Tool has revealed that Fear Inoculum will be the title of the band’s long-awaited fifth studio album. The name of the LP, which is due out August 30th, was unveiled on Monday in an Instagram post. The disc will follow up 2006’s 10,000 Days. A full track list and first single for the LP has yet to be unveiled, although the band has been playing two songs, reportedly titled “Descending” and “Invincible,” during its recent live shows. Both tracks are expected to show up on Fear Inoculum. The band revealed in a second post that its entire recorded catalog will be available on digital and streaming services beginning this Friday. All four previous studio LPs and the band’s 1992 debut EP, Opiate, will be available. Tool was one of the last holdouts in the music business to keep all its music out of the digital realm. Earlier in the month, Tool’s legendary 1991 demo tape, titled 72826, surfaced on YouTube, Apple Music, Google Play and Pandora. It marked the first time a Tool release had been available to stream online and led to speculation that the rest of the catalog would follow.
