Yes they will! Tickets go on sale next week! Although, I sorta wish they would just finish the new album, then tour. Not complaining though!

Holy drymount balls! Amen to a North American tour! I thought Nardo was too busy with Puscifer and APC to give Tool another tour. Must need some capital to plant some more grapes...

I am a Tool fan, but the last 3 times I saw them (over the course of 2 or 3 tours) they pretty much had the same setlist. The strobe lights had more energy than the band members. They better start playing some new material soon. This money grabbing fudge Maynard and co. are pulling between this and APC is pathetic (not to mention the ATROCIOUS, overpriced, posters, poor quality t-shirts, and other merch). Speaking of APC, I'm so glad I didn't spend the time/money to catch their Vegas show near the end of 2012. You'd think it'd be a hella special show since it was a one-off event, but it was the same old setlist, with one too many songs from eMOTIVe. Very lame.

I'm bitching now, but I'm sure I'll cave and buy tickets if Tool swings by Los Angeles soon. :roll:

Edit: Apparently, the video for The Pot is around the corner. Seriously? I'm not the least bit excited. It's one thing to pursue your own vision, but to be completely out of sync with your fan base is another thing entirely. Sounds to me like they want $12-14 by releasing a physical single no one but Tool drones think they want.

Edit #2: In comparison, I can appreciate (even more than before) the hard work and respect shown by artists like Trent Reznor, Steven Wilson, etc. These men put their heart and soul into everything they do, and ALWAYS go the extra mile for their fans. I am proud to be a NIN/SW fan, but cannot say the same about Tool and APC nowadays.

So because you are a fan, TOOL (and Maynard) owe you something??
Aren't musicians allowed to create their art at their pace. I think if TOOL rushed out album after album and tour after tour the entire work would be lacking the qualities that make TOOL who/what they are.

As for merch....yes its overpriced, but its still selling, sooooo seems like an easy to understand supply and demand model to me.
