Maybe that sporadically hinted but never confirmed Tool album is actually happening?

The band has now revealed via Facebook that Tool is gearing up to hit the road again in early January - perhaps this time supporting new music?

Tickets go on sale on Friday, with full date and venue details available below. The band had also enigmatically posted this message just before revealing the dates:

"SOMETHING WICKED THIS... YOUR WAY COMES! For those of you who only like NEWS about TOOL, here's something that should be of great interest. The impenetrable veil of my dark scrying mirror FINALLY CLEARED today - enough so, in fact - that I could perceive a large heptagram on a complexly lit stage where four performers were dwarfed by dramatic video projections.

"Evidently the sonic and visual extravaganza that I was receiving is a rare glimpse of FUTURE TOOL U.S.A. TOUR DATES in the month of JANUARY, 2016 e.v. However, with some of the images in the depths of the black glass not being clearly distinct... YET, fans will have to keep checking back for an official announcement.

"Regarding an opening band(s), what I was able to discern through the ever-shifting veil will in all likeliness be exciting to many Tool enthusiasts. STAY TUNED, FOLKS... as my trusty SCRYING MIRROR CONTINUES TO CLEAR..."

It seems that Primus is opening for them along with some industrial act called threeteeth (or stylistically 3TƎETH).

Tickets for the show here in Tulsa go on sale this Friday.

Looking forward to seeing Primus as well. Still haven't seen Les Claypool in concert.
