Two days ago, we asked the question: "Are Slipknot teasing a new single?" And it turns out that not only is the very exciting answer, 'Fuck yes!' but we're going to get to hear it as soon as tomorrow!
The ’Knot have just revealed that their "punisher" of a new tune, The Chapeltown Rag, is getting its live debut at Knotfest Los Angeles on November 5, sharing a new interview on Twitter while confirming: 'New single out tomorrow', 'Performed live at Knotfest LA'.
Speaking with Knotfest, frontman Corey Taylor says the track (the name of which is inspired by the West Yorkshire suburb Chapeltown, which has a dark past due to Peter Sutcliffe, aka the Yorkshire Ripper), is "classic Slipknot", teasing that: "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."
