TOOL – Opiate² (Official Clip)

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.

Fear Inoculum (http://smarturl.it/TOOLFIa) arrived in August of 2019, following years of anticipation. The album debuted atop numerous country’s sales charts, shattering sales and radio records while also earning widespread critical praise. NME awarded Fear Inoculum a perfect five-stars and said it is “…so much more than just an album,” The Guardian declared the release “a legacy album,” Visions dubbed the 10-track collection “a perfect version of a TOOL record” and Kerrang! said “TOOL go beyond their own frontiers…”

TOOL formed in 1990, releasing five studio albums: Undertow (1993), Ænima (1996), Lateralus (2001),10,000 Days (2006), and Fear Inoculum (2019); two EPs: 72826 (1991) and Opiate (1992), and the limited-edition boxset Salival (2000). The band has won four GRAMMY Awards®: Best Metal Performance (1998, “Ænima”), Best Metal Performance (2002, “Schism”), Best Recording Package (2007, 10,000 Days) and Best Metal Performance (2020, “7empest”). TOOL is Danny Carey (drums), Justin Chancellor (bass), Adam Jones (guitar) and Maynard James Keenan (vocals).
