It’s official! TOOL axeman Adam Jones has announced that they will finally begin recording their new album with Maynard James Keenan in April.
Here’s what Jones wrote on Instagram, “Huge fun & honor performing all the new tunes for Guinea pigs Sebastian & #KingBuzz b4 the recording starts in April. Still instrumentals with Mjk in town working on killer lyrics. Exciting!”
Earlier this year, Jones wrote that Keenan was ‘coming in hard’ with lyrics and melodies after Tool sent him completed musical tracks.
Maynard James Keenan also offered a major update on the new album on Friday night on Twitter.
“Started getting music files from the boys w the word FINAL in the title a few months ago after 11 years of begging. That in theory means the tracks wont change out from under me while I’m trying to write stories and melodies to them. In theory. Still waiting for the FINAL on 1.”
Keenan has a busy year ahead, with A Perfect Circle releasing a new album, and now possibly Tool.
…but way ahead. Words & Melodies 100% DONE on all but 1. Someday we’ll track them. Long way from the finish line, but at least we’re closer. Meanwhile new @aperfectcircle release on 4/20. #whileyouwerewhiningiwasworking #theresyourupdate #eattheelephant #aperfectcircle2018″
