“Fear Inoculum” is Tool’s fifth studio album and first since 2006’s “10,000 Days.”
A news release said the release of the new album caps more than a decade of speculation and anticipation, with confirmation of the release arriving in May as the band flashed “August 30” from the stage while performing two new songs — “Descending” and “Invincible.”
Tool formed in 1990 and released four multiplatinum studio albums: “Undertow” (1993), “Ænima” (1996), “Lateralus” (2001) and “10,000 Days” (2006), plus two EPS and the limited-edition boxset “Salival” (2000). The band, which has won three Grammys, consists of Danny Carey (drums), Justin Chancellor (bass), Adam Jones (guitar) and Maynard James Keenan (vocals).
