Slipknot deliver a dose of Killpop

Posted by on June 8, 2015

The latest music video from Slipknot’s .5: The Gray Chapter has just come out, this one for the band’s third single,”Killpop.” Vocalist Corey Taylor explained to WGRD 97.9 FM that the song is about, “my reflection on my relationship with music.”

Said Taylor about, “Killpop,”

“There’s the old adage, ‘Be careful what you wish for,’ and, ‘Be careful doing what you love, because sometimes it will turn on you.’ And, you know, anytime you mix something that you love and business, you’re gonna find the rusty cracks in there that piss you off. So that song, really, is about how much I still love making music, but also how much I just hate the business side, the numbers side, the people in the suits who try to run stuff, and having to deal with them and having to learn how to talk to them. And, you know, it’s frustrating sometimes, but it is what it is. And luckily, we got a great song out of it, and we were able to really paint something really cool with it and just be able to put it out there for people to dig.”

Previous Slipknot music videos from .5: The Gray Chapter include, “The Devil In I,” and the Shawn “Clown” Crahan directed, “The Negative One,” both of which came out last year.

Slipknot will be on the road this July with Lamb of God, Bullet For My Valentine, and Motionless In White on the Summer’s Last Stand Tour.
