I did my usual Toolarmy visit this morning, and noticed Blair had posted an update, which alludes to some progress on the new Tool album (and tacos):

I went over to the loft a couple of days ago to find Danny in great spirits about the week’s writing sessions. Things went so well, in fact, that Tool’s drummer funded a 12-pack of crunchy tacos from Taco Bell for Thursday’s band lunch. Evidently all were reinvigorated after taking a small break the previous week (Danny going to Hawaii while Justin’s relatives were visiting from England), and indeed, upon close inspection, the second Dry-Erase board reflected this progress. (Sorry, no photos.)

Good to hear things are going well!
