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 below.

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 via this link.

Produced By SLIPKNOT and Joe BarresiTHE 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 Ireland, 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-out KNOTFEST 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.
