Slipknot Release Video for “The Devil in I,” Reveal New Masks
Update, 1:32 pm: We’re pretty certain we’ve figured out who the band’s new bassist is! Go here for details.
Slipknot have released a video for their new single “The Devil in I,” which you can view below. In it, the band plays while a bunch of creepy weird shit happens, thereby differentiating it from no Slipknot video ever. I did think the part where (SPOILER ALERT!) Mick Thompson rips off his own face is really cool, though.
Of course, the part of the video in which people will really be interested is the reveal of the band’s new masks, including the identical mask which will be worn by their new drummer and bassist. For the most part, the masks are pretty anticlimactic (Chris Fehn’s is different colors! Sid Wilson’s has grates over the eyes now!), but Corey Taylor’s is undeniably unsettling, so kudos to whomever came up with that one.
Also: while we still have no idea who the drummer is, we do know the color and approximate length of his hair. So, snoops, get snoopin’.
Slipknot’s new album, .5: The Gray Chapter, comes out October 21 on Roadrunner. The band starts a tour with Korng 810 in October. Get dates here.
