Recording for Tool’s new album is “about to begin in earnest”

Martin Philbey/RedfernsTool is officially in the studio.

In a statement posted to the group’s website Saturday, the enigmatic prog-metallers reveal that the “recording process” for their long-awaited new album is “about to begin in earnest.”

“For the past few days the band members have been getting sonically adjusted to their new surroundings — dialing in the equipment settings and restaurant catering choices — in preparation for [drummer] Danny [Carey] to begin his tracking any time now — perhaps by the time that you read this!” the statement reads.

Tool also confirms that producer Joe Barresi will engineer the album.

The new album will be the follow-up to 2006’s 10,000 Days.
