"It’s a punisher man. It's classic Slipknot," says Corey Taylor. "And it's frenetic. But lyrically, it's coming from a point of talking about the various manipulations that can happen when social media meets media itself. And the different ways that these manipulations can try to pull us in different directions, in the fact that we're all becoming addicts to it, which is very, very dangerous.”
"The Chapeltown Rag facilitates a sort of mindset that you're going to like: it's along the barnburner side of thing,” adds his bandmate Shawn 'Clown' Crahan.
The song was recorded during Slipknot for their yet-to-be-announced new album.
