Next summer's Rock on the Range bill has been released, and psychotropic rockers Tool top the lineup. Avenged Sevenfold and Alice in Chains join them in the large print, as well.

The Tool booking continues Rock on the Range's trend of upping the ante each year. Last year featured Metallica and Soundgarden at the top of the bill; the latter was replaced, however, with a Chris Cornell tribute set after the singer passed away in Detroit right before the festival in Ohio.

Rock on the Range runs from May 18-20 at MAPFRE Stadium in Columbus.
