There are artists who find it difficult to embrace new technologies, as is the case with Tool. The band from Angelina, which has been active since 1990, has sold more than 13 million records, won three Grammy awards and achieved great success around the world, but their discography was not available on any digital platform .

However, they have announced through their Twitter account that all their albums will be available on iTunes and Apple Music , as well as other streaming music services.
Already in 2017 it was rumored that the band would publish their work on digital streaming platforms, but it will not be, finally, until Friday August 2 when their fans can buy ‘Undertow’, ‘âima’ or ‘Lateralus’ on iTunes or listen to them on Apple Music or Spotify.
This “digitalisation” comes just as the band also announces that their new album, ‘Fear inoculum’ , will be released on 30 August, the first work of the band after a 13-year hiatus. The reason why the songs were not available in the streaming services was because some members did not agree with “the intangibility of those media”.
