"The Devil In I", the new performance video from SLIPKNOT, can be seen below. The clip was filmed during the band's Knotfest, which was held October 25-26 in Devore, California.
"The Devil In I" is taken from SLIPKNOT's new album, ".5: The Gray Chapter", which sold around 132,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 1 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores on October 21 via Roadrunner.
A disgruntled former drumtech for SLIPKNOT has revealed the identity of the band's newest members by posting a picture of a backstage call sheet on Instagram.
The sheet, posted by Norm Costa, shows the names Jay Weinberg, their new drummer and Alessandro Venturella, the bassist. While the sheet doesn't point out who is who, Venturella's identity was pretty much revealed on accident in SLIPKNOT's music video for "The Devil In I", where Venturella's hand tattoos were visible.
Singer Corey Taylor admitted he was unhappy when distinctive tattoos on Venturella's hand identified him as SLIPKNOT's new bassist. At the time, Corey said, "I was, like, 'Why didn't we make him wear gloves?' I was so upset. I was, like, we thought of all this stuff. We put the hood on him and then the mask... And then there is his tattoos for everybody [to see]. I was, like, 'Well, we missed the mark on that one.'"
SLIPKNOT's first major headlining tour in support of ".5: The Gray Chapter", dubbed "Prepare For Hell", also featured KORN and KING 810.
The trek kicked off on October 29 in El Paso, Texas and wrapped up on December 7 in Boston.
