Slipknot have shared their first new track in four years.
Titled 'All Out Life', it comes alongside a video directed by the band's m> Shawn Crahan, and represents the first new music from the band since '.5: The Gray Chapter' in 2014.
Speaking about the track, frontman Corey Taylor explains: "“All Out Life” is a song that is trying to do 2 things: bring everyone together, but also remind everyone that the past is not something to be discarded with disdain. People are so eager to find the Next Big Thing sometimes that they shit all over the bands and artists that have come before, thus making the past feel disposable, like a dirty thing. Fuck that: Why should we pay attention to your mediocre future when you can’t be bothered to celebrate an amazing past? I’d rather listen to a guaranteed hit than a forced miss. “All Out Life” is the anthem that reminds people that it’s not the date on the music—it’s the staying power."
A bew album from Slipknot is expected to arrive in 2019, with the band already planning a European run that includes a headline appearance at next year's Download festival.
