The EP Opiate was released on March 10th, 1992 and is one of the earliest releases to come from Tool. Opiate features seven songs (if you include the hidden track) and has been certified platinum. To celebrate the upcoming 30th anniversary of the EP, Tool are releasing a special re-imagining of Opiate, titled Opiate2.

News of this release comes from the Tool Instagram account. The post shares a brief video teaser, which you can view below, along with the following caption:

“Taking it back to the beginning, Tool celebrates the 30th anniversary of their first commercially-available release, Opiate, with a re-imagined and extended version of the EP’s title track and an accompanying short film. ‘Opiate2’ (pronounced Opiate Squared) is available via streaming services on March 1, with the Blu-ray only visual companion available on March 18 (pre-order link in bio).

“Visual artist @dominic_hailstone_ (‘Alien: Covenant’, ‘The Eel’) worked with Adam 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.”
