If you haven’t already, you need to! Get over the Slipknot’s website, register and unlock the first new tune in 6 years titled “The Negative One.” It seems the two weeks or so of teases to the band’s website wasn’t for naught as the band pumped out one of most anticipated songs in recent history of heavy metal. When you register and unlock the song, you’ll also notice a message about returning to the site Tuesday for the video exclusive for the song. Lord knows what that’s gonna be like! We’ll keep you posted!
Meanwhile a judge says the widow of Slipknot bassist Paul Gray waited too long to file a lawsuit against Dr. Daniel Baldi, the guy she thinks caused his death. The Polk County, Iowa, District Judge ruled last week to dismiss the case filed by Brenna Gray. She filed suit saying Dr. Baldi failed to help her husband overcome drug addictions. The Judge said she should have filed within two years of her husband’s death. Paul died of an overdose in 2010. She filed suit this past February.
New Bizkit tune
They originally dropped the single via cassette tape—something some of you apparently still rock in your hoopties, but now Limp Bizkit has given the track up as a download. The tune “Endless Slaughter” is just the latest release from the long awaited album Stampede of the Disco Elephants. Critics say the song is one of the weirdest songs the band has ever put out. It goes from some unhinged vocals to some post-hardcore rock then into some hip hop. It kinda runs the gamut of Limp Bizkit sounds. The band will be out on tour this September with a stop in Chicago at the Aragon September 28th and in St. Louis at the Pageant September 30th.
Airs October 17th
If you want to watch Foo Fighters in the HBO series Sonic Highways, you better subscribe to the premium cable channel by October 17th. That’s when the show will air the first of the series. The eight episodes will air Friday nights throughout the run. There’s still no word on when the album will be out.
