Slipknot is back with the third video for the third single from their massively successful fifth album .5: The Grey Chapter. The song is called “Killpop” and is (with a few choice censoring beeps) a radio friendly slice of pop metal perfection. The video is not terribly original in its “creepy girls contorting in ominous warehouse ruins” theme, but does fit nicely in the Slipknot canon.
In related news, Slipknot has announced that its massive, weekend-long metal festival Knotfest will return for the second straight year to San Manuel Amphitheater in San Bernadino, California. Knotfest will take place October 23-25 and tickets go on sale Monday June 29th. No word on the lineup yet, but if it’s as good as last year it will be a must see.

I’ll be there once again to give you full coverage. Be sure to check out my reviews of last year’s Knotfest — Day 1 and Day 2 — in the meantime and enjoy the video for “Killpop.”
