It's been a wild 24 hours for Slipknot.
It all started when the band posted to their social media that keyboardist Craig Jones had left the band, only to delete the announcement shortly thereafter. Slipknot then took the stage at Nova Rock in Austria with what appear to be a replacement for Jones, who they then posted a captionless photo on social media. We not only don't know what the hell is happening with this Jones situation, but now there's a mystery website with a mystery video on it.
Slipknot posted a brief video to their Instagram account this morning that, if you watch really closely at the end, flashes a website called youcantkillme.com. That site is populated by two things – an email address signup list, and whatever this snuff film-styled video is below. The video is called "Death March" and features loads of unidentifiable footage alongside what sounds like some backwards music toward the end.
There's no countdown or anything, so your guess is as good as ours as to what this is. Slipknot is scheduled to play Czechia tonight, so who knows what'll happen between now and then. Get your tickets here.
