Title: Tool – Fear Inoculum Format: 5 LP vinyl box set Label: Sony Cat Num: Barcode: 194398687919
Release date: April 8th 2022
The eagerly-awaited vinyl version of TOOL’s critically-acclaimed fifth
album, Fear Inoculum, arrives on April 8 via RCA Records, with the GRAMMY®-Award winning
release spread over 5 LPs and paired with new, extensive artwork.
Adam Jones reconceptualized the already impressive album packaging with each of the 180g vinyl
discs emblazoned with a unique etching and accompanied by an elaborate pictorial booklet including
never-before-seen artwork. The limited-edition set, which also features a new cover, is housed in a
hard shell box.
TOOL has consistently elevated the concept of album art, from the groundbreaking Fear Inoculum
CD release fronted by a 4” HD rechargeable screen with exclusive video footage (“Recusant Ad
Infinitum”) to 10,000 Days’ integrated stereoscopic lenses to Ænima’s lenticular jewel case, Jones
has pushed the boundaries of what is possible. He has been twice nominated in the GRAMMY®-
Awards Best Recording Package category, taking home the trophy in 2007 for 10,000 Days.
