American heavy metal band formed in Des Moines, Iowa, in 1995 by percussionist Shawn Crahan, drummer Joey Jordison and bassist Paul Gray, Slipknot’s new single, “Yen,” is another taste of their upcoming album, The End, So Far.
The song continues the theme of death from the first single from the album, “The Dying Song (Time to Sing).” The title of the album, “The End, So Far,” may hint at an overall theme of, well, the end.
“You’re all I can think about. The taste is red and rusty. Can I hold you in my mouth until I fade into this form? Can you protect me? Will you breathe for me?” The band’s singer is Corey Taylor.
“As the knife goes in, cut across my skin. When my death starts, I want you to know that I was dying for you. I died for you.”
The End, So Far comes out on September 30. The band co-produced it with Joe Barresi, who mixed the band’s last two LPs. Late in 2021, the group also released “The Chapeltown Rag” as a surprise. It was also on the album.
Slipknot will start their Knotfest Roadshow on September 20 in Nashville. This will be a few weeks before their new album comes out. The tour has 12 stops, two of which are at festivals: Louder Than Life in Louisville and Aftershock in Sacramento.
- You’re the sin that I’ve been waitin’ for
- The hands around my throat
- It’s all I can think about
- The smell of sweat and blood
- I would feed you all my pleasures
- Just to drown in all of yours…Full Lyrics
