Slipknot have released their new single ahead of the release of their next album. It comes after the release of 2019’s We Are Not Your Kind.
Speaking in an interview with Knotfest, Corey Taylor explained how he went on a streaming service binge and found himself swept up in crime documentary series inspiring their latest offering.
“At that moment, everything was just kind of steering towards violence, or a history of violence. And it was just such a weird echo of social media. And the fact that social media tries to steer you towards violence or steer you towards the most toxic thing – the most toxic moment. So I looked at it from that standpoint.”
“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.”
