Tool have finally announced the release date of their new album! No stitch-up

Rock News 08/05/2019

After 13 years, Tool have finally revealed when their long-awaited fifth studio album will be released.

Tool used their latest live appearance at Alabama’s Legacy Arena to give us the news we’ve been waiting for, the album will drop on 30 August, THIS YEAR.

This video above was played during an intermission where the date 'August 30th' was displayed above the stage. Understandably, the crowd went nuts.

This follows a raft of teases from the band. Late last week guitarist Adam Jones teased a new riff, and at a show two nights ago Tool played two brand new songs in full.

There's no official word from Tool about the album, but surely this is it.

The wait is almost over.
