By March 18, 2022 Manchester, News

TOOL’s first video in 15 years, ‘Opiate2,’ is released today. A three-minute preview of the Blu-Ray short film is viewable here (https://tool.lnk.to/Opiate2clip).

‘Opiate2′ is a re-imagined and extended version of TOOL’s 1992 single ‘Opiate,’ with both the song and video marking the 30th anniversary of the EP of the same name’s release.

Housed in a 46-page art book with behind-the-scenes and making-of photos, the ‘Opiate2′ Blu-Ray also includes interviews and insights from special guests.  Visual artist Dominic Hailstone (‘Alien: Covenant’, ‘The Eel’) worked with Adam Jones on the 10-plus minute film. The clip continues TOOL’s knack for merging the aural and visual worlds, creating an all-encompassing experience for the listener that has been a hallmark of the outfit since their inception. Hailstone and Jones also collaborated on the filmed pieces featured on the current Fear Inoculum tour.

TOOL also recently announced the arrival of Fear Inoculum on vinyl, with the Ultra Deluxe set arriving April 8. The collection features 5 x 180g vinyl discs emblazoned with a unique etching on the album’s B-side, and accompanied by an elaborate pictorial booklet including never-before-seen artwork. The limited-edition collection, which also features a new cover, is housed in a hard shell box.
