If you’re a fool for Tool, the intellectual heavy metal band, you’re in luck. They’ve just released their first single in 13 years and it’s already at number 1. IN fact, “Fear Inoculum” is 10 minutes, 22 seconds. So crazy!
On top of that, Tool is now occupying a huge chunk of the iTunes albums and singles charts with old releases. They’ve got five singles in the top 10, and five albums in the top 20. They knocked Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” off the top spot, which means Lil Nas is going to make a remix with them! (Just kidding.)
The “Fear Inoculum” album is coming, too. And it has a wild cover that includes an HD screen and speakers. (I don’t know how that will work!)
It’s a little unclear if Tool is on a label. Their own label, Volcano, is part of Epic/Sony, so maybe that’s it. Their old albums are on Sony Legacy. If so, Sylvia Rhone is going to have a great August!
