GRAMMY Award-winning Iowan icons SLIPKNOT have shared “Bone Church,” a surprise standalone single available today on all streaming platforms. The new song arrives with a M. Shawn ‘clown’ Crahan directed video piece titled “Yen – Director’s Cut (Bone Church),” which finds the multidisciplinary artist and founding member refreshing footage from the band’s “Yen” music video – watch HERE.
Says clown about the new track, “On the road, we have a “jam room” set up backstage at every show, where we play, practice, warm up and sometimes try out new ideas. Bone Church started life in a jam room on the .5: The Gray Chapter tour. We’ve been bringing it closer and closer to life ever since, and finally, here it is. This one is for the fans – a further vision deeper into Slipknot’s history, which is still being written. Enjoy.”
Released this past September, Slipknot’s latest album THE END, SO FAR landed at #1 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart and at #2 on the Billboard 200, marking their sixth top 10-charting album on the Billboard 200. The album also made a stunning impact worldwide with #1 debuts in the United Kingdom, Australia, Germany, Switzerland, and Mexico, as well as Top 3 debuts in Canada, New Zealand, Finland, Sweden, Japan, and Belgium. THE END, SO FAR is available on limited edition vinyl, CD, and cassette, with physical bundles available at www.slipknot1.com (album art / track listing below).
“The gang choruses on ‘The Dying Song (Time To Sing)’ and ‘The Chapeltown Rag’ will cut right through any crowd of the Knotfest devoted,” raved the Los Angeles Times. The FADER declared “It absolutely rips,” adding “it feels more like they are simply waving goodbye to one chapter… and preparing for the decades to come.” “A punishing new elegy,” praised Rolling Stone with SPIN adding, “it checks all the boxes of the band’s latter-day sound.” NME asserted “you can almost feel them pushing themselves,” noting “their next left turn of an era could be their most daring yet.”
Produced By SLIPKNOT and Joe Barresi, THE END, SO FAR features the singles “The Dying Song (Time To Sing),” “Yen,” – both of which feature stunning music videos directed by the band’s own M. Shawn ‘clown’ Crahan – and “The Chapeltown Rag.” The collection 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.
THE END, SO FAR follows SLIPKNOT’s widely celebrated 2019 album WE ARE NOT YOUR KIND, which marked SLIPKNOT’s third consecutive #1 on the Billboard 200. The release made a massive global impact with #1 debuts in the Official Album Charts of twelve countries around the world, including the UK, Australia, Canada and Mexico, with Top 5 debuts in an additional twelve countries including Germany, France and Sweden.
Having recently wrapped the third leg of their enormously popular sold-outKNOTFEST Roadshow tour, SLIPKNOT are set to embark on a run of headlining global festival dates beginning this March which will include their own KNOTFEST Australia, Japan, and Italy festivals.

There was never a band like SLIPKNOT, and there will never be another. Like a spore out of the Midwest,
they’ve quietly bloomed into the most uncompromising, undeniable, and unique presence on the planet whose influence transcends genres and generations. Since sowing the seeds for revolution in Iowa during 1999, these musical outliers have captured a GRAMMY Award alongside 10 nominations, scored 12 Platinum / 41 Gold album certifications around the world, and logged over 8.5 billion global streams and 3.5 billion video views to date – unprecedented for a rock act in this generation or any other. Rolling Stone cited the seminal platinum-selling 2001 album Iowa among “The 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time,” while The Ringer attested, “They’re the most important heavy band of their era.” In addition to marking the group’s third consecutive #1 debut on the Billboard Top 200, their sixth full-length album, WE ARE NOT YOUR KIND, bowed at #1 in twelve countries worldwide in 2019. Selling out shows on multiple continents, they deliver an irreplicable multi-sensory experience on tour and through their own festival KNOTFEST. With their seventh album THE END, SO FAR, SLIPKNOT are back, and nothing will be the same again.
