Tool have announced that New York-based collective Brass Against will be playing as support on their upcoming European tour in 2022.

Brass Against are a group of politically-minded musicians who – as declared on their website – "share the goal of creating music to inspire social and personal change". The group are known for their heavy brass-filled covers of songs by artists such as Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave and – of course – Tool, previously performing covers of The Pot and Lateralus.

Taking to social media to share the good news, Brass Against wrote: "This is so fun to write…We are the special guests on Tool’s European tour in the spring!!”

Meanwhile, Tool wrote: "Brass Against captured our attention after posting their covers of The Pot, Lateralus, and more. We’re excited to share that they’ll be joining us for our spring 2022 European tour.”

When Maynard James Keenan and co. first announced the tour last month, Tool’s Danny Carey said, “It is with great pleasure I get to announce our return to the road. 

"These past 18 months have been trying to say the least but from great trials come great lessons and great rewards. We are genuinely looking forward to sharing them with you.”
