Slipknot Teasin’ Some Shit with Mysterious Videos
Slipknot begin a tour of the U.K. and Europe tonight (tickets), and the band has kicked things off with a series of mysterious, creepy, psychedelic videos on social media, the meaning of which is currently unknown.
The first one, sent out from the band’s Twitter account, comes with a caption that says, simple, “soon.”
The others, all shared via Instagram, also come with captions, although the meaning of those captions is even less clear. One of the captions, “Death Because of Death,” is the title of an interstitial track from the band’s 2019 release, We Are Not Your Kind. The other captions seem to be random phrases:
- “Fertilization Deployment”
- “The New Individual”
- “The Esoteric Oneself or Someone”
- “Dreams of Crops”
- “Matured Ovule”
- “Fertilization Evacuation”
- “Allure of Indignation”
Some fans think this is actually teasing Look Outside Your Window, the unreleased, eleven-track album recorded by Corey Taylor, Jim Root, Shawn “Clown” Crahan, and Sid Wilson during the sessions for We Are Not Your Kind. That seems like wishful thinking to me, but who knows? Personally, the multiple references to fertilizer make me hopeful that we’re finally getting that Slipknot camel shit cologne we’ve been anticipating for the past six years.
While we wait for concrete answers, check out all the videos below, and then head to the comments section to speculate as to what the what is goin’ on here.
