Start saving your pocket money, because metal icons Tool are set to release a deluxe edition of their long-awaited fifth album, Fear Inoculum.
When Tool announced the release of their long-awaited fifth album, Fear Inoculum, back in August, fans just about lost their minds.
To complement this news, the band also revealed that they would be releasing a deluxe limited edition physical version of the album, staying true to their reputation of amazing album packaging.
Conceived by guitarist Adam Jones, the collectible package featured a 4” HD rechargeable screen with exclusive video footage, charging cable, 2 watt speaker, a 36-page booklet, and a digital download card.
Understandably, this package was in high demand, with folks from all over the world checking behind the couch cushions for enough funds to purchase this amazing release. As you’d expect though, an initial pressing sold out fast, with a second lot being prepped to cover demand.
Now though, Tool have announced a new item for the hardcore fans to get their hands on, revealing a deluxe edition of the record today.

Described as an “expanded book edition”, the new version is really a necessity for those who like how their collections look, with artwork being the main focus of the new release.
Featuring the original CD edition of the album, it also includes five 3D lenticular cards with exclusive graphics, an 56 page booklet with additional artwork, and a download for the ‘Recusant Ad Infinitum’ video, which played on the standard edition’s video screens.
If you’re keen to have another new piece of Tool merch under the Christmas tree later this year, you can pre-order your copy now, though there’s no word if any local retailers will manage to have any in stock.
In related news, Tool look set to announce their first Australian tour since 2014 on Friday. Following a cryptic message from Frontier Touring and a countdown clock that expires later this week, the metal masters are gearing up to grace us with their presence once again.
