Rock act Tool breaks a five-year silence this week with its new Volcano album, "10,000 Days."

Rock act Tool breaks a five-year silence this week with its new Volcano album, "10,000 Days." Despite its seven-minute running time, first single "Vicarious" has exploded out of the gate at radio, debuting this week at No. 2 on Billboard's Modern Rock chart and No. 3 on the Mainstream Rock tally.

"10,000 Days" is the follow-up to 2001's "Lateralus," which debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 2.3 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

True to form, the 11-track "10,000 Days" sports a number of epic tunes, particularly "Rosetta Stoned" and "10,000 Days (Wings Pt. 2)," both of which clock in at 11:14. Near the end of the disc are the substantially lengthy "Intension" (7:21) and "Right in Two" (8:56).

Tool played its first U.S. show since late 2002 over the weekend at California's Coachella Festival. A North American tour begins Tuesday (May 2) in Seattle, to be followed by a European jaunt.
