Tool’s Justin Chancellor premieres new song with MTVoid project

Lobal Orning Records

Tool bassist Justin Chancellor has premiered “Scanner Void,” a new song with his MTVoid side project, which also features Peter Mohamed of the Polish band Sweet Noise.

“Scanner Void” is available now via digital outlets. It’s first single off the duo’s next album, the sophomore follow-up to 2013’s Nothing’s Matter, which is due out later this summer.

“Peter and I really push each other,” Chancellor says. “My playing is a reaction to what he creates. He’ll hit me with a beat, and I’ll spend days recording to it — almost in stream of consciousness. I’ll respond to him, and I’m always excited at what he pulls out from my response. It’s all cause and effect.”

“There is a means to this end, though; we’re both trying to write a song we would like to listen to,” he adds. “There’s a genuine momentum to it.”

Chancellor recently got off the road with Tool touring behind their 2019 album, Fear Inoculum.
