TOOL Confirms First Show Of 2015 For Halloween

According to The Pulse Of Radio, TOOL will play its first confirmed concert of 2015 on Halloween (October 31) at a one-day music festival called Monster Mash. The event will take place in Tempe, Arizona and the lineup will also feature PRIMUS and COHEED AND CAMBRIA. The show will mark the first time that TOOL has stepped onto a stage since a brief U.S. tour in April 2014

Guitarist Adam Jones revealed in March that the band had finally settled a complicated lawsuit that had dragged on for eight years and set back the band's recording and touring plans.

The band is now reportedly working at a faster pace on music for its first new studio set since 2006, with one song finished musically and 10 others in various stages of completion.
Jones told The Pulse Of Radio that coming up with music wasn't hard for TOOL. "We've got lots of material," he said. "Our strongest thing is jamming. But grouping stuff together — and that's kind of how we work, you know, we jam and then you kind of go, 'Wow, this works with this really well' — and then you jam those two things and see if you can get 'em to work. But potential songs that aren't finished, I mean, we've got more than you can count on both hands, you know, and I'm excited about everything."

Jones said about the new music, "Some of it's really heavy, some of it's complex and some is more atmospheric, but it's definitely TOOL."

TOOL singer Maynard James Keenan also has a new album on the way from his side act PUSCIFER, which he plans to release this fall.
