Adam confirms another track done!

Progress is slow, however some glimmer of light shines through the storm clouds with Adam today confirming that another Tool track is “in the can (minus Vox)”.  So while the album ain’t done yet (and probably is still a way off) at least there seems to be progress!

~ Another arrangement in the can (minus Vox) #onefingerchallenge #Tool song schematic

“minus Vox”?

Some “news” of sorts.

minus “Vox” = vocals, no?

Hopefully this means another track has been RECORDED at the loft and they’re waiting on The Nard to add the vox (which have already been tweaked with and worked around for the last ten years). Adam once said something like… We lay the groundwork for the song and then Maynard comes in and shit gets weird. Hopefully they’re past the ‘weird’ part and are recording. I’ll be a wooden nickel Aaron Harris will be the engineer on this record.

This is funny. They’ve had 10 years to get the arrangements done for MJK to come in and contribute and now that he’s going away with APC then suddenly the situation is “minus Vox”

these days you can record yourself wherever you are just as well as a “professional” studio, so who knows, maybe they are recording the music as they go at their leisure….

Yup, that’s what I’m saying… Maybe they’re recording tracks that are 100% ready to go, but Nard still needs to track the vocals. They’ve had a few photos in the past with all their recording shit in the loft. April 21st, be there!!

I think we’ve just set a record for consecutive constructive/positive replies, HB.

That in and of itself is progress enough for me!

I can’t imagine why we wouldn’t welcome any (this) change!

(See what I did there)

I used to think Hooker with a Penis lyrics were “I’ve got some Mad Vox for you little buddy” …
ha ha ha!
I’m sure ‘ol Keenan listens to the track 20+ times thinking about what to say and where. Can you imagine getting to hear that now?

a little more progress! nice!

They have said in the past that once the lyrics are done maynard will ask to change this or that to fit the words better. so ya, chances are that is coming for these newly arranged songs. whenever that is,is when it is

its just cool to get some real news for once 🙂

True any news is something, but this should’ve been the news update in 2010.

Adam posting positive things like this while Maynard continues to spew negative thoughts regarding “that band” and its “roadblocks” on his latest radio interview is either a front to make the fans think there’s a rift between the two of them when there (hopefully) isn’t, or he’s truly frustrated/exhausted with the slow pace of writing and just moving on with APC this year while he continues to wait. Either way there’s no new music before summer 2018 at the earliest and I feel bad for him seeming to get the blame from a lot of uneducated fans. I’d think they… Read more »

fair point. I keep thinking the flood gates will open once this last contracted album is out. 30 cd boxsets of outtakes etc…
