Tool's first album in 13 years, Fear Inoculum, is officially set to come out on August 30, and now the first taste of the album is here: the 10+ minute title track. This one leans more on their melodic, atmospheric, psychedelic side than their metal side, and that's not a bad thing at all. Listen below!

The new 85-minute album was produced by Tool, and engineered and mixed by Joe Barresi, who also worked on 10,000 Days. Here's more via press release:

Continuing their affinity for pushing the boundaries of physical packaging, the GRAMMY Award® winning outfit has created a deluxe, limited-edition CD version of Fear Inoculum. The collectible offering, which was conceived by and directed by Adam Jones, features a 4” HD rechargeable screen with exclusive video footage, charging cable, 2 watt speaker, a 36-page booklet and a digital download card. Pre-orders for both the special package and digital downloads are available now. A vinyl release will be announced soon.

Last Friday, Tool's back catalog finally hit streaming services for the first time. You can read our Tool album guide while you dig in.
