SLIPKNOT UNVEIL SHORT NEW ALBUM TEASER ON FACEBOOK AND TWITTER

SlipknotSlipknot have revealed what appears to be a short 15-second teaser trailer for their upcoming new album. The video can be viewed on the band’s Official Facebook Page and in the Tweet above. The band has also updated it’s Facebook Profile and Cover photos, which were blacked out for the last few months. Slipknot also recently announced their 2014 U.S. installment of Knotfest, which is set tot take place October 24-26 in San Bernardino, CA. Back in February, front man Corey Taylor confirmed that Slipknot will officially begin “major work” on a new album in March, suggesting that the band has gone into pre-production. The band has compiled 17 demos to choose from for the upcoming album. “I’ve written lyrics for everything that we have right now and it’s feeling pretty good,” Taylor told Kerrang!. “It feels like the story of the band so far, which is a totally different take on what I’ve been used to writing with Slipknot, but I think because of everything we’ve been through, it’s time to tell that story. It’s going to be everything you want in a Slipknot album, and everything you wouldn’t expect.”

As far as the sound and feel of the record, Taylor added, “I can say that, to me — and this is only my opinion — it’s a cross between ‘Iowa’ and ‘Volume 3,’ but that’s honestly just scratching the surface. I think fans are going to be very, very excited when they hear this stuff.” While their may be familiar sounds of Slipknot’s past on this new outing, two things will be very different this time around. Since the release of their last album, All Hope Is Gone, in 2008, the band experienced the death of bassist Paul Gray in 2010. Just over two months ago, the band and drummer Joey Jordison officially parted ways. There’s no word yet on how the band will address these issues for the recording process. In 2012, former guitarist Donnie Steele handled bass duties on the band’s festival dates, but played off-stage. – by Matt Bishop
