**News** 3/11/06 Tool, Rob Zombie, Pantera, Shadows Fall

Tool Album News
According to Billboard.com, Volcano has set a May 2 North American release date for the new TOOL album, entitled "10,000 Days". The 77-minute, 11-song prog-metal odyssey, which is said to be "packed with plenty of eight minute-plus twisted riff-a-thons, odd-tempo polyrhythms and the band's trademark, eerie interludes" (according to Kerrang! magazine), is the follow-up to 2001's "Lateralus", which debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 2.3 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

As previously reported, TOOL will play their first U.S. show since late 2002 when it headlines the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival on April 30 in Indio, Calif. No other U.S. dates have been confirmed.

Afterward, TOOL will spend the first portion of the summer playing the European festival circuit, with dates on tap through July 9 at Finland's Turku Festival.

Rob Zombie Information
Launch Radio Networks reports: ROB ZOMBIE is known for his spectacular live shows, but he's scaling things back a bit on his upcoming spring tour. Zombie told Launch that he still wants to give fans their money's worth without taking the focus off the music. "What I want to do is make it a big rock show where the human element of the band never gets lost, because I feel like that's what happened before a little bit," he explained. "It was a huge rock show, but the band was getting lost. This time I want to strike that delicate balance where, you know, you're getting the big show, but not to a point where the band becomes secondary to explosions."

Zombie begins a headlining U.S. tour on March 17 in Jacksonville, Florida, with LACUNA COIL and BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE along as support.

The touring line-up for Zombie's band includes longtime bassist Rob "Blasko" Nicholson, ex-MARILYN MANSON guitarist John 5 and former ALICE COOPER drummer Tommy Clufetos.

The former WHITE ZOMBIE frontman will be the featured musical guest on NBC-TV's "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on Wednesday, March 15.

Zombie's new album, "Educated Horses", comes out on March 28. The first single from the album, called "Foxy, Foxy", is accompanied by a video directed by Zombie.
