The Tool news continues to roll in. Earlier this week, the band extended their current North American headlining trek. Then, shortly thereafter, they announced a new "expanded book edition" of their chart-topping latest album Fear Inoculum. Today, November 14th, the prog-metal juggernaut revealed that they will be returning to Australia and New Zealand in February 2020 for a string of arena dates (see below), marking their first shows in both countries in seven years. Tickets will go on sale next Friday, November 22nd, with a 24-hour pre-sale set for the Wednesday before. Visit the Frontier Touring site for more information.
Australia and New Zealand were two of the countries in which Fear Inoculum debuted at No. 1. The album also came in at the top of the charts in Canada, Norway, Belgium and, of course, the U.S., where the band bumped Taylor Swift's Lover from the top spot.
