I can’t for the life of me figure out why anyone would download this new app from Slipknot.
I watched the trailer for it, and can not figure out what it is, exactly — other than not very responsive.
The “Wear The Mask” app has been launched across the iOS and Android platforms.
A press release tells me that the “app is as much about the fans as it is the band. ‘Wear The Mask’ has social, gameplay, and photography aspects, but it is not any one of those things exclusively.”
No. I have no idea what it is.
Here’s “percussionist” M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan to clear things up.
“Welcome to what we are. Welcome to what you are, and what we together have always been. Slipknot is not a band. We are a culture and you are our blood. We play for blood. Enjoy your new face. It has always been there with you. Strap it on and let’s infect the entire world together as one. It’s time to Wear The Mask. Stay (sic) and enjoy it.”
I didn’t know money and blood were interchangeable words.
Slipknot’s new greatest hits album hit stores this week, too.
