Tool Is Touring This Fall to Support Fear Inoculum

Following the release of their long-awaited fifth studio album Fear Inoculum, Tool have announced a North American tour set to kick off in October. Tickets go on sale Friday, September 6, at 10 a.m. However, a limited number of tickets will be available to Tool Army members on Wednesday, September 4. More information on the Tool Army can be found on the band’s site.

The tour kicks off on October 13 at the Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, California, and continues for the next six weeks before wrapping up in Washington, D.C., on November 25.

Fear Inoculum is Tool’s first new album since 2006’s 10,000 Days and was designated as a 2019 SPIN Essential. SPIN’s review describes Fear Inoculum as an album that continues Tool’s grand tradition of blurring “the lines between art, psychedelia, alt metal, and prog rock with undiminished curiosity and skill.” The album’s lead single and title track became the first 10-minute song to crack the Billboard Hot 100.
