Funko announced a bunch of new music-related Pop! vinyl figures earlier today (January 20) as part of this year’s London Toy Fair. They include new figures inspired by Slipknot, Slayer, Ghost, Motörhead, ZZ Top, Weezer, Eazy-E, and Willie Nelson.
Slipknot have announced that they will be recording an in-studio session at Maida Vale Studios. The set will air on BBC Radio 1‘s “Rock Show With Daniel P Carter.”
A five-year-old Slipknot fan named Caleb H recently went viral after a video of him air drumming during a Slipknot show in the UK surfaced online. Corey Taylor retweeted the clip and Jay Weinberg even commented on it:
As a bonus, you can also watch footage of Caleb H. covering “Before I Forget” while dressed as former drummer Joey Jordison below:
During Slipknot‘s show in Dublin, Ireland last night (January 14), the band performed “Nero Forte” and “Birth Of The Cruel” live for the first time. You can see footage of that below. Both tracks are featured on the group’s latest album “We Are Not Your Kind”
Slipknot have released a new short film called “Pollution.” The 20-minute video was directed by percussionist M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan, who had the following to say:
“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.”
Slipknot have posted a bunch of cryptic teaser clips and also appear to have launched a mysterious Instagram account called @thehueisblack01. It is unknown what the band are teasing, but some have assumed that it could be related to the unreleased “Look Outside Your Window” album. Stay tuned for more info.
Slipknot’s “We Are Not Your Kind” has officially been certified silver in the UK. The British Phonographic Industry presented the band with the honor for equivalent sales of 60,000 units.
