Starting in October 2019, Tool will embark on their North American tour with Killing Joke in support of their new album Fear Inoculum. For die-hard fans, seeing Tool live is a very big deal. So much that a 12-year-old student from Louisiana has received permission from their band teacher to miss class for this very reason.

In a post to the Tool subreddit, the student's father shared a screenshot of an email his wife received from their son's band teacher, granting him permission to miss class to attend Tool's concert. 

“If there is, TOOL is a GOOD reason to miss it,” the teacher responded. “My only response, take me with you guys!”

“I am super jealous that he will have the opportunity and I will not punish him for missing for TOOL,” the teacher added, before asking, “Do you like their new album?”
