Today’s the day maggots around the world have been desperately awaiting. Fellow maggots, we’re here to share that a new Slipknot record is officially upon us! After dropping ‘The Chapeltown Rag‘ track last year which took us back to their IOWA era, fans went crazy thinking of how heavy their original facemaskers’ next release could be.
With no word of new music since November 2021, Slipknot have now emerged with their big announcement of seventh studio album The End, So Far which will come out September 30, via Roadrunner Records. The new LP is their first in over three years since We Are Not Your Kind (our review here) featuring hits such as ‘Unsainted’ and ‘Solway Firth’. The End, So Far… will certainly feature ‘The Chapeltown Rag’ as well as brand new single ‘The Dying Song (Time to Sing)‘ which you can stream right now.
The new track continues on with the IOWA-esque aggression where Corey Taylor opens with a drilling verse alongside accelerating drums. With a re-grouping chorus where the band balance out the mayhem, Slipknot return to a nu-metal medley with their signature crunchy riffs and all of their classic aesthetics.
Many rumours are swirling across social media and Reddit that the album name suggests either a final album for the ‘knot, or a hiatus of some kind, however the band haven’t confirmed or denied either way, but we’ll keep this one updated as we hear more so check back soon.
Alright, less reading – this is now your time to get ready for Slipknot‘s forthcoming album The End, So Far… – GO, GO, GO!
