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

Late HRs from Kike’ Hernandez and Justin Turner lift Dodgers past Diamondbacks

first_img Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Greinke bunted the runner over. Nothing came of it. And he went out to pitch the eighth, facing the heart of the Dodgers’ lineup for the fourth time in the game. Greinke had faced a batter four times in a game just four times previously all season.Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter. Be the best Dodger fan you can be by getting daily intel on your favorite team. Subscribe here.“I thought it was interesting when he went back out there to sacrifice bunt instead of pinch-hitting for him to try and get some more (runs),” Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner said. “But who knows why stuff happens? You just roll with it.”Stuff happened on the first pitch of the eighth inning when Turner crushed a hanging slider from Greinke into the left-field pavilion for the decisive run in a 3-2 Dodgers victory over the Diamondbacks.The turnaround took the Dodgers from a potential two-game losing streak that would have left them three games behind the Diamondbacks in the division, facing an uphill battle just to salvage a split of this four-game series.Instead, the Dodgers could find themselves in first place Monday with wins the next two days.

(AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill)ExpandLOS ANGELES — For the first time since 2012, September arrived with a team other than the Dodgers occupying first place in the National League West.If the Dodgers are going to reclaim the top spot and win a sixth consecutive division title, a sacrifice bunt by an opposing pitcher might figure prominently.Arizona Diamondbacks starter Zack Greinke gave up a game-tying home run to Kike’ Hernandez in the bottom of the seventh inning Friday, “one of the biggest hits of the year,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said later.In the top of the eighth, Greinke’s spot in the batting order came up with one out and a man on first. And Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo let him hit. Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco “It’s easy to sit right now and say, knowing what the results are, that we would do it differently. Of course, I would have done it differently had I known what the outcome was. I just felt like I was doing the best thing for the matchups the next inning against the two guys. Zack has done that time and time again as indicated by his track record, so I felt like he was going to get through it.”The go-ahead homer set up another critical turnaround for the Dodgers. Jansen came on in the ninth to close it out and pitched a scoreless inning for the first time since being treated for atrial fibrillation.It wasn’t easy. Jansen gave up a bloop double to Goldschmidt with one out then struck out David Peralta and got Eduardo Escobar to ground out, stranding the tying run in scoring position.Jansen had vowed to “figure it out” after a rough outing in Texas earlier this week and he said he and pitching coach Rick Honeycutt did just that. Honeycutt had Jansen watch video from his past two seasons, showing Jansen a difference in his stride toward the plate this year.“They got a pissed-off Kenley today,” Jansen said. “I was throwing with my lower body. I focused on my lower body and let it carry me to home plate.” “With Kersh and Buehler,” Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen said of the Dodgers’ starting pitchers the next two days, “I like our chances.”Those chances did not look good through six innings Friday.At that point, the Dodgers had scored just two runs in the first 15 innings of this crucial series and trailed 2-1 thanks to a two-run home run by Paul Goldschmidt in the first inning. Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu was impressive after that. But, like Rich Hill in Thursday’s game, it looked like one mistake would cost him.Hernandez changed that with his seventh-inning home run, the major-league high seventh home run by a Dodgers pinch-hitter this season.“I think I was more excited for Kike’s home run,” Turner said, comparing it to his own heroics. “Pinch-hitting against him (Greinke) and hitting a two-strike, opposite-field homer is pretty impressive. That got everybody pretty fired up.”The Diamondbacks put the go-ahead run on in the eighth when reliever Dylan Floro flubbed a ground ball near the mound. Lovullo opted not to pinch-hit for light-hitting catcher Jeff Mathis, who struck out. And he didn’t pinch-hit for Greinke either.“I felt like he was throwing the ball extremely well and he deserved that opportunity to go out there and face those two right-handed hitters,” Lovullo said, referring to Turner and Manny Machado. “I liked those matchups. He had handled them well. It seemed like he was strong and feeling good and I was comfortable with what the pitches looked like.”Greinke had actually retired Turner just once – on a hard line drive to the third baseman. Turner singled his next time up and Greinke hit him with a pitch in their third meeting of the night.The fourth decided the game.“He’s our guy,” Lovullo said. “He’s been our catalyst on the mound. We rely on him. He hasn’t let us down. The last two years he’s been fantastic. He’s having a tremendous year.Related Articles Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season last_img read more
