Slipknot Share Dramatic Video For New Single, ‘Yen’
Slipknot have shared the M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan-directed music video for Yen, the latest single off the band’s widely anticipated new album, The End, So Far, which will be released on 30 September on Roadrunner.
The new Yen video is like watching a disturbing episode of American Horror Story. Cult-like figures, spooky mansion, creepy masks, and fire, lots of fire are all in this video. It’s an eerie arthouse horror experience that’ll keep you hooked right until its ominous ending. You can watch it below.
Available on all streaming platforms, Yen is a showcase of Slipknot’s exceptional range and sees one of the world’s most popular and deeply enigmatic bands relentlessly charting new ground as they continue to redefine, revitalize, and reimagine the scope of rock music.
Yen follows the forthcoming album’s lead single The Dying Song (Time To Sing) which arrived last month accompanied by an official music video also directed by Crahan. The track garnered widespread acclaim upon its arrival with The Fader declaring “It absolutely rips,” and Rolling Stone praising it as a “punishing new elegy.”
Produced by Slipknot and Joe Barresi, The End, So Far is available for pre-order with several vinyl variants available. The End, So Far includes the band’s 2021 surprise single The Chapeltown Rag and follows their widely celebrated 2019 album We Are Not Your Kind, which marked Slipknot’s third consecutive No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The release made a massive global impact with No. 1 debuts in the official album charts of twelve countries around the world, including the U.K., Australia, Canada and Mexico, with Top 5 debuts in an additional twelve countries including Germany, France and Sweden.
Slipknot will embark on the third leg of the Knotfest Roadshow this fall with special guests Ice Nine Kills and Crown the Empire. The fall run will also include festival appearances at Louder than Life and Aftershock.
