Los Angeles-based prog rock group Tool amassed a rather cultish following in the 1990s with albums like "Undertow" and "Ænima."The band hasn’t released an album of new material since 2006’s "10,000 Days," though there’s buzz that a fifth album is in the works and will be released before the end of the year. See the band — and, perhaps, some new material — when the band’s tour makes it to the Cedar Park Center March 24. Tickets go on sale Friday for $75.
