Fear Inoculum was released on August 30th, marking the progressive metal band’s first album in 13 years. The LP debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, moving 270,000 equivalent album units in its first week of release. It also recently landed on our list of the Top 25 Metal Albums of the 2010s.
The expanded book edition will arrive on December 13th, and include a standard CD of the album; five lenticular 3D cards with exclusive graphics; an expanded 56-page booklet with additional never-before-seen art; and a download of the immersive visual experience “Recusant Ad Infinitum”.
Pre-orders for the Fear Inoculum expanded book edition are available through Amazon ($34.98) and local record stores.
The release will come in between two North American legs of Tool’s tour. The band is currently on the road through a November 25th show in Washington, DC, and will kick off the next leg on January 10th in San Diego, California. See the full itinerary below, and pick up tickets here.
