Slipknot recently shared a new single, “The Chapeltown Rag,” from the band’s untitled upcoming album.
“The Chapeltown Rag,” named after the suburb of Leeds in England, is the heavy metal rock band’s first new music in two years.
“It’s a punisher man. It’s classic Slipknot. And it’s frenetic,” Slipknot lead singer Corey Taylor says about the song. “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,” he added.
According to Slipknot co-founder M. Shawn Crahan, “‘The Chapeltown Rag’ facilitates a sort of mindset that you’re going to like: it’s along the barnburner side of things.”
“The Chapeltown Rag” debut live performance was staged at Knotfest, held at the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles on Friday.
