Tool's New Album Is Finished
Tool have finished their new studio album, Conseqence of Sound reports.

According to Crave Online, guitarist Adam Jones has confirmed that the long-awaited follow-up to 2006's "10,000 Days" is "100% done" and should arrive later this year.

In an interview with Loudwire last summer, drummer Danny Carey insinuated that some outside forces were holding up the album's release. "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. We'll see how it goes. Most likely, it'll be early 2014."

Meanwhile, frontman Maynard James Keenan spoke about the band's intricate recording process in an interview with Rolling Stone last November. "I don't write the music. They write the music," he said of his bandmates. "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."

Keenan continued, "In some ways, they are bigger perfectionists. But you can only help support their talent so long. They don't have to go through it 700 times. They can trust that first thought. But that's their process, so you gotta let them do it."

Tool is currently touring the US, their first such jaunt in two years.

Time to open the champagne, isn't it?
