TOOL And A PERFECT CIRCLE Albums Underway, Says Singer

According to The Pulse of Radio, TOOL frontman Maynard James Keenan told on Thursday (June 10) that the band is "quietly working" on a new album that will be released "when it's ready." Asked if the group might possibly test out some new songs on the road this summer, Keenan said, "If it comes together, yeah, you'll hear some new stuff. If it's not ready, you won't." The band's summer trek kicks off on June 19 in New Orleans.

Keenan hinted that the tour might include some new visuals, although he also joked, "Maybe I'll just come out in my birthday suit. A 46-year-old naked dude running around onstage. Let's see how that goes over."

The singer, who's been working with side band PUSCIFER and tending to his vineyards for the last couple of years, also said that a fourth album from his other act, A PERFECT CIRCLE, is in the early stages, explaining, "We've got some riffs and some music. It's just basically playing it over and over again while driving and waiting for things to fall into place."

TOOL's last album was 2006's "10,000 Days", while A PERFECT CIRCLE issued "Emotive" in 2004.
