Slipknot are currently near the end of their first leg of North American Roadshow dates, and will head to mainland Europe next month for a run of 16 dates. 

Meanwhile, it looks like the long wait for new music is almost over. Speaking to the crowd during Slipknot's Knotfest Roadshow performance in Moline, Illinois on June 5, Corey Taylor said, "I'm gonna start some shit by telling you that probably within the next month, you will probably hear some new fuckin' Slipknot shit."

It'll be the band's first release since The Chapeltown Rag dropped in November last year. According to statements from Taylor and Clown, the new album is apparently very "experimental", while one track is "the heaviest blues song on earth". We're also promised that the album will contain celestial soundscapes featuring samples of "different moons around different planets".
