Tool have ramped up excitement for Fear Inoculum’s 30 August release with an Instagram post previewing the album’s artwork.

Clicking play on the video post reveals a metallic-coloured vortex moving in a wave-like manner. Tool also captioned the post with details about their forthcoming album’s release, stating that its title track and pre-orders will arrive on 7 August.

Speculation about the prog-metal veterans’ long-anticipated new material has gained traction ever since the group announced the album on Instagram last week. The first murmurs of Fear Inoculum, however, date back to May, when fan-shot footage of live performances of Descending and Invincible surfaced on YouTube. Both tracks are rumoured to feature on the upcoming album.
