticipation of the album’s release, APC signed a new worldwide record deal with BMG.

As for Tool, the band has been working on the long-awaited follow-up to 2006’s 10,000 Days for the last several years. Earlier this year, Keenan was said to have joined his bandmates in the studio to add vocals to the album. It was also reported that the band had entered negotiations with streaming services to finally make their back catalog available in anticipation of their new album’s release. Later this month, they’re set to embark on a North American tour which includes headlining appearances at Boston Calling and NYC’s Governors Ball Music Festival.
