The digital debut comes as anticipation for TOOL’s fifth album, Fear Inoculum (RCA Records), builds. On the outfit’s recent North American and European tours, the Los Angeles-based band projected the album’s release date, Aug. 30, from the stage, while playing two new songs from the forthcoming collection: “Invincible” and “Descending.”
TOOL formed in 1990, releasing four multi-platinum studio albums: Undertow (1993), Ænima (1996), Lateralus (2001) and 10,000 Days (2006); two EPs: 72826 (1991) and Opiate (1992) and the limited-edition boxset Salival (2000). The band has won three GRAMMY Awards®: Best Metal Performance (1998, “Ænima”), Best Metal Performance (2002, “Schism”) and Best Recording Package (2007, 10,000 Days). TOOL is Danny Carey (drums), Justin Chancellor (bass), Adam Jones (guitar) and Maynard James Keenan (vocals)

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So that’s some news that should make the Tool fans of the world pretty happy right? I’m glad that the band finally decided to put their catalog on the digital providers because let’s face it, there isn’t any physical music in the Best Buys of the world and who knows how much longer places like Barnes and Noble or Walmart will be stocking it. I still love to buy physical music but it’s a rare thing for me to buy an album these days since I am trying my best to downsize a little bit. I’ll close up now since its late and I’ve a busy day tomorrow but before I go I wonder what you think of this news and will you be purchasing the albums via iTunes or Amazon.com soon or just be content with listening to them care of Spotify. You can chime in down below and know that if you order anything through our Amazon.com codes we get a light stipend from them as a thank you. It helps keep the lights on and what better way to help than with this monumental news. See you later.
