TOOL's fifth album, "Fear Inoculum", arrived on August 30 via RCA. The 85-minute collection was produced by TOOL, with Joe Barresi engineering and mixing the release. Barresi also worked with the band on "10,000 Days".
The physical edition of the album includes seven songs, while the digital edition contains 10 cuts, including the closer "7empest", which is almost 20 minutes long.
As previously reported, the "Fear Inoculum" title track recently became the longest song to ever land in the Billboard Hot 100. The TOOL cut, which entered the chart at No. 93, has a running time of 10 minutes 21 seconds, 24 seconds longer than the previous record holder, David Bowie's "Blackstar".
