Slipknot Return With Vicious New Song And Video All Out Life

Wednesday, 31 October 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

Stop everything. Slipknot are back.

The Iowa metal icons have surprise released an unrelenting new cut, All Out Life, which premiered via Zane Lowe’s World Record on Beats 1 on Apple Music earlier today. Head below to view the track's accompanying video, which was directed by Slipknot's Clown, aka M. Shawn Crahan.

All Out Life marks the band's first new music in four years and is set to appear on the upcoming follow up to 2014's '.5: The Gray Chapter', which is due to arrive next year through Roadrunner.

The song's presence was first alluded to weeks ago - and regularly, since - in a digital campaign for a web app Touche, which featured the tagline 'Welcome to your all out life!' The app made no mention of Slipknot, and was a trojan horse, ultimately, set up by the band as a commentary on the public's willingness to hand over their privacy in exchange for worthless, temporary engagement. Discussing the song with Lowe, vocalist Corey Taylor said:

"All Out Life is a song that is trying to do two 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."

Slipknot will headline next year's Download festival as part of a summer of headlining and mainstage festival dates in the UK and Europe.
