TOOL TO RELEASE “OPIATE2” DIGITALLY ON MARCH 1

WITH BLU-RAY SHORT FILM ARRIVING ON MARCH 18 VIA RCA RECORDS

RE-IMAGINED SONG AND VIDEO MARK THE 30th ANNIVERSARY OF THE OPIATE EP AND THE BAND’S FIRST VIDEO IN 15 YEARS

 

TOOL, who are currently on tour in support of their GRAMMY Award® winning album Fear Inoculum, take it back to their beginning, celebrating the 30th anniversary of their first commercially-available release, Opiate, with a re-imagined and extended version of the EP’s title track and an accompanying short film. “Opiate2” is available via DSPs on March 1, with the Blu-ray only visual companion available on March 18.

Visual artist Dominic Hailstone (“Alien: Covenant”, “The Eel”) worked with Jones on the 10-plus minute film, which is the band’s first new video in 15 years. 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.
