Prog-metal band Tool is in the studio, and ‘all systems are a go’

Don’t fret, Tool fans, the Maynard James Keenan-fronted band is in the studio. In an official statement posted to the band’s website on Saturday (March 10), the mysterious progressive metal band announced that the “recording process” for their upcoming, much-anticipated new studio album is “about to begin in earnest.” The statement adds, “Pinch yourself if you want, but I have been told that all systems are go at this point for the upcoming sessions.”

“We are very excited to announce what is sure to be welcome news for both fans of Tool and prog-metal enthusiasts in general,” the band wrote in the statement. “After all the years of writing and arranging (and re-arranging) at the band’s loft, I can at this time officially report that the guys have moved into a major studio where the recording process for the next album is about to begin in earnest.”

The statement continues, “For the past few days the band members have been getting sonically adjusted to their new surroundings – dialing in the equipment settings and restaurant catering choices – in preparation for Danny to begin his tracking any time now – perhaps by the time that you read this!”

The messages adds that the band, “will be posting periodic bits and pieces on the progress of the tracking once the guys get deeper into the recording process” and to check back to the official website for the updates.

Tool also explained that producer Joe Barresi will engineer the upcoming album. Whenever it arrives, the new set will mark the band’s follow-up to 2006’s “10,000 Days.”
