Tool Drummer Announces New Volto! Album
While waiting for the rest of his band in Tool to complete their long-awaited new record, drummer Danny Carey has been using his free time to work with other musicians on a jazz-infused rock act called Volto!.
It turns out that Volto! has been so productive that they’ve got a whole album lined up for release, recorded by former Tool producer and all-round recording legend Joe Barresi.
Carey recently described the project as the result of live jams at a famous jazz club, and features plenty of solos from every member in the lineup. Depending on your taste in jazz fusion records, that may or may not be a good thing.
Carey isn’t the only Tool member to contribute to the project; guitarist Adam Jones created the art for the cover.
