Tool has finally confirmed that something is happening in 2019 with the addition of the Roman numerals — MMXIX — for 2019 to their logo. It has been 13 years since the release of Tool’s last album 10,000 Days. On April 1, the band shared a “new song” video that consisted of 37 minutes of crickets chirping, then posted an additional four videos of crickets chirping. 

In February, Maynard James Keenan gave a estimate for the album’s release date, claiming it should be out in the summer. This came shortly after drummer Danny Carey’s statement that it would be ready by April.

In March, the band announced a handful of tour dates for 2019 in addition to their festival appearances. See the dates in the link below.
