The wait for a new Tool album is over, much to the delight of fans around the globe, as well as Maynard James Keenan, who received death threats over the delay. To the delight of fans in North America, the group has just announced a fall tour with Killing Joke.
With the release of the long-waited Fear Inoculum, Tool, one of the last major digital streaming holdouts, uploaded their entire catalog to streaming platforms earlier this summer. It's been a massive success as the band became the first act to ever own all Top 10 spots on Billboard's Digital Rock Songs Sales chart.
There was even a point where each one of Tool's albums was in the Top 20 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Fear Inoculum, Tool's first album in 13 years, dropped today (Aug. 30) and we've prepared your guide of what to expect on your very first listen.
Tickets go on sale Sept. 6 at 10AM local time. A limited number of tickets will be available to Tool Army members on Sept. 4 via Toolband.com.
