Tool have finally made their entire back catalog available on digital services after years of being hounded by fans. The breadcrumbs for Tool's arrival on all digital and streaming platforms have been out there for months, from the creation of their Spotify and Apple Music accounts, to Redditors pointing out that YouTube had begun picking up on their music from said streaming platforms.
Now they're here, and you can stream it all in full below! Tool's choices for their new digital presence are their 1992 EP Opiate (which has new artwork now), as well as all four current full-length records – Undertow from 1993, Ænima from 1996, Lateralus from 2001, and 10,000 Days from 2006. A single from Fear Inoculum is expected soon. In the meantime, you can listen to the live bootlegs of both "Invincible" and "Descending".

Tool has also officially announced their long-awaited new album Fear Inoculum to be out on August 30. No new music has been officially released. In the meantime, you can listen to the live bootlegs of both "Invincible" and "Descending".
Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan guested on the The Joe Rogan Experience podcast and talked a little bit about the album and why it took so long.
Keenan said the main reason for the delays boiled down to people not wanting to compromise on anything throughout the process, and he's just happy that the album is done and ready to be released.
"Fuck, what a weight lifted off my chest. It took a lot of work. The four of us are a lot of fucking work just to get anywhere. Oh my God — everything's a fucking committee meeting and always gets shot down."
He also elaborated a little more on the delays later in the conversation.
"Success. When you get successful, you think you're right about everything. You're pretty sure as that individual, 'I am right and you are wrong.' I'm successful and we're successful because of me, not because of you. 'It's not that bad with us… There's a dynamic of, 'I want this and I've always gotten my way and that's why we're successful, because I don't compromise.'"
