Tool’s “Fear Inoculum” Reaches #1 On Active Rock Chart

“Fear Inoculum,” the title track from Tool’s recently released album, has reached #1 on the Active Rock radio chart, giving the band its fourth career #1 radio single as well as the outfit’s first chart topper in 13 years.

Tool kicked off their North American tour on Sunday night, performing at the Sacramento-based Aftershock Festival, where the Los Angeles-based band performed “Fear Inoculum” for the first time. The sold out trek continues tomorrow night in Denver, as the band plays two shows at the Pepsi Center.

Fear Inoculum arrived on Aug. 30 following years of anticipation. The album debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 and earned heaps of critical praise with NPR saying, “Fear Inoculum was worth the 13 year wait”, Revolver proclaiming the 10-track album “a masterpiece to be dissected for years to come” and Consequence of Sound saying the release finds “Tool in peak performance.”
