Tool have become one of the most fascinating bands across all of music. Their discography features a plethora of forward-thinking records, each displaying technically compelling compositions that offer surreal listening experiences. For you Tool die-hards out there, collecting all that the band have to offer may be a dream come true; thing is though, how much are willing to pay for said dream?

As shared via the Tool Instagram page, a new ultra-deluxe LP pressing of the band’s Fear Inoculum will be released; a limited number of these will be available and will be autographed by the band. Per Tool’s Instagram post, which you can find below, they have shared:

“There’s some late breaking news from the band. Having just received their personal allotment of the forthcoming (TBA) FEAR INOCULUM ULTRA DELUXE LP, they were inspired to offer for sale this very limited number of advance pressings to TOOLARMY VIP PACKAGE holders (taking advantage of their early merch access) beginning with tonight’s show in Philadelphia and extending to the remaining shows in Elmont, Newark, Buffalo, Pittsburgh and so forth, or until there are no more available (prior to the worldwide release that’s projected for sometime in April). Furthermore, these early vinyl arrivals (only a tour item for the time being) have been AUTOGRAPHED, adding a personal touch to the cover imagery. The package contains 5 discs of industry best 180g vinyl, with audio tracks on one side and etched art on the reverse of each side of the disc. Though the quantities are very limited, should there be any remaining copies, they will be made available to concert goers at the general merch booth.”


Pretty neat right? Here’s the catch – if you want this – it’s going to run you $180! That seems a tad intense and some Tool fans are not happy about it. But maybe for some of you, there is no price tag on owning such a special piece of Tool music.

Tell us Tool fans, are you going to pick up this ultra-deluxe edition vinyl set?
