New Album News from Tool, Radiohead and Iron Maiden

One post, three separate updates:

1. Tool: The new album is said to be “progressing nicely.” It’s possible that we might have something by the end of this year. It’s only been since 2o06…

2. Radiohead: Jonny Greenwood says things are going “really nicely.” This comes from The Sunday Guardian in India.

Q. Radiohead has also started writing a new record, the follow-up to 2011’s King of Limbs? What direction is the music heading in; has the sound changed radically yet again?

A. We’ve done a couple of months of recording, and it has gone really well. We haven’t listened to anything back yet, so at the moment we’re all very happy. Now, I guess we’re going to go and listen to what we’ve done and see if we were right to be so happy. But we left it at a good place when we last stopped.

We’ve certainly changed our method again. It’s too involved [to explain how]. We’re kind of limiting ourselves; working in limits. So we’ll see what happens. It’s like we’re trying to use very old and very new technology together to see what happens.

3. Iron Maiden: They have an album ready to go this year. And there’s this update on Bruce Dickinson’s cancer.
