It is with great pleasure I get to announce our return to the road,” said Danny Carey. “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.

Their most recent studio album, ‘Fear Inoculum‘ was released back in August 2019 which saw the band play at selected festival shows, as well as a North American tour, before the fallout of Covid-19 shut down the global live entertainment industry.

Fear Inoulum‘ bridged a 13-year gap between the band’s studio albums with the opus hitting the number 1 slot in countries all over the globe.

Tool’s campaign of dominance continued with their official back catalogue finally being released to streaming platforms in 2019 seeing them also hit the top of the streaming charts across the globe.
