Tool Reveal If There Is Tension Over New Album Recording


Fans have feared that Maynard James Keenan’s statements regarding Tool’s new album delays could lead to some tension with the band in the studio as they record their new album, but according to a new Instagram posting from Adam Jones, everything is going great.

Jones wrote on Instagram, “Good vibes in the control room ??? @eviljoebarresi #Tool #recording #BlackPhillip.” In the post he tagged Joe Baressi, who is producing Tool’s new album.

Baressi has shared photos from the studio, including a photo of pedals. He wrote on Instagram, “Some insane sounds happening with this rig today.”

Baressi also shared a photo of a studio bed, seemingly for a dog, unless Maynard, Justin, Adam, or Danny are tired enough to want to use it!

“New studio bed. Thanks guys!”

A fan managed to capture Tool guitarist Adam Jones’ Instagram live video he filmed last month. The video lasted over 20 minutes, and featured Jones jamming on guitar in the studio. He appears to be far along in recording his guitar parts.

dick_in_a_vice wrote on Tool’s Reddit:

“He was actually playing solo for about 10 minutes. sounded like it was a warm up routine and then he was just doing his thing.

the live stream comments are pretty golden, people making the biggest deal about the most random mundane shit, like the jar of weird juice he has lmao.”

“Adam petting the dog is the best Tool related thing since 10k Days.”

dick_in_a_vice commented:

“Sadly it’s the first recording of him inside a studio fingering anything since 10,000 days.”

unclefire commented:

“Funny comment: “Wow, Adam knows more than 4 chords in Drop D”

I assume this is at a studio vs. “the loft” Right?”
