The following year, at a time when alternative rock and grunge was at its height, Tool released their first full-length album, Undertow (1993).
Kabir Akhtar, webmaster of the band's semi-official fanpage, The Tool Page, wrote that "at least three of the band are listed in critical condition" after a tour bus accident on a highway.
Prior to its release, the band had sold over 13 million albums in the US alone.
Due to Tool's incorporation of visual arts and very long and complex releases, the band is generally described as a style-transcending act and part of progressive rock, psychedelic rock, and art rock.
The relationship between the band and today's music industry is ambivalent, at times marked by censorship, and the band's insistence on privacy.
Tool was scheduled to play at the Garden Pavilion in Hollywood but learned at the last minute that the venue belonged to the Church of Scientology, which was perceived as a clash with "the band's ethics about how a person should not follow a belief system that constricts their development as a human being." At the last concert of Lollapalooza in Tool's hometown Los Angeles, comedian Bill Hicks introduced the band.
Hicks had become a friend of the band members and an influence on them after being mentioned in Undertow's liner notes.
