BLU-RAY SHORT FILM ARRIVES MARCH 18 VIA RCA RECORDS 

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

March 1, 2022, LOS ANGELES – 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 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 Inoculumon 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.
