Tomorrow: The Making of Tool’s Fear Inoculum Revealed On Our New Podcast

On the latest episode of our podcast Inside Track, Tool tell us how they produced the most anticipated album of 2019.

It’s rare that one gets to watch rock history in the making — but in 2019, the world witnessed a timeless event in the form of Tool releasing their long-awaited new album Fear Inoculum. That the album was loved by fans was somewhat of a given; that it unseated Taylor Swift at the #1 spot on the Billboard 2000 chart said something vital and important about the state of rock and metal music at the turn of this decade. Right before our eyes, Fear Inoculum became a new piece of rock mythology, a game-changing event against which other albums will be held for ages.

On the latest episode of our new podcast Inside Track, we spoke to members of Tool — as well as Fear Inoculum producer Joe Barresi — about the creation of this massive album. The band discuss their process leading up to Fear Inoculum, the ridiculous amount of anticipation leading up to the album’s release, and how they structured the album to keep it equally entertaining and epic.
