    Oh yes, no sampling to mess with the purity of listening to it unheard. I have gotten used to the waiting, now it will be a breeze.

    A concept album revolving around the number "7".

    not too impressed with the font or the cover as a whole really, but the music is what's most important of course...
    waiting until the 30th feels brutal and so far away yet, haha.
    can't wait to hear the album front to back finally!

    Can't say I'm that impressed with this initially, but I'm kinda thinking based on what I've heard that the cover will be an LCD screen with this playing on it and shifting:


    In-motion version at the link here:

    Tool on Instagram: “FEAR INOCULUM. Title Track and Album Pre-Order Wednesday August 7th. Links will be posted tomorrow, Tuesday, August 6th on our Band URL and…”

    Hey, pre-order and title track on Wednesday, alright alright!

    Still don't think that's quite what the album art will be.

    Doesn't look quite right to me either.
    It's possible that this will be the "stock" cover image, while the actual packaging will have additional elements (eg. Lateralus & 10,000 Days).

    When viewed on my phone, the instagram post also states:
    "The Special Packaging version is EPIC"

    This has got to be one of the most anticipated albums of recent times. I just hope it lives up to people’s expectations.

    Excited to preorder this on vinyl! Hopefully this means their back catalog that hasn't been reissued before or for a long time is getting the the vinyl treatment in the not too distant future.

    Hope this won't be ridiculously priced like the reissue of Opiate a few years back. I forget the details but I know it was pricey.

    $125 dollars I think for a single CD with no new music and awesome packaging. Signed by a band member who didn't even perform on it. But it sold out and fetches insane prices these days.

    What is wrong with you? You should be outraged that its nothing like Aenima and rant and rave like an entitled brat. Stop being so rational.

    The CD bundle will include a CD, a tri fold soft pack video brochure featuring a 4 inch HD rechargeable screen with exclusive video footage, charging cable, 2 watt speaker, 30+ page book and a download card.

    Wow, that's honestly nuts, but kinda makes sense given hardly anybody buys standard CDs anymore. I'm intrigued. Wonder how many copies are being made.

    I wonder why the download card?

    Keeping with the theme of 7, I see.

    Reese Why did you say 'Burma'?

    It must have been frustrating that July 7 was before the 10,000 days mark. If only they had planned a little further in advance.

    Sounds like they're taking the Pink Floyd PULSE blinking LED package concept to the next level!
