Tool : un vinyle indécent et une réédition d’EP

Tool s’est récemment attiré les foudres de ses fans, pour une version vinyle signée de son dernier album Fear Inoculum. La version collector vendue lors de leur tournée US ayant été gentiment proposée à 810$ ! Une paille et uniquement vendue aux détenteurs de billets VIP de la ToolArmy. Mais, MAIS, entendant les critiques, le groupe a revu sa copie et la propose désormais, au prix bien plus abordable, de 750$. Vous pouvez enlever les pâtes de votre drive, vous êtes sauvés.

“There’s some late breaking news from the band. Having just received their personal allotment of the forthcoming (TBA) FEAR INOCULUM ULTRA DELUXE LP, they were inspired to offer for sale this very limited number of advance pressings to TOOLARMY VIP PACKAGE holders (taking advantage of their early merch access) beginning with tonight’s show in Philadelphia and extending to the remaining shows in Elmont, Newark, Buffalo, Pittsburgh and so forth, or until there are no more available (prior to the worldwide release that’s projected for sometime in April).

Furthermore, these early vinyl arrivals (only a tour item for the time being) have been AUTOGRAPHED, adding a personal touch to the cover imagery. The package contains 5 discs of industry best 180g vinyl, with audio tracks on one side and etched art on the reverse of each side of the disc.Though the quantities are very limited, should there be any remaining copies, they will be made available to concert goers at the general merch booth.”

Dans un registre plus sympa, le groupe va fêter les 30 ans de son premier EP, « Opiate », avec une réédition, qu’on imagine, plus abordable avec une version du titre retravaillée et allongée.

Taking it back to the beginning, Tool celebrates the 30th anniversary of their first commercially-available release, Opiate, with a re-imagined and extended version of the EP’s title track and an accompanying short film. “Opiate2” (pronounced Opiate Squared) is available via streaming services on March 1, with the Blu-ray only visual companion available on March 18 (pre-order link in bio).

Visual artist @dominic_hailstone_ (“Alien: Covenant”, “The Eel”) worked with Adam on the 10-plus minute film, which is the band’s first new video in 15 years. Dominic and Adam also collaborated on the filmed pieces featured on the current Fear Inoculum tour.
