TOOL has expanded their upcoming summer tour, adding six more shows to the itinerary!! The trek now kicks off at the Mile High Music Festival in Commerce City, Colorado on July 18, 2009; with gigs slated to run through at least to early August!! The band's last scheduled appearance on this jaunt is at Chicago's Lollapalooza festival on the weekend of August 7, 2009. Do you have your tickets yet?
The members of TOOL have recently hinted that work is beginning on a new album, but further details have yet to surface. The band's last effort, "10,000 Days", came out in 2006. Frontman Maynard James Keenan has spent much of the last year and a half working with his side project PUSCIFER, as well as his Arizona-based vineyard, Page Springs Cellars. Keenan and winemaking partner Eric Glomski will continue touring Whole Foods outlets around the country next month for bottle signing sessions. That's kind of cool, it's different. I'm gonna hit that up!
