See Tool Play "Pneuma," "Fear Inoculum" Live For First Time at Aftershock

Prog-metal's titans gave two new songs their onstage debuts at Cali fest

Buoyed by critical and commercial success of their first album in 13 years, Fear Inoculum, Tool have hit the road again, prefacing their imminent North American tour (which kicks off Tuesday, October 15th) with an epic headlining performance at Sacramento's Aftershock festival. Fear Inoculum not only debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. albums chart, but also, according to Billboard, had the biggest week for any rock album in over one year and, notably, bumped Taylor Swift out of the top spot in the process.

Ahead of the LP's release, Tool had been playing two new songs, "Invincible" and "Descending" live; at Aftershock, they gave two other Fear Inoculum cuts their live debuts, "Pneuma" and the title track. Fans responded, of course, by raising their cellphones to capture the momentous performances for posterity. Check out some of the higher quality videos above and below.
