Tool Post Album Update, Confirm 'At Least Three Band Members' Are Taking a Writing Break
A fresh update on Tool's new album writing process recently surfaced via official website, hinting that the band's instrumental section might have finally wrapped up their work on a lengthy "epic piece" and handed it over to singer Maynard James Keenan to deliver the lyrical part. The webmaster's update kicks off by noting that "one could hazard a guess that something rather positive must have occurred to warrant last week's leisurely break by at least three band members. "But then while checking out last year's newsletter for November, I was immediately struck with a sense of deja vu!" the post continues. "It suddenly seemed that even if the song still remained near completion, several of the guys were going to step away from it for a while." The report then discusses specific leisure activities the instrumental section had, just to focus on Keenan. "Which brings us to Maynard. No armadillo eggs, Yorkshire pudding or crimson jobfish. Zymurgical pursuits aside, the self-admitted world-class multi-tasker probably has all kinds of things going on with his various musical projects, including, perhaps, working on some lengthy, complex new Tool song..." During a recent Rolling Stone chat, Keenan described the new album writing as a "long, tedious process," expressing impatience about getting the musical parts to work on from the rest of the band. "I don't write the music. They write the music," he said. "I wait for them to bring music to me. They tend to go back over and over stuff. It's a long process. For a person like me, it can be a very tedious process." Does it seem like things are finally shaping up in the Tool workroom? Let us know in the comments.
