Tool have unveiled Opiate², an extended re-working of Opiate, the title track of their 1992 EP. 

Released in celebration of the EP's 30th anniversary, Opiate² is the band's first new material since their chart-topping 2019 album, Fear Inoculum. It will also – the band says – soon be accompanied by their first music video in 15 years. The video will be released on March 18.
