According to both Tower Records Japan and HMV Japan, the new TOOL album is scheduled for release in Japan on May 10. However, the band and their label have yet to confirm this information or announce a release date for any of the other territories.
Even though the members of TOOL have already begun giving press interviews to promote the new CD, no official album title or track listing has yet been announced. Recent Internet rumors have suggested that TOOL's first CD since 2001's "Lateralus" will be named "Aldaraia" and a target U.S. release date of May 2 was given for the effort, but these reports have yet to be corroborated by an official source.
TOOL's brand-new album was mastered on January 31 at Gateway Mastering Studios in Portland, Maine by Bob Ludwig. The members of the band were present during the mastering, according to a posting on Toolband.com.
TOOL's only scheduled U.S. concert thus far is slated for April 30 at the Coachella Festival in Indio, California.
