American rock band Tool has unveiled the first new track, "Fear Inoculum", in 13 years. The song will appear on the upcoming same-named album.
The 10-track "Fear Inoculum" comes out 13 years after the release of Tool’s last album "10,000 Days". The record is currently available for pre-order on all popular online services.
"Fear Inoculum" is expected to include the songs "Descending" and "Invincible", which the band has performed live at their last concerts. The record release is scheduled for August 30, 2019.
Tool's new album was reportedly produced by Joe Barresi, and mastered by Bob Ludwig, who previously worked on "10,000 Days". Recording commenced in March 2018, with drummer Danny Carey laying down his tracks first and bassist Justin Chancellor recording his parts next.
In July, Tool's legendary 1991 demo tape, titled "72826", surfaced on YouTube, Apple Music, Google Play and Pandora. It marked the first time a Tool release had been available to stream online. On August 2, the remaining releases of the band also became available on streaming platforms.
