Maynard James Keenan Says New Tool Album Is “Progressing Nicely”
Credit: Tim CadienteEarlier this month, Tool guitarist Adam Jones revealed that the band was in the studio “working on some tunes.” Now, frontman Maynard James Keenan has given an update on said tunes.
“I’ve been making regular trips to LA to check on the writing progress of my Tool brethren,” Keenan writes on Tool’s Facebook page. “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.'”
“I’m as anxious to get this album completed as everyone else,” Keenan continues. “But as history will show, you can’t rush these gents.”
Tool’s last album, 10,000 Days, was released nine years ago. The record contained two Grammy-nominated singles — “The Pot” and “Vicarious.”
