Slipknot share first new song in 4 years, “All Out Life”
Slipknot have just released the searing “All Out Life”, their first new track in four years, and they’ve dropped a music video to boot.
“All Out Life” is the first new music we’ve heard from Slipknot since 2014’s .5: The Gray Chapter. The music video was directed by the band’s own M. Shawn Crahan (aka “Clown”). Check it out below.

Corey Taylor has released a statement detailing the track, he 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.”
Last month it was revealed that Slipknot have plans to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut record, read more about it here.
