Official press release:
Tool's re-imagined and extended version of their 1992 single “Opiate,” now dubbed “Opiate2,” is streaming now via the various DSPs (listen here):
Accompanying the single is a Blu-ray only visual companion, the band's first music video in 15 years, arriving March 18 (pre-orders are available now). Housed in a 46-page art book with behind-the-scenes and making-of photos, the Blu-ray release 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.
