    Enigmatic Tool vocalist Maynard James Keenan told Rolling Stone that the band is still making progress on their first record since 2006 and that he is also working on a new album from his other band, A Perfect Circle. Of the slow Tool writing process and chasm between records, MJK said, "Most bands get into a contract and are forced to put out a third record before they're ready. And generally speaking, that third record always ends up being about the road, a lawsuit or the press because they don't have anything to talk about. They haven't lived their lives."

    Regarding A Perfect Circle, he said, "We've got some riffs and some music. It's just basically playing it over and over again while driving and waiting for things to fall into place."
