Tool Post Mysterious Teaser, Album Speculation Ensues

We’re not quite sure what this photo means from Tool’s social media channels, but fans everywhere have their fingers crossed that it finally means a new album really is on the horizon.

The photo in question is of an outdoor amphitheater with the Tool band logo and “06-24” embedded in the lawn area.

The photo could also signal the announcement of a summer tour as well.  So far, Tool only has 13 tour dates scheduled this summer beginning May 24 and wrapping June 23.

Better yet, maybe it’s both?!  After news that the band’s entire catalog could be heading to streaming services soon, it’s seems like 2017 is going to be the year of Tool.
