The new Slipknot video for “Killpop” features Sid Wilson wearing a new mask—his sixth, and second to be designed by Bob Basset. The song itself has been described by its authors as a reflection of their relationship with music and its commercial side, “the people in the suits who try to run stuff.”

“Killpop” was well received by critics, with Loudwire and Metal Injection calling it the best song on .5: The Gray Chapter, the album dedicated to the memory of Slipknot bassist Paul Gray, who died in 2010.

Like all other Slipknot videos, “Killpop” was directed by M. Shawn Crahan.

The band is currently on tour in support of their seventh album, with a new release planned for 2017.
