Tool Reveal Release Date For New Album

It’s been an agonizing wait for Tool’s highly anticipated fifth album, but the wait is nearly over. Tool has announced the new album will come out August 30th.

The band confirmed the news during their show in Birmingham, Alabama on Tuesday (May 7th). According to fans, a video screen flashed the date “August 30th” during the set’s intermission. Frontman Maynard James Keenan encouraged them to share the news on social media, saying, “Alright, everyone, take out your phones, security stand down, and let these fuckers do whatever it is with their phones.” Tool later posted the video on Twitter.

The news comes just days after Tool kicked off their North American tour at Welcome to Rockville. During their set, they debuted two new songs: “Descending” and “Invincible.” The band’s current outing wraps up May 19th in Bridgeville, Illinois. Check out all their dates here.
