Earlier this month, Tool announced their Music Clinic Tour, “a rare immersive dissection and performance with Danny CareyJustin Chancellor and Adam Jones.”

Now, the band released a promo video for the tour, backed by "new" music.

Sound familiar? That’s “Descending,” and you may have heard it live before. As NME and many YouTube commenters mentioned, it sounds like the newly shared song could be a demo version, but it’s never been released as a studio recording.

It’s no secret that Tool have been in the studio working on a follow up to 2006’s 10,000 Days, but frontman Maynard James Keenen recently tweeted—and then deleted the tweet—that he was done with the lyrics and melodies to the new album.

We’re itching for new Tool music, and all of this is bringing us that much closer to a new album.
