Oh and there is more as a new album will also be forthcoming per the band last February:

“Members of the band are still in the process of writing new material (three days a week) . . . it shouldn’t be long before the dry-erase board is filled with a bewildering array of color-coded intros, progressions, agitatos, con sordinos, crescendos, diatonics, inversions, resolutions, transitions, variations, obbligatos, consonance, and endings — the arrangements that millions will attempt to download off the Internet.”

That makes it about four years since they released 10,000 Days (2006) blew our heads off, which was five years after Lateralus (2001), which was five years after AEnima (1996)!

To be fair in between releases we did get to enjoy the occasional Adam Jones citing with the Melvins and Maynard’s side projects A Perfect Circle (twice) & more recently Puscifer. And in between all of that Maynard runs a winery in Arizona and made a documentary about it called Blood into Wine that is coincidentally set to be released on May 4, 2010.

Our good friends at Your Music Magazine recently interviewed Maynard last month and talks about it. Check it out here.
