SLIPKNOT releases “Death March” music video coinciding with the debut of new mystery member
SLIPKNOT, the renowned metal band, has recently unveiled a chilling instrumental music video for their new song, “Death March.” The video was released just hours after the band’s live performance at the Nova Rock festival in Austria, where they introduced a mysterious new member to the stage.
To coincide with the release, SLIPKNOT has launched a new website, YouCantKillMe.com, featuring an option for fans to enter their email addresses. The exact purpose of signing up remains unclear at this time.
The visually striking “Death March” video portrays nine mannequin-like figures standing against a wall, each meeting a gruesome fate as their heads are blown off one by one.
This track serves as SLIPKNOT‘s first taste of new music since their surprise standalone single, “Bone Church,” which premiered in February. Accompanying the single was a video piece titled “Yen – Director’s Cut (Bone Church),” in which M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan, one of the band’s founding members, percussionist, and visual mastermind, refreshed footage from their “Yen” music video.
In an announcement made on June 7, SLIPKNOT revealed the departure of their longtime keyboardist, Craig Jones. However, the post regarding Jones’s exit was swiftly deleted, replaced by a photo introducing the band’s apparent new member. This unidentified individual was spotted performing behind the keyboards during the Nova Rock show.
The reasons behind Jones’s departure from SLIPKNOT have not been disclosed by the band at this time.
