Just surviving fifty years on this planet demonstrations darwinistic superiority in your family’s gene pool, however if you’re Tool’s front man Maynard James Keenan, the milestone begets a highly anticipated new studio album along with a worldwide tour in March. Take notes kids, this silverback can tear it up.
With the decision of Tool to embark on their own March Madness, the group of five middle-aged men who have a knack for disappearing, will remerge from their hibernation once again, this time beginning with a thirteen venues run over the course of March. Fans have grown accustom to epic blocks of time passing between album cycles, however it’s been a seven year drought since the release of 10,000 Days, so fans are undoubtedly salivating at the prospect of the new album to be dropped sometime early this year.
Celebrating the half century feat, MJK celebrates the event egregiously at an event dubbed Cinquanta, featuring his the two side bands A Perfect Circle and Puscifer, and joined by Ken Andrew’s recently resuscitated 90’s project, Failure, at LA’s Greek Theatre. The performance will serve mostly as a warm up for his main gig with Tool, but will mainly cement the idea that 50-year-old men can still take off their shirts on stage without fear of creepy man boobs.
Stay tuned to Contender.com for all the latest news about Tool and (hopefully) their new album. The tour takes root in Spokane, WA on March 4th at Spokane Arena, and has no sign of slowing down as it steams through much of the US, Europe and Australia. Let’s see what you’re doing when you hit 50. Show some respect.
