Since its release in August, Tool's Fear Inoculum has been an undisputed smash success. The 80-plus-minute record — the psychedelic prog band's first offering in 13 years — debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and, according to Billboard, had the biggest week for any rock LP in over 12 months. (It also made headlines for bumping Taylor Swift's Lover from the top spot in that record's second week.) The first pressing of the album's deluxe physical edition sold out almost immediately, compelling the band to produce a second, limited run of the collectible, which includes a speaker and mini video screen built into the packaging. That quickly sold out, as well, but never fear if you missed out: Today, November 13th, Tool announced an entirely new collector's edition of Fear Inoculum, an "Expanded Book Edition," due for release on December 13th. Scant details have been unveiled about the product, but according to it's Amazon description, it retails for $34.98 and will include "five 3D lenticular cards featuring exclusive graphics, 56 page booklet with additional art and an access card to download the groundbreaking immersive visual experience, 'Recusant Ad Infinitum.'" You can pre-order your copy now — you know these will sell out fast.
