A heavy comeback for Slipknot with their new single “All Out Life,” their first new song since LP, .5: The Gray Chapter that topped the charts back in 2014. Corey Taylor hit back against short-lived trends and short attention spans on the new music:
“Old does not mean dead; new does not mean best/ No hard feelings,” he screams “I’m tired of being right about everything I’ve said/ Yours does not mean mine; kill does not mean die/ We are not your kind; no excuses/ I challenge you to all-out-life.”
Corey said in a statement:
“‘All Out Life’ is a song that is trying to do two things: bring everyone together, but also remind everyone that the past is not something to be discarded with disdain,”
“‘All Out Life’ is a song that is trying to do two things: bring everyone together, but also remind everyone that the past is not something to be discarded with disdain,” Taylor said in a statement. “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.”
Despite the release, the future of the metal band is still uncertain, however, vocalist Corey Taylor revealed that the band is on their way to the studio in works to record their seventh studio album in early 2019.
But meanwhile, let’s do some headbanging so keep going for the music video below:
