Maynard James Keenan provides update on Tool album

Tool vocalist Maynard James Keenan has provided an update on the status of the band’s forthcoming, highly anticipated new effort. The frontman issued the following statement alongside the image below via Puscifer’s Instagram account:

“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.”
