It seems like TOOL are about to announce a new tour. Way back in February, drummer Danny Carey slyly dropped that his alt-metal crew have "a big tour coming in the fall" of 2023. Since then, the band have been radio silent on that front — until today (June 1st). 

In a new Instagram post promoting the "new and improved" TOOL army fan club, the band teased that the tour announcement we've been waiting for on bated breath is coming "very soon." 

"More detail [sic] for our upcoming tour dates coming very soon," TOOL wrote. 

Elsewhere in the post, the band mention that the TopFan service they're now using for the TOOL army includes "exclusive pre-sale to TOOL headlining shows and early access to VIP packages."

It only seems reasonable to assume that they'd be mentioning that information now if they were getting ready to put it into effect. At least we hope so! Stay tuned for more info.

TOOL played two festivals last month (Welcome to Rockville and Sonic Temple) and have three more on the calendar for later this fall — Louder Than Life (September 22nd), Aftershock (October 6th) and PowerTrip (October 8th). As of now, those are the only live dates they have announced for 2023.
