Slipknot surprised fans this Halloween by releasing a new single "All Out Life."
Earlier today (Oct. 31) the band premiered the song over at Zane Lowe's World Record Beats 1 show on Apple Music. They later shared the track's accompanying music video directed by Shawn "Clown" Crahan. The clip features a busload of people dressed in bloodied skull masks and white Slipknot jumpsuits running into a dark warehouse. Inside they hold some sort of ritual while mysterious figures in black observe them. Watch the video above.
The track comes from their highly anticipated follow-up to 2014's .5: The Gray Chapter, which is due next year via Road Runner Records. Speaking about the song's lyrical content, frontman Corey Taylor says "Everybody talks about toxic masculinity and toxic fandom these days.
