The Slipknot promotional machine isn’t quite in full swing, but it’s in half swing, and it’s already irritating. The band just released a mysterious teaser video yesterday, and now they’ve gone ahead and released another one, this one with the caption “How Dare You Martyr Me.” It seems to be roughly as helpful as the one from yesterday — which is to say, it doesn’t tell us anything. I’m guessing it was made by Clown. It seems pretty Clownish.

I think it’s a safe bet we’ll get another one of these goddamn things tomorrow, before the band makes some kind of big announcement on Thursday and then debuts their new masks on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Friday. Hopefully there will be a new single before the week is done, so we actually have something to sink our teeth into, and not just a bunch of shit reminding us of shit that we already know (e.g., there’s a new Slipknot album coming out).
