Tool Reportedly in Full Writing Mode
According to the latest reports, Tool are finally back to making music as a four-piece, as frontman Maynard James Keenan joined the new album writing sessions. As Alternative Nation reports, the info was confirmed in August 2013 Tool newsletter. "The first thing that I noticed was that some of the band's equipment had been moved back to their usual places, meaning that the guys had probably delivered the goods to MJK, and were now back in their 'normal' writing session mode," the report reads. "Then I saw further evidence on a new Dry-Erase board that was filled with indecipherable scrawls written with a red marker. "Studying this the best I could, I realized that this indeed was a curveball of the likes of Feller or Blylevin. But then again, a better baseball pitch analogy might be that of a changeup such as thrown by Martinez, Verlander or Glavine." The group's highly-anticipated new record is tentatively due in early 2014, with no official announcements made as of yet. "We could have the record finished by the end of the year - that's a possibility, but the logistics of getting it manufactured and getting the record company in line and all this stuff, I doubt we'll be able to get it out before Christmas," drummer Danny Carey told Loudwire. "We'll see how it goes. Most likely, it'll be early 2014." As the latest Tool effort, "10,000 Days" dropped back in May 2006, landing at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with 564,000 copies sold in the US within the first week.
