TOOL begins a two-night stint in Toronto this evening, during its extensive, sold-out North American tour. The trek, which sees the band performing in some cities for the first time in over a decade, has received widespread accolades, with the Los Angeles Times calling it "impeccable," the Chicago Tribune describing the outing as a "twisting multimedia rollercoaster of a concert" and The Arizona Republic saying it's "a visually breathtaking night of dystopian art-rock spectacle."
Released 13 years after its predecessor, "Fear Inoculum" debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart. The effort shifted approximately 270,000 equivalent album units in its first week of release, with 248,000 of those in traditional album sales.
"Fear Inoculum"'s first-week numbers made it the biggest debut for any rock album to be released in over a year.
In its second week of release, "Fear Inoculum" fell from No. 1 to No. 7, with 38,000 equivalent album units earned (down 86%).
