SLIPKNOT has released “Pollution,” a 20-minute short film directed by the band’s own M. Shawn Crahan. The expanded film, which cane be seen below, centers around SLIPKNOT‘s official music video for “Nero Forte,” which captures the band delivering a pummeling technicolor performance.

“I set out to make a short film that makes you question your own existence, here in this reality,” Crahan comments: When you lay down in your bed, next to the one you love, do you ever ask yourself — is it possible that this person could slit my throat while I’m sleeping? Enjoy. Pollution is everywhere.”

SLIPKNOT released their sixth studio album, We Are Not Your Kind, on August 9 via Roadrunner Records. Album was once again recorded at a Los Angeles studio with producer Greg Fidelman, who engineered and mixed SLIPKNOT‘s 2004 album Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses) and helmed 2014’s .5: The Gray Chapter.

In March, SLIPKNOT announced the departure with Fehn after he filed a lawsuit against his band members over unpaid loyalties.

In his lawsuit, Fehn claims to have always been told that the money from merchandise and touring is funneled through one sole company that splits profits and pays the members of the band. However, Fehn claims he recently discovered that his bandmates have set up several other SLIPKNOT-affiliated business entities in different states that appear to be collecting money from the band.
