This will most likely be the band's final U.S. shows in support of its fourth full-length album, "10,000 Days", which was released in the spring of 2006. As for the concert film or DVD that's rumored to have been shot during the group's recent touring cycle, bassist Justin Chancellor told The Pulse of Radio that there's no official plan yet. "We've got material that we could use from all kinds of different tours, but we haven't really looked at it yet," he said. "We've been, honestly, we've been too busy, so there's no plan to do anything like that. But there's a lot of hopes to do something like that and I'm sure it will happen, but there's no specific plan at the moment."
TOOL guitarist Adam Jones recently told Billboard.com that the group has been mulling the idea of making its own film, which would be part live footage and part conceptual material.
TOOL frontman Maynard James Keenan will issue the debut album from his side project PUSCIFER, titled "V Is For Vagina", on October 30 through his own Puscifer Entertainment label.
