Watch Tool Play "Culling Voices" Live for First Time

Danny Carey took up guitar to open meditative 'Fear Inoculum' cut

Tool had a surprise for fans in Sacramento. The prog-metal juggernaut hit the city's Golden 1 Center on Saturday, January 15th — which happened to be guitarist Adam Jones' birthday — and during their encore, they performed "Culling Voices" for the first time ever. The Fear Inoculum cut is one of the 2019 album's more meditative songs, and Tool opened it in an unusual formation: the whole band seated at the front of the stage and drummer Danny Carey joining Jones on guitar. About a third of the way through, the quarter returned their usual positions for song's heavier concluding sections, then they ended the show with "Invincible," the go-to closer on Tool's 2022 tour so far.

The following night (Sunday, January 16th), at the Chase Center in San Francisco, Tool included "Culling Voices" in the setlist again, so hopefully for attendees of coming dates, it will remain a live staple for the rest of the run. The group's Fear Inoculum tour is set to continue Tuesday, January 18th, in Anaheim, California. See the full remaining U.S. itinerary below.
