Hear Tool's Danny Carey and Justin Chancellor Guest on New Author & Punisher Songs

Prog-metal virtuosos join industrial-metal mad scientist on latest album 'Krüller'

Author & Punisher's new album, Krüller, finally dropped today (February 11th), which means that in addition to taking in the man-machine project's latest slab of otherworldly industrial metal, listeners can also revel in the peerless playing of Tool's rhythm section, drummer Danny Carey and bassist Justin Chancellor, who each guest on separate cuts on the LP.

Tool handpicked Author & Punisher — A.K.A. musician and mechanical engineer Tristan Shone — to tour with them in 2020, and clearly, their fandom has not faded since then, as Carey and Chancellor's features testify. The drummer appears on the clattering, concussive "Misery," while the bass player contributed to the more droning and doomy "Centurion." Blast the tracks above and below, respectively.

On top of the new album, Shone is also launching a bespoke audio gear company called Drone Machines to coincide with the release of Krüller, and he'll hit the road shortly for extensive dates throughout the spring and fall — scroll down for the full itinerary.
