Danny Carey recently posted a video thanking everyone for voting for him in the 2022 Drumeo Awards… and then left fans with some interesting Tool news. According to Carey, Tool has a "major" fall tour planned outside the currently-announced summer festival circuit like Sonic Temple and Welcome To Rockville.

"Thank you, I appreciate your time and thoughts, and I hope to see you on the road in 2023," said Carey. We have a big tour coming in the fall and a few festivals in the summertime."

Tool played what is currently their last US show in June 2022 at the Bonnaroo Festival, and wrapped up their full-blown US tour last March. As for the fans asking when Tool will release new music now that it's been four years since Fear Inoculum, the show answer is "who knows."

In a March 2022 interview, Carey said the band had some leftover ideas from the Fear Inoculum sessions they were going to work on and that the new stuff won't take forever to complete.

"It was frustrating not having new material to play, but that time really flew by quickly. I guess that's just the nature of life. It's like when you have kids, and they're grown up, and you go, 'What happened?' It took a long time, but we did a lot of touring and tried to grow in different ways and take a break from each other to keep things fresh.

"We also wanted to bring in outside influences, so we would have something new to say to each other musically. It all came together really well on this one. I'm sure it won't take us this long for the next one. We even had some stuff left over from the last one that we'll develop. We have head starts on three or four new songs."

Carey also mentioned that the band is working on a live DVD comprised of shows mostly from Tool's Lateralus shows in 2002, and calls the release "a good mind blower for all the hardcore fans."
