No surprises here really, but Tool have postponed the remaining dates scheduled for 2020, and I’ve pasted the comment from Toolband below. It’s obviously a challenging time for bands and the music industry at the moment, and while the band are keen to reschedule, I personally think that we’re unlikely to see significant touring from anyone until 2021, at least until a vaccine or more definitive solution to the COVID-19 problem can be found.
Support the bands you love, especially the smaller ones feeling the pinch the most. Buy a record, t-shirt or whatever, I know the love will be appreciated.
We hope you and your loved ones are doing as well as possible given the difficult time we all find ourselves in. As the spread of COVID-19 continues we have made the difficult decision to postpone the remainder of our previously announced Spring 2020 performances. Previously purchased tickets will be honored for the rescheduled performances, which we hope to be able to announce soon.
Stay home, stay healthy and please, wash your hands.https://toolband.com/news/2020/postponed-tool-spring-tour-dates/
Tough times at the moment for many, and I hope all of my Fourtheye friends are doing well. Don’t forget we have a Fourtheye Discord channel, which is pretty active these days as people transition to a new form of social connection. This kind of chat isn’t for everyone, but if you’re ever looking for a buddy to hang with, there’s a pretty active community around who has your back.
Even though there’s not really much news happening at the moment, I do have a few things up my sleeve for Fourtheye. I haven’t got around to posting my tour diary from the recent Australian jaunt, and I do have a updated Fear Inoculum review as well. Stay tuned for hopefully some interesting reading!

While you are working on that tour diary and updated album review it would be helpful if you updated the ‘Formats’ section on the right hand side to reflect that there was no vinyl in 2019, and that there are two editions of the album.
Now that we have addressed that, let’s talk about you..
Are you planning on furthering your speleological exploits during this time of isolation?
Or are you focusing more on the safety and health of your young infant?
Thanks for reaching out Maynard. Caving is more or less off limits for now, as it’s not a solo sport, and certainly not one done easily with social distancing. Not to mention most rural communities are turning away visitors at the moment. I’m not optimistic of much caving at all in 2020 tbh.
Certainly focused on my families and immediate members. My “young infant” just turned 12, so not so young really!
Bizarre. I seem to recall you saying you became a father only 3 or 4 yrs ago.
