Tool Releases “Opiate²” Blu-Ray Package

Tool: Opiate2Tool has released Opiate², a limited edition package that reimagines and extends their classic song “Opiate”. The set includes a Blu-Ray DVD with the song plus a short film and bonus features as well as a 46-page hardcover artbook with behind-the-scenes details.

“The song was originally released in 1992. TOOL has been performing this version of the song live on tour, but this is the first time the studio version of this song is available, along with a stunning visual in a commemorative package.”

While Paul D’Amour featured on the original “Opiate”, “Opiate²” has current Tool bassist Justin Chancellor holding down the bottom end.

Shockingly, the band has also released a new music video for the song, marking their first music video in 15 years. The full version is available on the Blu-Ray, but a three-minute version has been released to YouTube:

Opiate² is available now on Blu-Ray.
