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 HERE and will be performed live for the first time ever at Slipknot’s Knotfest Los Angeles. The event will be livestreamed as it happens, giving fans access to both the studio version and SLIPKNOT’s live performance of The Chapeltown Rag within only hours.
Recorded during recent sessions for a yet-to-be-announced new album, The Chapeltown Rag barrels forward with the speed of a derailed freight train and incisively eviscerates internet culture from the inside out with a 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.”
Slipknot will debut “The Chapeltown Rag” live on their first-ever livestream from KNOTFEST LOS ANGELES at the Banc of California Stadium. Airing Saturday 6th November from 12.00pm AEDT, tickets for the livestream are available at knotfest.veeps.com with Knotfest Members eligible to purchase at a discounted price. Fans can experience the SLIPKNOT’s performance live and for a full 72 hours afterwards along with the select appearances from Killswitch Engage, FEVER 333, Code Orange, Vended and special guests Cherry Bombs.
