EARLIER: If there was ever a time to say “Classic Tool,” it would be today. The indie rockers announced an extensive, 2016 U.S. tour — which they’re calling a “sonic and visual extravaganza” — today on the group’s Facebook page. The run, which will be detailed over the coming weeks, will kick off in January. See their full message below.

This year, Tool played just one show and since it was a Halloween set, the band dressed up as Led Zeppelin and performed their cover of the band’s “No Quarter.”
