There was a leaked lineup for the Aftershock Festival that came out yesterday, will Tool claimed as the headliner. Today we have formal confirmation that Tool will indeed be the final act on Sunday night the 13th of October.

Joining them on the day are such excellent bands as Gojira, Architects, Fu Manchu, The Crystal Method and Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes. Not a bad lineup I gotta say, despite a few cringeworthy acts on the day.

At this point, I think it’s safe to assume that this will be the first of many dates to be announced across the US in the later half of the year. I’d be expecting a more extensive tour around September and October covering all the usual stops in the US and Canada.
