Listen to the New Slipknot Song, “The Chapeltown Rag”!

  • Axl Rosenberg

As promised, today Slipknot have debuted a new song, “The Chapeltown Rag.”

Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor recently described the song as “frenetic” and “a punisher,” and he wasn’t just whistlin’ Dixie. This has to be one of the heaviest, most chaotic songs the band has released in a couple of album cycles, at least. It’s not nearly at Iowa levels of insanity, but it definitely makes tracks like “Unsainted,” “All Out Life,” and “The Devil in I” seem like weak shit by comparison.

Check out the song via the below visualizer. Slipknot will give the track its live debut during their headlining set at Knotfest Los Angeles tonight.

Can’t make it to Knotfest L.A.? Fret not! The band will livestream their entire headlining set, as well as “select appearances” from other acts on the bill, including Killswitch Engage, Code Orange, Fever 333, Cherry Bombs (featuring Corey Taylor’s wife, Alicia Dove), and Vended (featuring the sons of Corey Taylor and Shawn “Clown” Crahan). Tickets for the livestream are available here for a base price of $15; there are also more expensive packages with various goodies and add-ons, including a hoodie with secret artwork that won’t be unveiled until later today.
