This also means that the band's albums will be available to purchase on the iTunes Music Store and other digital music stores. In the announcement tweet, the band shared a video that included previous albums like Lateralus and Opiate, along with an image of the August 2 streaming date.

Tool also announced the name of its next album, Fear Inoculum, which will release on August 30.


Tool is one of the latest bands to finally allow its music to be available on streaming platforms. Over the years, streaming platforms like ‌Apple Music‌ have gained music from The Beatles and Def Leppard, after years of users being unable to stream their music.

Tool sucks. They had one good song, Schism, and it still sucks.
I’ll refute your incorrect comment with a disgusting bass line in a solid song.

I especially love the transition from Parabol to Parabola on the Lateralus album. Oh and Triad rips too. Hell, I love their whole catalog!

Tool is my top favorite band of all and I'm just happy they're releasing a new album next month.

I don't really care that they're finally coming to streaming services since I own all of their albums already. But if it helps them get more sales, then cool.
