Following last nights epic show in Dublin’s 3Arean, Slipknot has today (Jan 15th) released ‘Pollution’, a short movie directed by Clown. Watch it below…

SLIPKNOT have shared ‘Pollution,’ a twenty-minute short film directed by the band’s own M. Shawn Crahan (aka. Clown), which is streaming below.

The expanded film centres around SLIPKNOT’s official music video for ‘Nero Forte,’ a track taken from the GRAMMY® Award-winning band’s chart-topping sixth studio album, WE ARE NOT YOUR KIND.

Crahan elaborated on the film stating, “I set out to make a short film that makes you question your own existence, here in this reality. When you lay down in your bed, next to the one you love, do you ever ask yourself – is it possible that this person could slit my throat while I’m sleeping? Enjoy. Pollution is everywhere.

Having just headlined Viva El Rock Fest in Lima, Peru, alongside The Strokes and Interpol, SLIPKNOT kicked off their headline arena tour, also featuring special guests Behemoth, in Dublin last night (review coming later today).
