Slipknot Drop First New Music In 2 Years, 'The Chapeltown Rag'
GRAMMY Award-winning Iowan icons Slipknot have returned today with ‘The Chapeltown Rag’ - their first new music in two years. ‘The Chapeltown Rag’ is available now on all streaming platforms.
Recorded during recent sessions for a yet-to-be-announced new album, ‘The Chapeltown Rag’ barrels forward with the speed of a freight train derailing and incisively eviscerates internet culture from the inside out with the scream, “WHEN EVERYTHING IS GOD ONLINE…NOTHING IS.”
Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor commented on ‘The Chapeltown Rag,’ remarking
“It’s a punisher man. It's classic Slipknot. And it's frenetic. But lyrically, it's coming from a point of talking about the various manipulations that can happen when social media meets media itself. And the different ways that these manipulations can try to pull us in different directions, in the fact that we're all becoming addicts to it, which is very, very dangerous.”
M. Shawn Crahan, better known as Clown from Slipknot, added
“‘The Chapeltown Rag’ facilitates a sort of mindset that you're going to like: it's along the barnburner side of things.”
