Slipknot Tear Through ‘The Chapeltown Rag’ in New Music Video
Slipknot on Thursday (Feb. 17) shared a performance-based video for their latest single, last November's thumping metal anthem "The Chapeltown Rag."
The new clip uses recent live footage of the band's always exuberant concerts to underscore the sonic brutality of the signature Slipknot track.
And it's just the latest vivid chapter in Slipknot's videography, a growing body of work often overseen by Slipknot percussion Shawn "clown" Crahan.
Watch the new video near the bottom of this post.
Fans had many different reactions to "Chapeltown Rag" when it first emerged last fall, seemingly as a standalone single, though indications suggest it will end up on Slipknot's next album. Listeners also had questions about the meaning of the song's lyrics.
And that new Slipknot album is on the way shortly. It's the follow-up to 2019's We Are Not Your Kind. Corey Taylor, Slipknot's lead vocalist and the founder of Stone Sour, will also release a second solo LP soon.
Meanwhile, the singer's looking to Slipknot's coming Knotfest tours with In This Moment, Jinjer, Cypress Hill and Ho99o9 on different dates.
Taylor said, "Even with everything going on in the world right now, we're still extremely excited to come back out in the states, with two different, exciting packages."
He added, "Whether it's In This Moment and Jinjer, or Cypress and Ho99o9, we pride ourselves in bringing our fans the epicenter of our music and art. Come celebrate with us, and try to stay as safe as we will be."
