Tool’s First New Album Since 2006 Is Recorded And Being Mixed, Says Maynard James Keenan

first_imgOver the past few years, news about a new Tool album—what would be their first LP since 2006’s 10,000 Days—has periodically made its way through the Internet grapevine. Now, according to a Friday tweet from frontman Maynard James Keenan, it appears that the elusive new Tool record is close to completion. As Keenan notes, the vocals are tracked, and they are now in the process of mixing the album. You can see the tweet below: At times discouraging, at other times encouraging, progress on the new Tool release has been inching along for some time. Plans became more concrete when Keenan revealed plans last year to reunite with his bandmates in the studio to record music he’d been working on. At that point in February of 2018, he had finished writing the words and melodies to all but one of the new tracks, according to Consequence of Sound. Then, guitarist Adam Jones chimed in that recording of the new album would happen in March.As March 2018 went on, Jones posted a short video clip from a studio on Instagram with the caption, “Day 1.” Later, Jones posted a photo that confirms audio engineer “Immortan Evil Joe Barresi,” who mixed Tool’s 10,000 Days, as the man behind the console for the recording session. Marking the first new music since that 2006 album, Jones joked in the post: “Our first choice was Phil Spector – but he has other conflicting work obligations.”Tool has also been announced on a number of festival lineups for 2019. For a full list of upcoming Tool dates, head to their website here.With Keenan’s new update, we’re feeling pretty confident about the prospect of new Tool in 2019.[H/T AV Club]last_img read more
