Tool Performs “Culling Voices” Live For The First Time, Carey On Guitar


For the very first time, Tool played the Inoculum of Fear song “Culling Voices” live on January 15, and drummer Danny Carey even played guitar onstage at the start of the song.

The show at the Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, Calif., was just the fourth show of Tool’s extensive US tour, which will keep them on the road until March 20, with support from Blonde Redhead until February 10. and The Acid Helps thereafter. The race, which continues with the help of COVID-sniffing dogs, has already been highlighted by a performance of “Right in Two” for the first time since 2011, featuring both “Hooker With a Penis” and ” Pushit” being dusted off for the first time since 2014.

Singer Maynard James Keenan also gave the ending scream to “The Grudge” for the first time since 2002 on this tour and then played along to the lyrics to “Hooker With a Penis”, where one of the lyrics was changed to “White Claw”. the name of a popular brand of hard seltzer.

Fans in attendance on January 15 were treated to a treat when Tool released “Culling Voices”, the seventh track to be played on their latest album, released in 2019. As if that weren’t enough of a surprise, Carey came out from behind his massive drums and joined the band in a tight semi-circle at the front of the stage and played guitar as the hypnotic intro progressed.

The physical version of Inoculum of Fear contains seven tracks, which means that Tool has now played every song from this version of the album (the digital version has three additional tracks – ambient interludes) at least once in concert, per
