Slipknot debut new track 'The Chapeltown Rag'

Slipknot have released a new single titled "The Chapeltown Rag." Produced by Joe Barresi (Avenged Sevenfold, Queens Of The Stone Age) during recent sessions for the group's yet-to-be-announced new album, the song can be streamed below.


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 (aka Clown) added, "'The Chapeltown Rag' facilitates a sort of mindset that you're going to like: it's along the barnburner side of things."
