In an Instagram post, guitarist Adam Jones revealed that the band have re-recorded a new version of their song "Opiate," the title track of their 1992 EP. Jones wrote that the new version features "a different break down that's about five minutes longer in the middle of the song."
Jones added that the new version also has an "ultimate video" accompaniment directed by English filmmaker Dominic Hailstone, whose visuals also remain unreleased.
You can find clips of Jones messing around with the song's "distant Synth Melody" and a live performance of the track from 2016 below.
~ 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/
~ Great crowd at #AfterShock festival. Thank you Sacramento‼️ I truly have to respect Mr #DannyCarey who played the entire show with a very serious Staph Infection. At first on Friday morning he was misdiagnosed with a poisonous spider bite on his upper leg. Then later Friday night the quarter sized wound was cut opened & drained. By Saturday DC was still aching from head to toe & from what I heard the Local Doctor recommended we skip the show. But Dan with headaches & painful joints played anyway... 👊🏽💪🏽 #Tool #Hero #BestDrummerInTheWorld #stubborn #getWellSoon #theshowmustgoon *vid shot by @justinroberts
