      Tool has mapped out a North American tour for the fall, marking its first Canadian shows since 2019. The rock band plays Rogers Arena on October 23.

      The LA four-piece recently released “Opiate2,” a reimagining of the title track of their 1992 EP, Opiate, to mark its 30th anniversary. The track was accompanied by a 10-minute short film by Adam Jones and visual artist Dominic Hailstone (Alien: Covenant).

      Tool’s latest full-length release is 2019’s Fear Inoculum, which received critical acclaim and was nominated for two Grammy Awards. The band won Best Metal Performance for “7empest”.

      Tickets for the tour go on sale Friday, June 9 via Ticketmaster. Reviews from last year’s sold-out runs have described the performances as “a masterclass of immersion, sound and stage design, musicianship… and levels of ungodly tightness” (Loudwire) and an “unbridled exchange of catharsis between performers and fans” (Austin Chronicle).
