TOOL Extends Current North American Swing

Launch Radio Networks reports: TOOL keeps tacking shows onto its current North American tour, which now extends into mid-July. According to, the quartet has added concerts in Montreal; Boston; Portland, Maine; Fort Worth, Texas and others to its schedule. The trek, which began in late April with two nights in Las Vegas, was postponed from March after drummer Danny Carey tore his bicep in an accident at home.

The band has also booked another festival date, at Milwaukee's Summerfest, to add to its mid-June appearance at Tennessee's Bonnaroo event. Danny Carey told Launch that TOOL approaches festivals differently from its own shows. "It's this whole different vibe when you play at a festival," he said. "People have already had to go through so much, you know, especially if you're headlining. By the time you're on, you know, you don't wanna just drive them into the ground, you know. I think in those cases less is more, so we're happy just to play more rocking, straight ahead songs and not get too tedious 'cause it's not that kind of an environment. We'll save that for our own shows."

TOOL plays Tuesday night (May 8) in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Singer Maynard James Keenan recently wrote at his MySpace page that he has been working on new music from his side project PUSCIFER and hopes to release its first album in October.

TOOL is touring behind its fourth full-length studio album, "10,000 Days".
