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.
