Tool appears to be in the final stages of completing its new album. On Thursday (March 7th), the band shared a photo of guitarist Adam Jones, bassist Justin Chancellor and drummer Danny Carey alongside the album’s producer, Joe Barresi, and mastering engineer Bob Ludwig, who previously mastered Tool’s most recent disc, 2006’s 10,000 Days. Although unconfirmed, it appears that the picture was taken at Gateway Mastering Studios in Portland, Maine. The mastering process is usually the last step, after recording and mixing, before an album gets pressed, released and distributed. Tool entered the studio exactly one year ago, in March 2018, to begin recording the disc. Tool singer Maynard James Keenan recently said that the band’s fifth full-length album and first in 13 years would likely arrive “between mid-May and mid-July.”
