SLIPKNOT have posted a behind the scenes look at the making of the video for their song “All Out Life“. The band’s own percussionist M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan directed that video after inviting fans to appear via an open casting call in what was described as being a 20th anniversary music video casting call.
The fans who were picked for the shoot were not aware at the time what they were filming. The music video and track were then later surprise released on Halloween, October 31st. “All Out Life” served as the first taste of the band’s forthcoming new album, which they are due to begin tracking in January. The finished video for “All Out Life” can be found here.
“Come one, come all. We challenge you to All Out Life. You know we have always played for blood as well as you, our fans, have. So welcome to the beginning of a story that starts with the maggots themselves. As it should be. At this point we are a culture and a strong one at that. Things are rising once again and as always it begins and ends with you. Wake up and decide to give all you are to us and in return we will deliver a message that has always been the same which is, we the band give everything we are to our fans. You want my blood, Sweat and tears, well then you will get it. I’m not one for giving a million explanations. It’s art, so enjoy this first imagery that is the beginning window into what is to come. It’s a journey that you will be invited into. You at times will be lost, but you will always return. Enjoy this video and remember, if you want blood then you shall have it. Get ready for what’s to come. It’s right in front of you. – clown”
