Danny Carey keeps saying Tool’s new album will be released in 2018, but even if it doesn’t happen, fans can still expect a new video release this year. Visual effects artist, etc. Dominic Hailstone (‘Alien: Covenant‘, etc.) was recently interviewed by Yutani.blog and said he worked on a new Tool video that should be out this year. It is assumed that he is referring to a clip for the new version of “Opiate”, which Adam Jones previously revealed Hailstone worked on.
Hailstone said the following when asked what his favorite project has been:
“A video for Tool that should be coming out later this year. Adam Jones gave me complete artistic freedom so the only constraint was the budget, we had a lot of fun figuring that out. Other than that Alien Covenant as I was working with friends I hadn’t seen in over 15 years. That was special.”
