About TOOL

Los Angeles, CA, United States
Music Group

Tool is an art rock band which formed out of the LA progressive rock scene wave in the early 1990s, when heavy metal music was on its way out and grunge hadn’t arrived in southern California yet. Associated acts include the bands A Perfect Circle, Pigmy Love Circus, Green Jellÿ, and Puscifer. The founding members of Tool were all fixtures in the LA creative scene already, giving the line-up Maynard James Keenan (vocals), Adam Jones (guitar), Danny Carey (drums), and Justin Chancellor (bass). By 1992 they had released their first album “Opiate” on the Zoo Entertainment label.

Tool blends the grinding sound of post-metal with the shoe-gazing artistry of progressive rock, with critics pegging them halfway between the bands Jane's Addiction and Pink Floyd. Their music videos were a fixture of MTV throughout the 1990s, with the video for “Sober” (1993) garnering particular acclaim. All four studio albums by Tool are certified multi-platinum worldwide. They consistently hit top-ten in the singles’ charts from 1996‘s “Stinkfist” (#1 Canadian Alt) to 2006‘s “The Pot” (#1 Billboard US Mainstream).
