Rockband Tool has announced today that it is finally joining the digital music era. The band took to Twitter this evening to reveal that the entire catalog will reach all digital and streaming services this week.

Tool says the directory will be coming to Apple Music, iTunes and other streaming services Friday 2. August. This includes every album from Tool, such as "Undertow," " Ænima ," and Lateralus.
In case you are unfamiliar with Tool:
Tool is an American rock band from Los Angeles, California. The group was formed in 1990 and features drummer Danny Carey, guitarist Adam Jones and vocalist Maynard James Keenan. Justin Chancellor has been the band's bassist since 1995, replacing their original bassist Paul D'Amour. Tool has won three Grammy Awards, toured worldwide and produced albums that topped the charts in several countries.
This announcement comes, not surprisingly, when Tool promotes their upcoming album "Fear Incoulum", which is out August 30th. The album is the band's first in thirteen years and was just confirmed today.
Tool has remained one of the longest holdouts, not only for streaming music platforms such as Apple Music, but also traditional digital stores such as iTunes. In 2017 there were rumors that the band would finally join streaming services such as Apple Music and Spotify, but that was not expressed until now.
