Rock band Tool is making news on several fronts this week. After announcing a new album (their first since 2006), titled Fear Inoculum and out August 30, they also announced their entire back catalog will be available on digital streaming services as of Friday, August 2nd. Until August 1, the only way to get your hands on their four previous albums is CD and vinyl, though I seem to remember having at least Undertow on cassette at one point. Frontman Maynard James Keenan was on Joe Rogan’s podcast where he talked about the new album and the decision to join streaming services. You can watch the full interview below, but know that every possible warning about NSFW content should be applied.

    It seems almost charming that Tool rebelled against iTunes so many years ago (even if their related bands were on iTunes anyway.)

    I’m not sure which band said “Well it’s our career, so we can destroy it if we want to.” I appreciate the sentiment, as it reaffirms the autonomy of artists. 😉

    I guess they figured since they’re wrapping up construction on the Arizona Bay studio it was time to go digital. Learn to swim ; )
