Tool is about to release a new “expanded book edition” of Fear Inoculum

After a highly successful launch of the insanely complex Fear Inoculum CD package (an built-in HD video screen? C’mon!), you’d think that Tool would follow that up with a standard (and much cheaper) CD edition or a regular vinyl LP. But noooooooo. This is Tool, after all.

Just in time for Christmas–release date is December 13–comes an “expanded book edition” of the album. It includes:

  • 5 x 3D lenticular cards with exclusive graphics,
  • expanded 56 page booklet with additional never-before-seen art
  • a download of the immersive visual experience (video), “Recusant Ad Infinitum,”
  • a CD copy of the album 

Tool diehards will be all over this. Those who haven’t been able to secure a copy of the ultra-deluxe edition–it’s now sold out–will have to make do with this. Pre-order here. Amazon has it for less than CAD$40.

Now. About that vinyl edition…
