Tool To Release Ultra Deluxe Vinyl Edition Of “Fear Inoculum” In April

Tool will be releasing a limited edition ultra deluxe vinyl edition of their latest album “Fear Inoculum” on April 8. Pre-orders can be found HERE.

The band shared the following information on the set:

“The eagerly-awaited vinyl version of TOOL’s critically-acclaimed fifth album, Fear Inoculum, arrives on April 8 via RCA Records, with the GRAMMY®-Award winning release spread over 5 LPs and paired with new, extensive artwork. Pre-orders are available now via the link in our bio.

Guitarist Adam Jones reconceptualized the already stunning album packaging with each of the 180g vinyl discs emblazoned with music playable on the A-side (see tracklist below), beautiful etching on a non-playable B-side and accompanied by an elaborate pictorial booklet including never-before-seen artwork. The limited-edition set, which also features a new cover and high-quality foil, is housed in a hard shell box.

The labor of love featured a team of artists and designers who worked in tandem with Jones: Mackie Osborne (@mackieoh), Deborah Sheedy (@deborahsheedy), Alex Grey (@alexgreycosm), Joyce Su (@joycesu), Sean Cheetham (@seancheetham) and many others.

TOOL has consistently elevated the concept of album art, from the groundbreaking Fear Inoculum CD release fronted by a 4” HD rechargeable screen with exclusive video footage (“Recusant Ad Infinitum”) to 10,000 Days’ integrated stereoscopic lenses to Ænima’s lenticular jewel case, Jones has pushed the boundaries of what is possible. He has been twice nominated in the GRAMMY®-Awards Best Recording Package category, taking home the trophy in 2007 for 10,000 Days.

Fear Inoculum Ultra Deluxe vinyl tracklisting:

Disc 1: “Fear Inoculum” and “Pneuma”

Disc 2: “Invincible”

Disc 3: “Legion Inoculant” and “Descending”

Disc 4: “Culling Voices” “Chocolate Chip Trip”

Disc 5: “7empest” and “Mockingbeat””

Rush’s “Moving Pictures” To Receive 40th Anniversary Expanded Reissue In April

More details on the various configurations were shared on rush.com:

“The Super Deluxe Edition includes three CDs, one Blu-ray Audio disc, and five high-quality 180-gram black vinyl LPs. The set encompasses the Abbey Road Mastering Studios 2015 remastered edition of the album for the first time on CD, along with two discs of previously unreleased and newly restored bonus live content newly mixed from the original analog live multi-tracks by Rush’s original producer, Terry Brown, featuring the band’s complete, unreleased Toronto concert from Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto, Ontario, on March 25, 1981 (designated here as “Live In YYZ 1981”). The fourth bonus disc is a Blu-ray Audio disc with the core album newly mixed from the original multi-tracks in Dolby Atmos (a Rush catalog first!), Dolby TrueHD 5.1, and DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround sound as done by noted producer/engineer Richard Chycki, alongside the previously available PCM Stereo mix. Also included on the Blu-ray are four bonus videos: a brand-new video for “YYZ” plus three remastered vintage promo videos for “Tom Sawyer,” “Limelight,” and “Vital Signs.” Additionally, all of the vinyl in the Super Deluxe Edition has been cut via half-speed Direct to Metal Mastering (DMM) (another Rush catalog first!) on five 180-gram audiophile LPs.

The Super Deluxe Edition of Moving Pictures-40th Anniversary will also include several exclusive items, including a 44-page hardcover book with unreleased photos and new artwork by original album designer Hugh Syme, along with new illustrations for each song; extensive liner notes by Kim Thayil (guitarist, Soundgarden), Les Claypool (bassist/vocalist, Primus), Taylor Hawkins (drummer, Foo Fighters), Bill Kelliher (guitarist, Mastodon), and Neil Sanderson (drummer, Three Days Grace); a Red Barchetta model car mounted on a black perch with an MP40 nameplate; two Neil Peart signature MP40 branded drumsticks; two metal-embossed guitar picks, one each with Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson’s respective signatures engraved on them; a replica of the Moving Pictures 1981 official tour program; an MP40 logo enamel pin; a 3D lenticular “Moving Pictures in motion” lithograph; an 18×24-inch Toronto 1981 concert poster; a replica concert ticket from the 1981 Maple Leaf Gardens show; a 12×36-inch Rush Through The Years 1973-1981 poster; a YYZ luggage tag; and a All Access World Tour ’81 insert. All contents are housed in a premium lift-top box, which features movingly reimagined cover artwork by Hugh Syme.

The second configuration of Moving Pictures-40th Anniversary will be released in a three-CD Deluxe Edition digipak that includes the newly remastered original album on CD 1 and the entire, unreleased 1981 Toronto concert on CDs 2 and 3. Extras include a 24-page booklet with unreleased photos and reimagined artwork by Syme, along with the aforementioned liner notes by Kim Thayil, Les Claypool, Taylor Hawkins, Bill Kelliher, and Neil Sanderson.

The third Moving Pictures configuration will be offered as a five-LP Deluxe Edition, all of it housed in a slipcase including a single-pocket jacket for the remastered original Moving Pictures on LP 1, and two gatefold jackets for LPs 2-5 that comprise all 19 tracks from the complete, unreleased Live In YYZ 1981 concert. As noted above, all vinyl has been cut for the first time ever via half-speed Direct to Metal Mastering (DMM) on 180-gram black audiophile vinyl. Extras include a 24-page booklet with unreleased photos, Syme’s reimagined artwork and new illustrations, and the complete liner notes.

The fourth configuration is a one-LP eCommerce exclusive edition, featuring the first-ever half-speed DMM vinyl pressing. It comes newly wrapped in a limited-edition premium tip-on style gatefold jacket with printed sleeve, and each pressing comes with one of six randomly inserted Neil Peart hand-drawn lyrics sheets.

The fifth configuration, the Deluxe Digital Edition, features the original album and all 19 bonus live performances from Toronto, and is the digital equivalent to the three-CD Deluxe Edition.

Finally, the sixth configuration, the Dolby Atmos Digital Edition, is the digital equivalent of Richard Chycki’s masterful Atmos mix of all seven tracks from the original album.”

ERRA Premiere “Nigh To Silence” Music Video

ERRA have premiered a new video for their new song “Nigh To Silence.” This track is from the new deluxe edition of the band’s self-titled album, which will be released on March 18.

Vocalist Jesse Cash commented:

“During the end of 2020 and the start of 2021, we tried to take advantage of not being able to tour and having extra time at home. So while we were rolling out singles and announcing our self-titled record, we were also in the studio recording some new songs for a deluxe edition of the record. This was our favorite of the bunch.”

“The song is set on an empty earth observed by the moon. I intended to express as much loneliness as I could. Then, I thought of ‘walking in the shadow of my own ghost,’ which felt like the loneliest visual I could muster. I wrote the first line about how the process of writing music feels and my deeply internal fear of being forgotten or irrelevant: ‘Floating song, I caught in a dream and passed it on. Frail and fragile is the ghost that I will carry and time will swallow.’”

“Creative ideas seemingly spring up out of nowhere, are nurtured into complete works, and once that is done, I immediately begin moving on to the next thing, to the degree that by the time the song is out and people are hearing it for the first time, I’ve already kind of said my goodbye, mourned its loss, and moved on from it entirely.

This always feels sad, but also cathartic to hand the song over to the listeners and relinquish ownership of it. It feels necessary for me to grow as a musician and as a person, to constantly acknowledge a lack of ownership over anything but myself. It was really special for me to finally write a song about the quiet poignancy of writing songs themselves, and ‘Nigh To Silence‘ has become one of my favorites.”

Guns N’ Roses Planning 30th Anniversary Deluxe Reissue Of “Use Your Illusion”

It looks like Guns N’ Roses have a 30th anniversary deluxe reissue of “Use Your Illusion” in the works. Slash recently confirmed the news to Biff Bam Pop!.

Slash said the following:

“It got delayed by the pandemic but it is coming out, I think this summer. There’s a bunch of cool live stuff on it — a couple shows. The Ritz [in New York City] from the ’90s, like early ’90s, and a show that we did in Las Vegas back in 1989, I think it was. And it’s actually the show that I met my ex-wife at, so I was really hard-pressed to even do the fucking record.”

Blabbermouth also shared more info on the shows that the guitarist mentioned:

“Slash was apparently referencing the last of the three warm-up shows GUNS N’ ROSES booked at the Ritz in New York prior to embarking on its “Use Your Illusion” tour in 1991. The May 16, 1991 concert was notable for being the night singer Axl Rose broke a foot after taking a flying leap during the band’s performance of “You Could Be Mine”.

As for the Las Vegas show that is included in the set, Slash was apparently talking about the January 25, 1992 performance at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, which is where he and his now-ex-wife Perla Ferrar first met.”
