Tool are making progress on their new album, says frontman Maynard James Keenan
Last month, Tool posted an update on their official website stating that writing and recording for the group’s highly-anticipated upcoming album was under way. Specifically, the post stated that guitarist Adam Jones had finished the end of a song and was pleased with how things were going for the band.
Now, Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan has issued an update on the group’s next album. This is big news, since Keenan has been largely silent about the new tunes from the band. In the statement, Keenan explained that although he hasn’t recorded any vocals for the new album, he’s been regularly making the trip to Tool’s rehearsal space in Los Angeles and will start writing the vocal lines soon.
“I’ve been making regular trips to LA to check on the writing progress of my Tool brethren,” Keenan said in the statement. “Things are progressing nicely. Slowly, but definitely progressing. Nothing is recorded yet, but the guys are confident that the pieces are coming together swimmingly and will be ready for me to begin writing melodies and content ‘soon.’”
Keenan added that he’s “as anxious to get this album completed as everyone else. But as history will show, you can’t rush these gents. Patience is Gold in this Sound Mine. In the meantime, as always, other things are simultaneously occurring. Life is too short not to create something with every breath we draw.”
