Do you want more Slipknot right now? Because we've got more Slipknot right now. The band is now streaming their new single "Yen," which frankly is making me understand the band's comparisons to their 2004 album Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses). This one certainly sits right in that area with its usage on melody that slowly builds into a slow-burning heaviness. The added instrumentation throughout is also a really cool touch.
Pre-orders for The End, So Far available here prior to its September 30 release date. And no, that record name does not mean that the band is breaking up. During a show at the Hills Of Rock festival in Plovdiv, Bulgaria on July 21, Slipknot vocalist Corey Taylor told the crowd that the album title signifies a transition and not an actual end.
"I'll tell you what, some of you might have heard the news that Slipknot has a new album coming out very, very soon. The name of that album is called The End, So Far. And for those doomsday motherfuckers who think that Slipknot are gonna break up, that is not the case. This simply represents the end of one moment and the beginning of the rest of our fucking lives. Do you understand what I'm fucking saying to you out there?"
