Tool‘s upcoming album won’t be here in another 10 days, but according to Metal Sucks, all pre-orders for physical copies are already sold out!
If you try go to the band’s official Fear Inoculum pre-order link and click on Amazon, and you’ll find that the service lists pre-orders of the album on CD as “Currently Unavailable.” Also vinyl pre-orders are not available at all.
If you look for “Independent Record Stores” on the Record Store Day website, you’ll find a disclaimer alerting you that pre-orders are now closed “due to incredible demand.”
Here are screenshots from some more famous shops where the album is also sold out.
Tool will be releasing their long-awaited fifth studio, Fear Inoculum, on August 30th.
