Maynard: New Tool Album is “Progressing Nicely”


It’s been almost 10 years since Tool gave fans its last studio album, 10,000 Days, but it appears that the tool-2015drought could be slowly drawing to an end.

Yesterday through the Puscifer Instagram account, Tool vocalist Maynard James Keenan posted a photo with his bandmates, along with the following caption:

“I’ve been making regular trips to LA to check on the writing progress of my Tool brethren. Things a 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. 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.”

During an interview last year with Rolling Stone, Tool guitarist Adam Jones explained that a lengthy legal battle has been a big reason why a new album has yet to be completed and released.
