GRAMMY Award-winning Iowan icons Slipknot have announced details of their hotly anticipated new album, The End, So Far, which will be released 30th September via Roadrunner Records.
Today the band has shared the album’s lead single “The Dying Song (Time to Sing)”, which is available now on all streaming platforms, accompanied by an official music video streaming on Slipknot’s YouTube channel.
Directed by the band’s own M. Shawn ‘clown’ Crahan, the “The Dying Song (Time to Sing)” video, and the track itself, sees one of the world’s most popular and deeply enigmatic bands relentlessly charting new ground as they continue to redefine, revitalize, and reimagine the scope of rock music.
Speaking about the forthcoming album, Crahan asserted: “New Music, new art, and new beginnings. Get ready for the end”.

Produced By Slipknot and Joe Barresi, “The End, So Far” is available to pre-order today with several vinyl variants available here. The album includes the band’s 2021 surprise single “The Chapeltown Rag” and follows their widely celebrated 2019 release, “We Are Not Your Kind”, which marked Slipknot’s third consecutive #1 on the Billboard 200. The release made a massive global impact with #1 debuts in the Official Album Charts of twelve countries around the world, including the UK, Australia, Canada and Mexico, with Top 5 debuts in an additional twelve countries including Germany, France and Sweden.
