Maynard James Keenan and Co. haven’t released new music since 2006 though, and the press we received doesn’t say anything about a new album, which is not promising.

The first of the new dates is in Fairfax, Va., at

The shows are being billed as an “unparalleled sonic and visual experience,” and the band’s use of visuals and lights in past concerts certainly validates that claim.

The lineup for Tool is currently drummer Danny Carey, Adam Jones on guitar, and Justin Chancellor on bass, with Keenan on vocals. 

Here is the plan:

May 24 – Fairfax, Va., EagleBank Arena
May 27 – Bangor, Maine, Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion
May 28 – Allston, Mass., Harvard Athletic Complex (Boston Calling)
May 30 – Rochester, N.Y., Blue Cross Arena
May 31 – Hamilton, Ontario, FirstOntario Centre
June 2 – Montreal, Quebec, Bell Centre
June 4 – New York, N.Y., Randall’s Island (Governors Ball Music Festival)
June 5 – Pittsburgh, Pa., Peterson Events Center
June 7 – Clarkston, Mich., DTE Energy Music Theatre
