toolfearinoculumbanner 750x422 - TOOL Releases "Fear Inoculum", Their First New Track Since 10,000 DAYS

Prog rock/metal titans Tool have released the title track from their upcoming album Fear Inoculum, which will be coming out later this month on August 30. The first new official release since the band’s last album, 10,000 Days, “Fear Inoculum” clocks in at just over 10 minutes. It’s a more brooding, slower track that definitely sees the band venture into new territories while still embodying the very traits that make them so fascinating. You can listen to the track below.

Pre-orders for the album are available now. It looks like the album will be primarily made available digitally but there will be a limited edition CD package, which will include, “…a tri-fold Soft Pack Video Brochure featuring a 4″ HD rechargeable screen with exclusive video footage, a USB charging cable, a 2 watt speaker and a 36 page insert book and MP3 download card.”

Here are the lyrics:

Immunity long overdue
Contagion I exhale you
Lying I opened up to you
Venom in mania

Now, contagion I exhale you

The deceiver he says you belong to me
You don’t want to breathe the light of the others
Fear the light
Fear the breathe
Fear the others for eternity
But I hear them now inhale the clarity
Hear the venom, the venom in what you say — inoculated
Bless this immunity
Bless this immunity
Bless this immunity

Exhale, expel
Recast my tale
Weave my allegorical elegy

All that I’m to do
Calculating steps away from you
My own mitosis
Growing through delusion from mania

Exhale, expel
Recast my tale with my allegorical elegy

Forfeit all control
You poison
You spectacle

Exorcise the spectacle
Exorcise the malady
Exorcise the disparate
Poison for eternity
Purge me and evacuate
The venom and the fear that binds me

Unveil now
Lift away
I see you running
Deceiver chased away
A long time coming
