Unless you’re living under a rock, you probably know that in preparation for the new Tool album, the band has decided to make available all of their previously released material on all of the major streaming platforms. Here is the information that was sent our way:
TOOL released Opiate, Undertow, Ænima, Lateralus and 10,000 Days overnight on the various digital service providers (https://smartURL.it/TOOLCatalog).
“Our obsession with, and dream of, a world where BetaMax and Laser Disc rule has ended,” says Maynard James Keenan. “Time for us to move on. But never fear. There’s a brand new thing we think you’re really gonna dig. It’s called Digital Downloads and Streaming. Get ready for the future, folks!”

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)
