ScHoolboy Q Blank Face LP Tour

Maynard James Keenan Book Tour
Sure, Tool isn’t planning on releasing a new album anytime soon, but perhaps the next best thing is a book tour from Maynard James Keenan. Right?

There will be a short Tool tour beforehand in October. Click here for tickets.

In addition to her performances at this year’s Mad Decent Block Parties, Kesha has just announced plans for a brand new project and accompanying tour. Kesha and the Creepies–a band the singer says comes from her “deep eternal love of dirty rock & roll and country music”–will hit the road from August 9 to August 23, starting in Cleveland, OH, and ending in Louisville, KY.
