For those of you who haven’t heard, Tool’s founding bassist, Paul D’Amour, has a new band on the loose. On top of this they were recently signed to the juggernaut Sumerian Records and have a new album headed for your ears! In fact, the album is slated for release sometime early next year.

In the good ol’ toolish fashion, it was originally slated for this year before being pushed back. But it’s a safe bet this will hit store shelves before Tool’s next album (Which is also now slated for next year. Read up here).

Aurally, Lesser Key has a lot in common with Paul D’Amour’s original band but they bring certain elements to call their own. While you’re waiting, give the single “Intercession” a good listen below. You might just see what I mean.

Also, the band has a few dates coming up along the west coast. You can find the ad under the music video.
