My post this morning focused on the title of the new Tool album Fear Inoculum, but in my haste to get to work had no chance to present the other big news from this morning. Confirmed by Maynard via Tool’s social media accounts – their back catalog will be available on streaming services this Friday the 2nd of August.
It wasn’t explicitly mentioned which ones, but it would be reasonable to assume that the big names in this industry – Spotify, Google Play Music, Apple Music – all would be included. I also wonder if their demo 72826 and Salival will also be available?
In case you missed it, Maynard had a chat with Joe Rogan today, during which he announced Fear Inoculum and this streaming news. This was covered in the first 10 minutes (15 if you include all the advertising) before the conversation largely moved to other areas. I always find it interesting listening to Maynard chat, but if you have no patience for interviews where the focus largely isn’t Tool, then proceed no further.
