Keenan is well known as frontman for Tool and A Perfect Circle.
Keenan dropped in at Ardent while Tool was in the area for a concert at Desoto Civic Center. Ardent actually hosted the first studio sessions for Keenan’s new dark and rhythmic material, which has been heretofore recorded on the road during the Tool tour. The project continues through June, coinciding with Tool’s headline appearance at the Bonnaroo Music Festival in nearby Manchester, TN.
