Slipknot have uploaded a video teaser to their social media channels, hinting that something is coming “soon.”

The abstract 42-second clip appears to show a figure fighting with a weapon in slow-motion, while the static-filled audio is eventually joined by a drum line.

There’s been no further word from the band, who will kick off their European and UK tour later tonight at Dublin’s 3Arena.

Slipknot are on the road in support of their latest studio album We Are Not Your Kind and will be joined by special guests Behemoth.

Slipknot will also return to the UK on August 22 for Knotfest UK, with tickets for the “mind-altering collision of music, art and culture” at The National Bowl, Milton Keynes, going on sale from 10am this coming Thursday (January 16) through Live Nation.

Fans will also be able to gain access to a Live Nation pre-sale from 10am on Wednesday by signing up for "My Live Nation" on the website.
