Last week, Maynard James Keenan offered an update on Tool’s new album, stating that “words and melodies 100% done,” with the exception of one song. Now guitarist Adam Jones has added that the plan to begin recording the long awaited album will begin in March. Jones revealed the news in response to an Instagram photo from Sebastian Bach, who had recently visited the studio along with Buzz Osborne and had previewed some of the new music. Jones stated in response: “Huge fun & honor performing all the new tunes for Guinea pigs Sebastian & #KingBuzz b4 the recording starts in March. Still instrumentals with Mjk in town work on killer lyrics. Exciting.” Tool’s last album, 10,000 Days, was released in 2006. In the meantime, the band’s members have taken part in other projects. And back in 2014, Danny Carey and Adam Jones revealed that an ongoing lawsuit had delayed the start of a new album. Once that suit was settled in 2015, Tool have toured intermittently over the last couple of years.
