Slipknot Confirm New Music Is In the Works

Slipknot Confirm New Music Is In the Works

- By Ramon Gonzales

Taking to social media to confirm speculation, the band let fans know their instincts were spot on.

"Long May You Die"

This was the ominous phrase that anchored the band's cryptic marketing past month in what would be revealed as a a historic underplay at Pappy & Harriett's in Pioneertown, CA., just days ahead of their Sick New World headlining set.

The surprise show proved a legendary night, with the band reemerging with a refreshed aesthetic that paid homage to their self-titled era and ushered in the era of new drummer, Eloy Casagrande. 

Given the excitement of the personnel changes and the band's upcoming 25th anniversary festivities that include a recently announced North American run with Knocked Loose, the fervor among fans is at an all-time high. In that chatter, speculation continues to swirl about what "Long May You Die" is all about and how Casagrande factors into that equation. 

Taking to their social media, Slipknot, spoke directly and confirmed what many believed to the case - the phrase wasn't just a veiled statement but rather an indication of what is next for the masked nine.

"Slipknot fans are talking amongst themselves about "Long May You DIe" being a new song written during recent recording sessions," the initial portion of the post reads. 

Putting to bed all suspicions, Slipknot punctuated the post with, "You're right. You're absolutely right." See the post from the band below.
