Tool Are Busy Re-recording Old Songs Instead of Making New Ones
Three things in this life seem to be certain: death, taxes and Tool's follow-up to 10,000 Days being forever shrouded in mystery. While Maynard James Keenan informed the masses this past summer that nothing had actually been recorded for a new record yet, some new updates have found the band in studio reworking some of their older material rather than capturing some new songs.

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.
