Dead Memories Video Premiere

“Dead Memories" - The song comes from the band’s most recent album All Hope is Gone and was written by singer Corey Taylor about the painful collapse of his marriage to his ex-wife. The video was co-directed by Paul Brown and band percussionist Clown.

Commentary by Shawn “Clown” Crahan:
I’ve been doing directing and writing treatments and working with most of our videos from the beginning. I’ve always been the guy. It’s not that I wanted to be a director or write scripts or treatments. It’s just that I’m not interested in other people’s ideas. I’m not at that time of my career where I’m worrying about breaking crazy artists to come in and mold us as a sculpture for them to further their art. I’ve always been the guy who’s had to force my opinion, and that’s how you get to co-direct. This video, I’m co-directing with Paul Brown, and he decided to finally be the guy after 12 years to look me in the eye and say, “You’re gonna co-direct the video. You’re gonna do filming because you’re great at it.”

And the treatment is my idea. And it was a very serious time for me because I felt that Slipknot had to move in a different way than what we’ve been doing. I just took a good look at “Dead Memories,” and it’s a really personal song for Corey, so I got together with him and told him my idea of having all these rooms in the video. I had him pick what each room would be, and basically, Paul Brown mentored over me and forced me into this.

For me, doing this is huge. I can almost smell and taste what I see and little things, little edits make me weep. So it’s an honor to be able to co-direct a video this and I don’t think people have seen anything like this from us. It’s out there, man. It’s really out there because it’s time. I don’t want to waste time anymore on people’s fundamental ideas on what they think Slipknot is. We’ve given enough. We’ve given everybody a little bit of what they’ve needed to market us, sell us, present us. We’ve done that because we want to impact the entire world.

And this is a very expensive video. It’s actually a short film, and most people thought we were going to bite off way too much, and we did, but that’s the way we like it. And the sole purpose of this short film was to be an experiment to help Corey finalize “Dead Memories.” I took it that deep. He thought he finalized ideas by laying lyrics down to a musical score. Well, guess what? I’m gonna dig it all back up and force you into eight categories of this insanity in your mind. And it’s art, so who knows what it means? Who cares what it means? Just let it mean what it means to you.
