Slipknot, "Nero Forte"

On Monday (Dec. 16), Slipknot shared the neon-tinted video for their latest single "Nero Forte," and also announced the dates for their 2020 European and Asian tours.

The clip is pure, abstract nightmare fuel, with the band performing the intense track while bathed in flashing neon lights and wearing their signature masks. "A home like yours is upside down/ Too much animosity/ Nobody does it better than the enemy/ A hope like yours won't help me now/ You can do your worst to me/ At the end of the day, that's what you do best," vocalist Corey Taylor rages over the more melodic lines of the track's sinister chorus.

For their 2020 trek, the veteran heavy metal rockers will kick off a run of 36 shows at 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland on Jan. 14, with stops in major cities across Europe, Japan and Southeast Asia before wrapping up on March 29 in Manila, Philippines.

Later this summer, Slipknot will head to back to Spain and the U.K. for the inaugural Knotfest at Sea and Knotfest U.K., respectively, as well as one more stop in Wacken, Germany for Wacken Open Air.
