Slipknot have just revealed that they’ve already written a brand-new song with Eloy Casagrande.

A short but very exciting post on their official Instagram featuring their latest band line-up confirms that the ’Knot have a track in the works entitled Long May You Die.

“Slipknot fans are talking amongst themselves about Long May You Die being a new song written during the recent recording sessions,” they write. “You’re right. You’re absolutely right.”

In his recent first interview all about becoming a part of Slipknot, Eloy had teased that they’d worked on new material together, almost as part of the whole process of joining.

“I think that was also part of the audition, they threw new ideas at me to see what my songwriting was like,” he said. “They wanted to test me in every way.”

However, the drummer did add that, “I’m still trying to understand how the dynamics of the band work – it’s not so clear yet how things work in terms of records and new songs. We’ve written a few things, and they’re shelved for the time being…

“I don’t think there’s any pressure to record new material. But I’m sure they want to, I don’t know when, because right now the band is focused on celebrating its 25th anniversary.”

Well, it looks like focus is also on new material, too! Bring it on…
