Tool Has Finally Made Their Iconic Music Videos Available Online
Today, the public has been graced with Tool’s new album Fear Inoculum, which arrives a full 13 years after the alt-metal band’s last release, 10,000 Days. The record can be streamed or downloaded via all major digital platforms, marking a reversal in long-time policy for the band, which began with their previous discography hitting streaming services for the first time at the beginning of this month.
To coincide with the long-anticipated release of Fear Inoculum, the band has also made another important part of their corpus easy to access: their iconic, unsettling, and stop-motion-filled music videos. Tool has uploaded seven previously unavailable hi-def clips to their official YouTube channel: the visual treatments for “Vicarious,” “Stinkfist,” “Prison Sex,” “Parabola,” “Ænema,” “Schism,” and “Sober.” (Sorry, “Hush” fans, that one doesn’t appear to be available yet.)
Following the release of Tool’s pre-Fear-Inoculum discography to streaming services, all four of the band’s full-length albums charted in the Top 20 of the Billboard album chart. “Fear Inoculum,” the new album’s sole pre-release single, also made chart history by becoming the first song longer than 10 minutes to crack the Hot 100.
