Triple Grammy®award winning Caifornia prog-rockers Tool will play live in New Zealand this May!
Taking time from recording their highly anticipated fifth studio album, vocalist Maynard James Keenan, guitarist Adam Jones, drummer Danny Carey and bassist Justin Chancellor will be performing a series of headline shows across Australia and New Zealand this May.
Since the release of their debut LP Undertow almost 20 years ago, Tool have achieved remarkable critical acclaim and commercial success for both their studio releases and phenomenal live performances:
‘A symphony of distorted bliss and polyrhythmic elegance that’s as complex as it is catchy.’ - ArtistDirect
‘To know and love Tool is to know and love an intense multi-dimensional sound that reaches beyond a simple audio experience.’ - Examiner
Beyond their groundbreaking sonic work, Tool have also come to prominence for their efforts in unifying the arts. Some of their countless contributions to the arts include the Grammy®award winning 3D album packaging for 10,000 Days, music videos that stand alone as pieces of cinematic brillianceand live shows that include elaborate lighting installations, spectacular laser displays and video displays as brilliant as the performances themselves.
Fans and critics alike have been eagerly awaiting the follow up to Tool’s much adored 2006 release 10,000 Days. The band have been hard at work in the studio over the past few years, endeavouring to create an album that feels more like a single piece of music from beginning to end than simply a collection of songs. With no confirmed release date, those lucky enough to attend this tour may get one of the first tastes of what is to come for Tool.
