Metal fans, rejoice: Tool has announced a spring 2020 North American tour, and it’ll kick off in Miami, the hottest and heaviest city of them all.

The postmetal band announced Monday it’ll follow up its March shows in Oregon and Utah with a full-blown tour through the States and Canada this April through June. The Maynard James Keenan-fronted group will hit the Magic City on Thursday, April 16, for a headlining concert at the American Airlines Arena. Tool will round out its Florida dates with gigs in Orlando and Tampa on April 17 and 19.

The song “7empest” recently netted the band a Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance. The 15-minute-plus epic was the closing song on August 2019’s Fear Inoculum, the group’s first full-length LP since 2006’s 10,000 Days.

Cultishly adored indie band Blonde Redhead will be on opening duties for the AA Arena show and the initial leg of Tool’s new tour. Tickets will be available for purchase online beginning at 10 a.m. this Friday, February 28.
