Maynard Keenan: 'Tool's new album is progressing nicely'

They still haven't recorded ANYTHING

Tool singer Maynard James Keenan has provided yet another update on the band's new album, saying it's 'coming along nicely'.

Obviously that's all well and good, but we had a report that said exactly the same at the end of 2014. Considering the record was supposed to be released earlier that year, it always seems to be one step forward and two steps back and doesn't really sound like any real progress hs been made. But still, good things come to those who wait and we're pretty excited. 

Taking to Instagram Maynard, who writes his vocals after the instrumentals are recorded, posted on Instagram:

"I've been making regular trips to LA to check on the writing progress of my Tool brethren. Things a progressing nicely. Slowly, but definitely progressing. Nothing is recorded yet, but the guys are confident that the pieces are coming together swimmingly and will be ready for me to begin writing melodies and content 'soon'.

"I'm as anxious to get this album completed as everyone else. But as history will show, you can't rush these gents. Patience is Gold in this Sound Mine. In the meantime, as always, other things are simultaneously occurring. Life is too short not to create something with every breath we draw."

Considering the "patience is gold" comment, we'll alter our 2015 release prediction to 2016, which is frustrating. But if it's the band at their full capabilities, it'll certainly be worth the wait.

Why the new Tool album will be absolutely mind blowing
