Opiate, Tool's debut EP from 1992, will get a limited re-release through the band's official website. Although the band hasn't said what format they'll use (Vinyl? CD? Something weirdly Tool-ish like cassette?), it will be a physical release--and there will only be 5,000 copies.
The 5,000 copies will be broken down as 5 x 1,000 runs with each set featuring a variation of the exterior graphics and included bonus items which include a new stereoscopic image for fans to use with their glasses from the 10,000 Days packaging.
The packages will only be available via TOOL‘s website (www.toolband.com) on Mar. 26 and there will be no pre-orders. A limit of three packages from each of the 5 x 1,000 versions will be in place. More details to be announced soon.
Oh, and that image on the rigth? That's part of the artwork.
