The wait is finally over: Tool have debuted their first new music in over a decade.

As part of their headlining set at Welcome to Rockville in Jacksonville on Sunday night, the band performed two new songs: “Descending” and “Invincible”. Watch fan-captured footage below.

It’s worth noting that Tool previously debuted an instrumental version of “Descending” in concert. However, their Welcome to Rockville set marked the first performance of the completed song with lyrics and vocals sung by frontman Maynard James Keenan.

Presumambly, both “Descending” and “Invincible” are taken from Tool’s long-awaited new album, the band’s first since 2006’s 10,000 Days. Keenan previously said the as-yet-untitled album should arrive “between mid May and mid July” of this year.

Welcome to Rockville marked the start of Tool’s latest US tour, which runs through mid-May. You can enter to win tickets to the concert of your choice. They’re also available for purchase here.
