Yesterday (August 2), TOOL has made their entire catalog available on streaming and digital services, and the very same day all band’s albums ( including the Opiate EP) have entered the iTunes Top 10, while various songs cracked the iTunes Top 10 Songs chart.
“Our obsession with, and dream of, a world where BetaMax and Laser Disc rule has ended,” says singer Maynard James Keenan. “Time for us to move on. But never fear. There’s a brand new thing we think you’re really gonna dig. It’s called digital downloads and streaming. Get ready for the future, folks!”
New TOOL album Fear Inoculum comes out on August 30th.
Maynard James Keenan’s store will be holding a listening party for TOOL‘s new album one day prior the release. The party will take place on Thursday, August 29th from 4 to 6PM at 140 Main Street in Jerome, Arizona.
It is advertised as a free event, “First come – first served. Listen to the new album and reserve your CD for the 8/30 release. We will open an hour early (10AM) for those who reserved a copy of the album.”
