Maynard James Keenan and the guys of Tool have announced a new crop of U.S. headlining tour dates for this spring. The fresh dates will kick off May 7 in Birmingham, Alabama, and run through a May 17 date in Des Moines, Iowa.

The headlining dates come amid a handful of festivals that Tool was already schedule to play, including Welcome to Rockville in Jacksonville, Florida, on May 5; Epicenter in Rockingham, North Carolina, on May 11; and Chicago Open Air on May 19.

Last month, Keenan tweeted that Tool’s new studio album, the much-anticipated follow-up to 2006’s “10,000 Days,” would drop sometime between mid-May and mid-July. The band also recently posted a Facebook photo of members, minus Keenan, in a recording studio with producer and engineer Joe Barresi and mastering engineer Bob Ludwig– another sign major progress is being made.
