TOOL: New Album Update

According to a posting at, TOOL members Adam Jones (guitars), Justin Chancellor (bass) and Danny Carey (drums) "have been keeping to their rigorous schedule, writing and arranging material for the next TOOL CD, this despite the Lakers being in the NBA play-offs, a fact of life which occupies a couple of the band members' nights (rehearsal/writing sessions go from noon 'till six). In a couple of weeks, when he's finished touring with [A PERFECT CIRCLE], [singer] Maynard [James Keenan] will join in on the ghastly fun (although he's already been quite involved), and hopefully, another web-cast can be arranged once more of the new songs begin to take shape. In the meantime, while talking to Danny the other night as the new SKINNY PUPPY release exploded from his living room speakers, he began to describe for me the complex time signatures of one of the new TOOL songs, adding, after another sip of a Saint Pauli Girl (the German beer), that it was probably the best piece of music he'd ever been involved with. And this after only a half of a beer."
