Tool tease further tour dates


Tool have said that they’ll release details of further live dates next week.

They have one date planned this summer – playing the Governor’s Ball Music Festival at Randall’s Island Park, New York, on June 4.

And in a new Facebook post, the band say: “Tool tour dates heads up. I will be posting some new Tool tour dates next week, so be sure to keep checking the site for info about more shows.”

Last month, the band confirmed that frontman Maynard James Keenan was in the studio laying down vocals for the follow-up to 2006’s 10,000 Days.

A statement read: “In speaking with drummer Danny Carey, he told me that the band has temporarily moved some of their gear into a larger space where Maynard is working on vocals for some of the new Tool material.

“I’m sure that he has already been doing this to some extent, but now he has more room to breathe and a better vocal booth.”

Ahead of Tool’s New York show, Keenan’s A Perfect Circle will head out on tour across the US from April 6. Find a full list of tour dates below.
