Tool have announced a string of tour dates taking place across the US this summer.

The tour will kick off in Jacksonville, Florida on May 5, and wrap up in Chicago on 19 May, before the band head to Europe for a number of previously-announced festival appearances

Find full tour dates, including the European festival leg, at the bottom of the page. Tickets will be available on March 15 at 3pm.

Tool have also been teasing album release dates for what feels like decades. Back in January drummer Danny Carey said we'd be looking at an April release, while vocalist Maynard James Keenan recently tweeted: “Best Ballpark Guess- Release date somewhere between Mid May and Mid July.” 

The band also posted a photograph of studio progress to their Facebook page last week, with band members posing with producer Joe Barresi and engineer Bob Ludwig. Still, we'll believe it when we see it.
