Iowa based nine piece Slipknot has posted a video online for a brand new song entitled, "All Out Life." You can check it out below. The song is expected to appear on the band's next studio album, which is scheduled to be released next year through Roadrunner Records, the title of which has not yet been revealed. To promote the album, the band will be headlining a string of European festivals next Summer, including the Download Festivals in Great Britain and Spain, Graspop Metal Meeting in Belgium and Copenhell in Denmark.

Slipknot’s Corey Taylor explained, “’All Out Life’ is a song that is trying to do 2 things: bring everyone together, but also remind everyone that the past is not something to be discarded with disdain. People are so eager to find the Next Big Thing sometimes that they shit all over the bands and artists that have come before, thus making the past feel disposable, like a dirty thing. Fuck that: why should we pay attention to your mediocre future when you can’t be bothered to celebrate an amazing past? I’d rather listen to a guaranteed hit than a forced miss. ‘All Out Life’ is the anthem that reminds people that it’s not the date on the music- it’s the staying power.”

Having hinted in the press about the aggressive nature of the music coming out of the studio, Slipknot delivers “All Out Life” as a statement of intent. At a time when music and culture are becoming increasingly homogenized and the rough edges of creativity are purposely smoothed over, the aggression and message of “All Out Life” stands apart. Clown - aka M. Shawn Crahan - elaborated on the track: “Right now is a very exciting time for Slipknot. We’ve been working on new music for the last two years, and ‘All Out Life,’ the song and the video, is just one of many concepts in the works. It’s a fitting taste to get you to the next thing. Get ready for what’s to come. We challenge you to All Out Life.”

I tried to make it to 1:30 but bailed about a minute in. That was painful.

The ending of song was kinda epic like some anger and hatred was back in slipknot music but the video is beyond lame.
