Tool have dethroned Taylor Swift from the top of the Billboard 200 album chart after their long-awaited new studio album debuted in the No. 1 spot.
Fans have waited 13 years for the release of "Fear Inoculum," the follow up to their 2006 album "10,000 Days", and the new effort sold 248,000 physical copies during the first week it was available.
When factoring in Billboard's metric for accounting for digital streams, the album pulled down 270,000 equivalent album units, easily beating Swift's new album "Lover" that grabbed 178,000 streams and sales.
Tool also enjoyed significant sales without the use of special presale offers or concert ticket bundles. The album had also made chart history after the title track became the longest song to ever make the Billboard Hot 100 chart after it landed at No. 93.
