Who Are Tool?

Los Angeles-based rock outfit Tool emerged in the early 1990s with the released of their heavy metal debut album Undertow in 1993. The group would go on to establish themselves as a true force within the alt-metal world with their wildly successful sophomore release Ænima three years later, taking a deeper dive into experimentation and scoring two Grammy Awards for Best Metal Performance and Best Recording Package. Their third album, Lateralus, arrived in 2001, debuting at the number one spot on the Billboard 200 and earning the group their third Grammy Award for the hit track “Schism,” followed by 10,000 Days in 2006. The album would serve as Tool’s final release in over a decade, when Fear Inoculum finally arrived in 2019.

Tool’s distinct use of visual arts, lyrical rants, and complex releases places their music in a category all its own, with many describing them as a style-transcending act. The band was famously one of the last major digital streaming holdouts, uploading their entire catalog to streaming platforms in the summer of 2019. The move resulted in massive success as the band became the first act to ever own all Top 10 spots on Billboard’s Digital Rock Songs Sales chart, with each of their albums in the Top 20 on the Billboard 200.
