Tool’s “Opiate” Reissue To Feature ‘Golden Tickets’, Adam Jones Once Again Talks New Material
Tool‘s forthcoming 21st anniversary reissue of their “Opiate” EP will come with a little something extra—if you’re lucky. Five copies of the commemorative edition will randomly include a “Seal Of Xatanitos”. Ever a band of mystery, the details of that prize will only be disclosed to those who actually manage to win it.
The band will be re-releasing the aforementioned effort with expanded artwork and packaging through Toolband.com on March 26th. Meanwhile, guitarist Adam Jones recently spoke with Spin.com in regards to the project and the bands long-awaited new album.
Of that he went on to say: “Lately, we’ve been trying to write music and not doing any other projects that distract us.”
He further went on to offer:
“We’re older guys now. The band has changed drastically. We’re very distant people now and have our own lives. It’s always been like that. It’s been a collective perspective even from the start, but now it’s much more diverse. And I’m not saying that’s bad. It’s just different.
So writing is a different perspective now. It’s taken a little longer. And besides that, we’ve had a couple major setbacks that we’re recovering from. I’m calling March “March Madness” because I’ve been really trying to kick ass and focus on this thing and get it to a point where we’re all happy. I really love those guys. And people grow and they change; it’s just like a relationship.
You just have to compromise and respect each other. It’s just like life. It’s like anything else. That’s where it’s at.”
