Dublin-based drill crew A92 have released new single ‘Who’s On Who’. Their debut mixtape is set for release in September.



Tool have announced that they are cancelling all their remaining tour dates, rather than attempting to reschedule, so that fans can get a refund while the length of the COVID-19 shutdown remains unknown. “We could continue to postpone or reschedule dates for some time into 2021, but ethically we do not think this is the right course of action. In our opinion, tying up our fans’ money for months, if not a full year, is unfair”, they said in a statement.
