Slipknot to release latest single 'Goodbye' in February Slipknot to release latest single 'Goodbye' in February » 05 Jan 16
Slipknot have announced the release of latest single 'Goodbye' in February.

Slipknot rounded off 2015 with two huge Knotfest performances in LA and Mexico, whereas the nine piece bulldoze their way through European arenas this January including two UK dates with venerable thrashing mentalists Suicidal Tendencies in tow.

Corey Taylor had this to say about the song
'Goodbye is a very special song in the fact that, subject matter wise it's about the day we lost Paul(Gray, former bassist) and it's about when everyone in the band sitting in my house, without Paul and the silence was so thick that you could cut it. The numbness and the pain was so brutal that we really didn't know what to do so we just sat there for a while and slowly but surely we began to talk and really get to the point where we could cry, that's what the song's about'

Wed 10th Feb - London Alexandra Palace
Fri 12th Feb - Birmingham Genting Arena (formerly LG/NIA)

There is no easy way to say this…our mighty, noble friend Lemmy passed away today after a short battle with an extremely aggressive cancer.

"We cannot begin to express our shock and sadness, there aren’t words. We will say more in the coming days, but for now, please…play Motörhead loud, play Hawkwind loud, play Lemmy’s music LOUD. Have a drink or few and Share stories.
Celebrate the LIFE this lovely, wonderful man celebrated so vibrantly himself. HE WOULD WANT EXACTLY THAT."
