Tool has announced the first set of shows for their previously alluded-to 2016 tour. The band will kick off a set of shows on Saturday, January 9 in San Diego, and they’ll be making stops in San Antonio, Tulsa, Dallas, Memphis, Nashville, Atlanta and Charlotte. All of the shows have none other than Primus listed as one of the openers (along with an industrial band called 3teeth also joining them), so these shows are going to be a metalhead’s dream come true.

All shows start going on sale this Friday, November 20th.

Here’s the official announcement from the band (with ticket links included):

TOOL SHOWS!
Those faint glimpses of TOOL SHOWS that I recently perceived in the scrying mirror can now be considered official. Indeed, something wicked your way comes…THE UNPARALLELED SONIC AND VISUAL EXPERIENCE OF TOOL LIVE.
