Tool announce FEAR INOCULUM

An announcement ahead of Maynard’s Joe Rogan chat gives us the title of thew new Tool album: FEAR INOCULUM

As mentioned in the post, we should be getting further details, including a lead track soon. Unsure if the album title is UPPERCASE only, or if Fear Inoculum is just fine…

Title has yet to sink in with me. What are your thoughts Hellboy?

The title is interesting. It could be referencing the idea of fear in a negative light (Fear is the mind killer) could also be talking about the benefits of fear. Descending seems to be commenting on the need to be afraid of death and extinction (Sound the dread alarm through the primal body) Maybe it’s meant to inoculate us *with* fear instead of from it. It would be very Maynard-like to explore both sides of the concept.

The stylized TOOL as a syringe administering a Fear Inoculum is fucking cool in my opinion.

The new font/logo makes much more sense now that I can see it as a syringe cut in half 🙂

Wow did not notice that until you pointed that out. Good catch! That is really cool.

Opiate, Third Eye, H., Rosetta Stoned, Fear Inoculum,… we’ve seen these drug references before 🙂

Agreed. Nice catch. The design gains some weight for me now.

Someone has folded it in half on reddit and it looks even better with one half on top of the other.
