With a new A Perfect Circle on the way to go along with a tour, Maynard James Keenan has quite the year ahead of him. After countless teases, public spats, and false alarms, it’s officially time to get excited. Tool have entered the studio. A new album is on the way. This is confirmed by guitarist Adam Jones, who posted a studio clip to Instagram, declaring the start of “Day 1”!
Danny Carey recently told Loudwire that the band would “definitely” put out a new record this year. Reports then started surfacing from rockers like Tom Morello, Behemoth’s Nergal, Buzz Osborne of the Melvins and Sebastian Bach, who had confirmed they had heard the new music, adds the site. In January, Jones said the music was done and last month, Maynard James Keenan made it known that he had finished the lyrics to “all but one” of the songs, as he was waiting for the final version of that last track.
While getting a new album would be enough to satisfy us fans, could you imagine if Tool tours with A Perfect Circle?
