TOOL recently announced more rescheduled dates for its spring U.S. tour, which was postponed from its original mid-March start after drummer Danny Carey tore a bicep while picking up his dog at home. Nearly 40 shows have been confirmed so far, including a co-headlining appearance at Manchester, Tennessee's Bonnaroo Festival in mid-June.

According to, singer Maynard James Keenan has been working during TOOL's unexpected break on new music from his side project PUSCIFER. Keenan revealed at his MySpace page that AUDIOSLAVE/RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk have played on the tracks, along with ex-PRIMUS and A PERFECT CIRCLE drummer Tim Alexander.

TOOL is continuing to support its latest album, "10,000 Days", and current single, "Jambi".
