Tool have announced an extensive North American tour for later this year. The 26 new dates are in addition to three previously announced festival shows, at Kentucky's Louder Than Life Festival and California's Aftershock and Power Trip.

The first of the newly announced dates is at the Budweiser Events Center in Loveland, CO, on October 3, and the trek winds up with a pair of shows at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, ON, on November 20 and 21.  

Announcing the dates on social media, the band say, "We'll be back on the road this October and November for 26 shows across the United States and Canada. Tickets for all non-festival shows are on-sale this Friday, June 9 at 10 am local time.

A limited number of VIP packages will also be initially available to TOOL Army members, with remaining options, including premium tickets, sound check access, exclusive merchandise and more, available to the general public as the on-sale begins on June 9."
