TOOL will play its first New York City concert in eleven years as the headliner of this year's Governors Ball three-day music festival, scheduled for June 2-4 at New York's Randall's Island.

TOOL last performed in New York City in May 2006 when it played two shows at New York City Center. The instrumental members of TOOL have reportedly been working three days a week on new material, although to date singer Maynard James Keenan has not joined them for those sessions.

 

Keenan has been touring with his other act, PUSCIFER, and has been on a book tour in recent weeks to promote the release of his new memoir, "A Perfect Union Of Contrary Things".

I'd like to point out (again) that Tool hasn't released an album since 2006. That's now 11 years ago.

Even Axl Rose thinks that's ridiculous.
