Slipknot recently released their new single "The Dying Song (Time To Sing)" alongside the announcement of their new record The End, So Far. You can check out the band playing the debut single live for the first time ever earlier this evening at the O2 Arena in Prague, Czech Republic. Now if we could only get some closeup footage of Sid Wilson's mask singing along, we'd be all set…
As for the album title The End, So Far, it doesn't quite mean what you think it does. 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?"
