Slipknot Releases New Short Film Titled “Pollution”

Jason Bullinger for Alternative Revolt

Slipknot have shared “Pollution,” a twenty-minute short film directed by the band’s own M. Shawn Crahan, which is streaming now on the band’s YouTube channel.  The expanded film centers around Slipknot’s official music video for “Nero Forte,” which captures the band delivering a pummeling technicolor performance.  “Nero Forte” is featured on the GRAMMY® Award-winning group’s chart-topping new album ‘We Are Not Your Kind’.

Crahan elaborated on the film stating, “I set out to make a short film that makes you question your own existence, here in this reality.  When you lay down in your bed, next to the one you love, do you ever ask yourself – is it possible that this person could slit my throat while I’m sleeping? Enjoy. Pollution is everywhere.”

‘We Are Not Your Kind’ staked its claim as one of 2019’s top albums, earning #1 album nods from Rolling Stone and Kerrang! in their year-end roundups, alongside additional “Best of 2019” accolades from Revolver, Consequence of Sound, Loudwire, Alternative Press and more.  “With their latest studio album, Slipknot have released one of the strongest albums in their career,” remarked Consequence of Sound.  The Ringer professed, “Slipknot’s sixth album ‘We Are Not Your Kind’… furthers the argument that they’re the most important heavy band of their era,” while Vulture praised the LP for its “maelstrom of serrated riffs, warlike drums, and machine-gun poetry from Taylor,” and The UK’s NME put it simply: “The ‘Knot’s sixth album is an astonishing record.”

Having just headlined Viva El Rock Fest in Lima, Peru alongside The Strokes and Interpol, Slipknot will head to Europe this January for a headline arena tour featuring special guests Behemoth.  [see itinerary below].  The European leg of the We Are Not Your Kind World Tour begins January 14th in Dublin, Ireland, and follow Slipknot’s massively successful North American Knotfest Roadshow tour.
