This year has proven to be a massive year for Tool, with news just in overnight that Fear Inoculum – Tool’s first new record in 13 years – has earned the band two 2020 Grammy nominations: Best Metal Performance for “7empest” and Best Rock Song for the album’s title track. Tool are already three-time winners, having won trophies for: Best Metal Performance in 1997 and 2001 for Ænima and “Schism,” and Best Recording Package in 2006 for 10,000 Days.

The Grammy noms come off the back of a massive 24 hours for the band Down Under, as pre-sale demand from Frontier Members saw all available pre-sale tickets in Australia and New Zealand snapped up at a rapid pace. As a result, second dates have been added to the original run in Melbourne, Auckland and now Sydney.
