Tool Names Producer For New Album

That new Tool album really is happening: guitarist Adam Jones revealed on Instagram that the band has recruited producer Joe Barresi to helm the recording sessions for the band’s long-awaited new album.

Barresi, an acclaimed producer who has worked with Avenged Sevenfold, Volbeat and Slipknot, engineered and mixed Tool’s last LP, 2006’s 10,000 Days.

Jones posted a photo from the studio online earlier this week with the caption “Day 1.” The guitarist had previously stated in January that the music for the band’s new effort was finished, later writing that the recording sessions would begin in March. Frontman Maynard James Keenan revealed last month that he had finished writing the “words and melodies” to all but one new song for the new disc.
