Well, it’s been a week since Tool finally released their fifth studio album Fear Inoculum, and we have to say, it’s made quite an impact. It may have taken Thirteen years to arrive but it was worth the wait.
As well as being released digitally, the band’s follow-up to 2006’s 10,000 Days is was also available in deluxe CD packages that contained a speaker and mini screen to watch additional footage –and was priced at around $100, they’re all now sold out!
But wait, the band posted on Instagram, saying that they’re going to make “a small additional quantity” because interest was so high.
“We are excited to announce that due to overwhelming demand for the FEAR INOCULUM deluxe CD package, a small additional quantity is being made,” reads the post. “We are offering a very limited pre-order for this final run of deluxe CD packages, which will be available exclusively via store.toolband.com. For US orders, this offer is available NOW for today only (until 11:59pm ET). For international orders, this offer is available for tomorrow only starting at 1:00pm ET (until 11:59pm ET). Those who pre-order will receive a download of the digital album featuring several bonus tracks. The CD packages should be ready to ship at the end of September.”
Also, check out this stat. Tool has now sold over 200,000 physical copies of Fear Inoculum in the United States alone, this more than triples Taylor Swift’s sales for the same week. BOOM.
