Slipknot Confirm The Title Of A New Song They’ve Written With Their Latest Members


Slipknot have confirmed the rumors of at least one new song with their latest recruits being in the works. A recent conversation with the band’s latest drummer Eloy Casagrande (ex-Sepultura, etc.) found him revealing that some new song ideas had been tossed around since he joined the fold earlier this year.

Speaking with Veja São Paulo, Casagrande said of that:

“I’m still trying to understand how the dynamics of the band work, it’s not so clear yet how things work in terms of records and new songs. We’ve written a few things, and they’re shelved for the time being.

We have a gig on the 12th and we’re going to spend a few days there, exchanging musical ideas. For the time being, I don’t think there’s any pressure to record new material. But I’m sure they want to, I don’t know when, because right now the band is focused on celebrating its 25th anniversary.”

The phrase “Long May You Die” has been used in Slipknot marketing over the past month or so, prominently showing up on a billboard erected last month near Indio, CA. There’s been lingering speculation among fans of the multi-platinum masked metal band that the sentence was more than just a catchy new slogan.

Taking to social media today, May 15th, the group  confirmed those suspicions, revealing that it is in fact the title to one of the songs they’ve been working on. Whether or not it becomes the first to be shared from the Iowan outfit remains to be seen

In addition to potentially being Casagrande‘s recorded debut with the band, it is expected that it will also be the band’s first with contributions from their as-yet unidentified sampler/keyboardist, etc. . That mystery player took over for Craig “133” Jones in 2023. Rumors of Jeff Karnowski of Dirty Little Rabbits fame being behind the mask cropped up last month, but have yet to be confirmed or denied.

Slipknot have thus far played three shows this year, since welcoming Eloy Casagrande behind the drum kit. They will be back onstage this weekend as part of the 2024 ‘Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival‘, with plans to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their 2x multi-platinum self-titled 1999 album booked to run into early 2025.
