Back in October, Slipknot surprise-released a brand new track, “All Out Life,” which is scheduled to be included on the still-untitled forthcoming album.

Said Slipknot’s Shawn Crahan at the time: “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.”
