Follow the evidence.

It appears US rockers Tool have taken a leaf out of Iron Maiden’s book and released a mysterious Aussie tour announcement video.

The band dropped their first album in 13 years, Fear Inoculum, back in August, so it makes sense they’d be looking to celebrate the release with diehard fans around the world. It would be the group’s first gig Down Under since 2013.

Why does everyone think it’s them? Well, the font is a huge giveaway. Just take a look at the lettering used on Fear Inoculum‘s album cover compared to that of the teaser clip.

According to the video released by Frontier Touring, fans in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane could expect to find Tool in their cities in February 2020.

Don’t take our word for it. Check out the video for yourself:
