Tool Announce The Title Of Their New Album

It looks like Tool's long-awaited new album will, in fact, actually be arriving at the end of the month. The band have not only revealed a new logo for the record, they've now revealed the title.

Tool's new album will be called Fear Inoculum. The band announced this via their Instagram today:

On top of that, in a different post, the band has also announced that their back catalog will finally hit streaming services this Friday:

Frontman Maynard James Keenan had previously spoken to Kerrang! about how much speculation there is surrounding his work -- not just with Tool, but also A Perfect Circle and Puscifer -- and how people seem to want him to tell them that their theories about the meanings behind his works are correct.

“Yes and I’m not going to do that (laughs), and that’s mainly because there isn’t just one explanation,” he said. “Some things are subjective, and some things are not. Some things are logical: take a step back, take away all the grandiose stuff and the idol-worship part, and look at something practically and you’ll come up with an answer that’s fucking reasonable – rather than this crazed Twitterverse of horseshit. Shut the door to the shit room.”

When asked about his creative process and if it compares to working on the layouts for pet shops (something he used to do as a job) or making wine, he explained: “All of the answers to those kinds of questions are about being conscious and aware, and ready to respond according to the situation. It’s about being connected enough in a pet store to understand, ‘We could probably sell more shit if we put this at the back.’ I didn’t just come in one day and say, ‘Hey! Put this back there – it’s an idea I have!’ You have to be there to witness people come in to the front of the store and realise they never see another aisle.

“When you’re planting grapes and realising that it’s colder than it is hot, it’s going to be more about avoiding cold and moisture than it is heat. It’s a conscious decision that you have to be present for and pay attention. If you’re not, you’re going to miss it.”
