“Long May You Die” is confirmed as the title of a new Slipknot song

Author Benedetta Baldin - 16.5.2024

Slipknot has officially acknowledged the speculation surrounding the creation of at least one new song, with their latest lineup additions actively contributing to the creative process. In a recent interview with the band’s newest drummer, Eloy Casagrande (formerly of Sepultura, among others), he disclosed that new song concepts have been circulating since his integration into the group earlier this year.

I’m still trying to understand how the dynamics of the band work, it’s not so clear yet how things work in terms of records and new songs. We’ve written a few things, and they’re shelved for the time being. We have a gig on the 12th and we’re going to spend a few days there, exchanging musical ideas. For the time being, I don’t think there’s any pressure to record new material. But I’m sure they want to, I don’t know when, because right now the band is focused on celebrating its 25th anniversary

Over the past month, the phrase “Long May You Die” has featured prominently in Slipknot‘s marketing efforts, notably displayed on a billboard erected near Indio, CA. This has sparked speculation among fans of the multi-platinum masked metal band, with many wondering if the phrase holds a deeper meaning beyond just a catchy slogan.

This will also be the band’s first with contributions from their unidentified sampler/keyboardist. The mystery player took over for Craig “133” Jones last year. There have been rumours of Jeff Karnowski of Dirty Little Rabbits being behind the mask cropped up last month, but this is not official yet.
