Tool to Release Limited Edition Version of "Opiate" EP

Calling all collectors. Tool will release a handcrafted, bonus-laden, limited edition package of their original debut EP, Opiate, on March 26 to mark the 21st anniversary of the six-song collection.
We can't believe it's been 21 years since we indulged in "Jerk Off," "Part of Me" and the title track. Those are such classic tracks in the band's catalog.
The anniversary edition is limited to only 5,000 copies and features art direction by Adam Jones, illustrations by legendary artist Adi Granov and design packaging by Mackie Osborne, who has collaborated with the band on many albums.
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 the band's website on release date and there will be no pre-orders. So you have to wait until March 26 to get yourself a copy.
A limit of three packages from each of the 5 x 1,000 versions will be in place.
