Tool Have Fire Scare In Studio As Member Honors Chris Cornell


Tool guitarist Adam Jones has shared a new studio photo of drummer Danny Carey with a burned drum head near a fire hose. Carey was wearing a Soundgarden King Animal shirt in the photo and when the incident took place.

Jones quipped that he couldn’t discuss in detail what happened until checking with the band’s lawyers. You can also view a photo of Carey inside the studio wearing the Soundgarden shirt before the incident took place below.

“~ um… I’m gonna check w our lawyers b4 commenting on this photo* #recording #Tool #CLOSEcall.”

Jones also recently shared a photo of Tim Dawson helping Tool in the studio.

“~ Our guitar/studio tech Tim @theacidhelps ? #Efficient #Diligent #Canadian.”

Tool recently announced that their new album would be recorded in analog rather than digital.

Tool announced earlier this month:


Who’s ready for some major breaking news? Brace yourself; get ready… okay, here we go. We are very excited to announce what is sure to be welcome news for both fans of TOOL and prog-metal enthusiasts in general. After all the years of writing and arranging (and re-arranging) at the band’s loft, I can at this time officially report that the guys have moved into a major studio where the recording process for the next 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 Danny to begin his tracking any time now – perhaps by the time that you read this!

I am also excited to announce that ‘evil’ JOE BARRESI will once again have his capable fingers at the engineering controls for what will certainly be another masterful TOOL offering by the talented team. Pinch yourself if you want, but I have been told that all systems are GO at this point for the upcoming sessions.

I will be posting periodic bits and pieces on the progress of the tracking once the guys get deeper into the recording process, and hope that all of you will keep checking back to the official website for these updates. In the meantime, be sure to also visit the individual band members’ sites and socials (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc.) for more inside glimpses as TOOL prepares for the next stage in their musical odyssey.
