Ladies, gents, and music lover of all ages, Tool have finally confirmed the title for their upcoming new album.
On Monday (July 29), the Los Angeles-founded act confirmed that their fifth studio album will be titled FEAR INOCULUM.
Taking to Instagram, the group posted a short clip (with no audio) which displays the band’s name and the album’s title. The accompanying caption reads: “FEAR INOCULUM, Aug 30th, 2019 Album Art, Lead Track, and Pre-Order info TBA. Thank you for your patience.”
The title reveal comes several months after the group announced the official release date for the at-the-time-still-untitled album. During a show at the Legacy Arena in Alabama in early May, the act unveiled the much-anticipated album’s release date via a short video clip. Soon after the show ended, Tool took to Instagram to make the announcement official.
As of now, it looks like Tool has already treated fans to two songs off the impending release; “Descending” and “Invincible.” Both tracks made their live debuts during Tool’s set at Welcome to Rockville.
FEAR INOCULUM is the band’s first new set of tunes since 2006’s 10,000 Days. That means fans have been waiting for brand new Tool songs for 13 years. 13 YEARS.
Because new music isn’t enough, Tool also revealed that their entire catalog will be available on all digital and streaming services as of this Friday, Aug. 2. The albums include all four of their full-lengths (Undertow, Lateralus, Ænima, and 10,000 Days) and their Opiate EP.
