Listen to the re-worked song now
Tool have released a re-imagined version of “Opiate,” the title track from their first EP. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of their first commercially-available release, the band re-imagined and extended the song with an accompanying short film. Stream “Opiate2” (pronounced Opiate Squared) now below.
A Blu-ray only visual companion will be available on March 18 (pre-order now via https://TOOL.lnk.to/Opiate2). Visual artist Dominic Hailstone (Alien: Covenant, The Eel) worked with Tool guitarist Adam Jones on the 10-plus minute film, which is the band’s first new video in 15 years. Dominic and Adam also collaborated on the filmed pieces featured on the current Fear Inoculum tour.
The North American leg of Tool’s current 2022 tour wraps up on March 20 at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, OH. From there, the band will head overseas for a full European run. The trek kicks off on April 23 at the Royal Arena in Copenhagen, Denmark.
