Tool and Frontier Touring have announced the band will perform in arenas across Australia and New Zealand in February 2020 — their first shows in both countries in seven years. The tour comes off the back of the band’s critically-acclaimed fifth studio album, and their first new record in 13 years, the No. 1 ARIA album “Fear Inoculum”. The band is on tour in the USA, Danny Carey (drums), Justin Chancellor (bass), Adam Jones (guitar) and Maynard James Keenan’s (vocals) putting on their customary visual and auditory tour de force concert events.
Released in August, “Fear Inoculum” debuted at No. 1 in Australia and New Zealand (the band’s third consecutive No. 1 album in both countries) — with No. 1 debut position also in Canada, Norway, and Belgium. In the USA, the band knocked Taylor Swift off the top spot and sold 270,000 units in its first week alone.
Yesterday, the band announced the December 13 release of an expanded book edition of “Fear Inoculum”, which includes 5 x 3D lenticular cards with exclusive graphics, an expanded 56-page booklet, a download of the groundbreaking immersive visual experience (video) “Recusant Ad Infinitum” and a CD.
