Tool have today announced plans to hit the road in 2019.
The band, who haven’t released new material since 2006 album 10,000 Days, give the biggest sign yet that a new record may well be on the way. The news that Tool will be touring follows the update provided by frontman Maynard James Keenan who hinted the new material was on the way. “Scratch Vox tracked awhile ago. [Adam Jones] deep in Guitars now. Final Vox after. Step back,” he said.
“Adjust. Mix. Adjust. Re-Adjust. Master. Adjust. Re-Adjust. Long Way 2 Go But Much Closer,” he added:
