Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan has finally weighed in with some information regarding the band's forthcoming album, the progress of which has fueled intense speculation for months. Notably, Keenan says that "nothing is recorded yet," but he will soon be ready to begin writing vocal melodies for the outing. Here's what he had to say this evening:
"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."
