TOOL has started work on its first new album since since 2006's "10,000 Days", and the group recently updated fans on the progress in a newsletter that explains, "Members of the band are still in the process of writing new material (three days a week) . . . it shouldn't be long before the dry-erase board is filled with a bewildering array of color-coded intros, progressions, agitatos, con sordinos, crescendos, diatonics, inversions, resolutions, transitions, variations, obbligatos, consonance, and endings — the arrangements that millions will attempt to download off the Internet."
Singer Maynard James Keenan's "Blood Into Wine" documentary about an Arizona vineyard is due out on September 4 on DVD.
Keenan has also been busy with his side project PUSCIFER.
