Slipknot tease mystery event with ‘One Night Only’ billboard

Slipknot have teased a mystery upcoming event with a cryptic billboard message in California that reads ‘ONE NIGHT ONLY’.

The apparent advert popped up on a billboard on the highway to Coachella 2024 over the last week, bearing the band’s logo alongside a second slogan of ‘LONG MAY YOU DIE’.

Also included on the banner is a link to youcantkillme.com, a vintage website that is adorned with references to the band’s self-titled 1999 album (via Revolver).

The site also carries the band’s upcoming live dates, and includes a note that the page was last updated on April 25 – next week. All taken together, fans have started to speculate that the band are teasing a possible 25th anniversary show for the ‘Slipknot’ album.

It comes at a time when rumours of new music from the band has been percolating among their fanbase.

The last album the nu-metal icons released was ‘The End, So Far’, which arrived back in August 2022. It proved to be the last full-length LP before the departure of both keyboardist Craig Jones, who left the group in June, and Jay Weinberg, who was suddenly kicked out of the line-up shortly after.

In the time since, Slipknot have been teasing fans with hints about a new drummer, posting a photo of a single broken drumstick online with the caption “Rehearsal.” However, according to the comments on the post, it looks like the band have more than live shows planned.

In the post on their Instagram page, Mick Thompson’s wife Stacey left a comment reading “That song tho” – catching the attention of fans and sparking rumours of a new song on the way.

That comment led some fans reached out to the wife of frontman Corey Taylor, Alicia, on X/Twitter, to ask her for further information. “Did you listen to the new Slipknot song?” one user asked her, to which she replied: “I always hear the new music. I won’t talk about it though”.

She also responded to another curious fan on X, who asked if she had to sign a non-disclosure agreement to prevent her from talking about potential new material. “Not me, but they know I have respect for their world,” she responded.

In other Slipknot news, over the week fans have become increasingly certain that they have worked out the identity of the new drummer – speculating that the new member is Sepultura drummer Eloy Casagrande.

This comes following the Brazilian metal band recently announcing that they had parted ways with the longtime member ahead of their final world tour.

Speaking to NME about what Slipknot have planned for 2024, founding member Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan said: “I’m ready to move on from what has been, and move onto a world that I know needs to be. For instance, normally we’d have about two years on and one-and-a-half years off — we’re not doing that anymore.

“We’re going back to basics. I’m ready to kick everybody in the face again! I’m ready to do a 100-person venue again! I’m ready to do a 500-person venue…”
