Tool are presently working on a new studio album, having finished half of the songs according to a statement from the bands webmaster:

Tool (some of it reminiscent to earlier Tool stuff, with other parts pushing the envelope), and I assume that it will sound even more like Tool once the vocal melodies, etc. have been added."
The webmaster can't say for sure how far into the recording they are. "If I had to GUESS, I would say more than half way (and keep in mind that in the past, at least, the writing went faster once the first few more complex songs were finished)."
