Tool guitarist Adam Jones has posted a video to his Instagram account of him working on a revised version of the title track from their 1992 EP, Opiate (Volcano). The band has also produced a music video for the new version of the song that will see a release sometime soon.
~ We recorded a new version of Opiate not too long ago. We wrote a different break down that's about five minutes longer in the middle of the song. I believe there are recent live versions of it online. @dominic_hailstone_ did an (unreleased) Ultimate Video for it. Anyway here's a clip of me messing with sounds for the distant Synth Melody. *Enjoy ❤️ #Tool #opiate ~ https://instagram.com/p/BL7guPOASjA/
Tool is believed to be working on vinyl reissues of their entire back catalogue, as well as their long-awaited new album, which is “expected” to finally be released sometime in 2018.
