While gearing up for a summer tour to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their self-titled breakthrough album, Slipknot have teased a new song. Titled “Long May You Die”, the track was confirmed to be in development via the band’s instagram. According to the post:

“Slipknot fans are talking amongst themselves about “Long May You Die” being a new song written during the recent recording sessions.

“You’re right. You’re absolutely right.”

This is the first song written with new drummer Eloy Casagrande, who replaced Jay Weinberg on the throne last month after leaving Sepultura. Speaking with Kerrang! on the new song, Casagrande said: “I think that was also part of the audition, they threw new ideas at me to see what my songwriting was like.” “They wanted to test me in every way.”

It’s most likely that material from these new sessions will emerge after the tour. Again speaking with Kerrang!, Casagrande stated: “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.”

Slipknot’s worldwide w/ Knocked Loose tour starts in August.
