It’s finally happening! No really, it’s happening. “Tool” have returned with their first piece of new music since their last album 10,000 Days, which came out 13 years ago. The track is titled “Fear Inoculum,” and it’s the title track of their upcoming album set to be released on August 30th. The 10 minute song sounds very much like a Tool song. It’s heavy, drony, tribal, and epic. Would you expect any less from Tool? It’s been a big year for Tool fans. The band’s whole back catalogue is now available on all streaming services AND we’re getting a new album? The memes have officially ended. Tool’s back. You can listen to “Fear Inoculum” below:
Australian Psychedelic/Prog outfit “King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard” took a well deserved break from releasing new music last year, because following a year where a band releases five damn albums that same year, one would assume said band would have to take some time off to recharge their batteries and, you know, sleep. It’s looking like the band have hit another spark of creativity though, because it has just been announced that the band will release a new album titled Fishing for Fishies on April 26th via “Flightless Records.” The album will feature the band’s previously released single “Cyboogie.” Pre-orders begin Wednesday, March 13th.

Canadian “Psychedelic Rock” band “Black Mountain” are back sooner than expected. The band’s last album IV was released three years ago, and considering how big of a gap there was between that album’s predecessor and how busy the members are with other projects, it’s a surprise “Black Mountain” are back so soon, but it’s a pleasant surprise of course. The band will release a new album titled Destroyer on May 24th through “Jagjaguwar,” and today they’ve shared the album’s first single “Future Shade.” About the track, frontman Stephen McBean says “It has a riff that traveled around the world then hit the bong with a chorus a year and a half later. A last attempt at double frosting produced a chorus on chorus death match. Anxiety is the new Heavy Metal.” You can listen to the track below:
