    Tool have finally announced the release date for their next album, which will be their first in 13 years.

    The record will arrive August 30, the metal group announced on Twitter. They also confirmed the date at an Alabama concert earlier this week, Consequence of Sound reports, and also recently performed brand-new songs live.

    Hype for the first Tool project since 2006’s 10,000 Days has built steadily over the past couple of months, with speculation around its release date and small updates on its progress slowly drip-fed to fans by the band and friends alike.
