Tool hit the road in the middle of 2019, kicking things off with some US days in May and then a European run during June and July.
The million dollar question is whether or not this is a new album tour, or simply another 10k Days run. Time will tell, but at this time there’s no reason not to think the album will be out by May.
It’s reasonable to assume that there’s likely to be other US dates once the festival exclusivity period has passed – I think it’s relatively unlikely the band will just do 3 shows. I suspect this will be round 1 of the US touring for the new album, so don’t expect this tour to be extensive.
It wouldn’t surprise me to see other European shows as well, there appears to be a few gaps in the schedule that could accommodate shows. In particular I think the UK may get another show or two, and possibly France as well. Given that all non-festival dates sold out super quick, the demand is certainly there.
Looking longer term, I think it’s likely we’ll get more dates in Oct-Dec, I suspect a wider US tour, though Australia, NZ and Japan could see shows as well, but I suspect these might happen early 2020.
